Endorsements:

“Recent years have witnessed several attempts to ‘explain away’ Jesus as …a wandering Cynic sage…..For all who are trying to come to terms with this reconstruction, especially as represented in the well-publicized books by John Dominic Crossan and Burton Mack, this volume is invaluable.”
–D. A. Carson, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School

“John Dominic Crossan and Burton L. Mack have proved enormously influential in recent years with their radical views on a Jesus, as Cynic sage, who bore only remote resemblance to the Christ of the Gospels. Gregory Boyd offers the most thorough demolition of their theories to date. He has mastered a vast secondary literature and selected from it judiciously. Boyd thus represents clearly compelling counter arguments, which open the door once again to belief in the general trustworthiness of the New Testament portraits of Jesus. This book represents a scholarly milestone in the growing library of Victor Books’ young BridgePoint imprint.”
–Craig Blomberg, Denver Seminary

“Boyd’s book provides us with a detailed response to the arguments of Crossan, Mack and others about the character of Jesus’ ministry and of the early church. His arguments show wide-reaching and careful analysis. I recommend this book to those interested in Jesus as sage and Son of God.”
–Ben Witherington III, Asbury Theological Seminary

“Seldom does one find the kind of painstaking scrutiny and bibliographic competence exhibited by Greg Boyd in Cynic Sage or Son of God? While writing with the careful insight of a scholar intensely concerned with primary sources, Dr. Boyd also reaches the same audience addressed by the Jesus Seminar: general readers interested in the factual basis for the historical Jesus.”
