As the dean of Luke-Acts studies in America, Henry J. Cadbury also wrote groundbreaking treatments of Jesus and early Christianity. In The Peril of Modernizing Jesus, Cadbury helps us consider the Jesus of his day rather than the Jesus of our making. Subjects covered in this book include anachronism in thinking about Jesus; the cause and cure of modernism; the Jewishness of the Gospels; Jesus and the mentality of our age; limitations of Jesus’s social teachings; purpose, aim, and motive in Jesus; and the religion of Jesus.
