This work examines the historical and philosophical strengths and/or weaknesses of current evangelical approaches espousing some forms of post-modernistic historiography and its resultant search for the “historical Jesus.”  It demonstrates the marked undermining impact these efforts have had on the biblical text, especially the Gospels, as well inerrancy issues.  It compares the Jesus Seminar’s approach with current evangelical practices of searching in terms of their evidential apologetic impact on the trustworthiness of the Gospels.  A number of well-known, contemporary evangelical scholars are involved in the so-called “Third Quest” for the historical Jesus.  This book raises serious questions about such an endeavor.
