What Our Customers Say...

Description

This work is a parody critical of the mythological interpretation of the New Testament by D F Strauss in his 'The Life of Jesus'. 

Written by Richards Whately, an English academic, rhetorician, logisian and economist. Whately was a leading Broad Churchman and was an Archbishop of Dublin. He is credited as being one of the first reviewers to recognise Jane Austen's talents.
