A Myth of Innocence
Full Product Description
– James M. Robinson, Professor Emeritus, Claremont Graduate University
"This is an epic-making work because it turns scholarship on its head. Mack asks questions not about origins but about social meaning. The entire conception of what we want to know, why we want to know it, and how we shall find it out is new and compelling."
– Jacob Neusner, Bard College
"A Myth of Innocence is the most penetrating historical work on the origins of Christianity written by an American scholar in this century. Its strikingly innovative feature is the recombination of literary and social histories, and the placement of diverse Jesus movements into their respective social contexts."
– Werner H. Kelber, The Catholic Biblical Quarterly
"A Myth of Innocence is surely one of the most important studies of the origins of Christianity since Schweitzer's Quest. With a single stroke, Burton Mack has shifted the investigation from the quest for a singular genesis to the perspective of the social history and imaginative labor documented in the texts."
– Ron Cameron, Wesleyan University
