Jesus in an Age of Neoliberalism analyses the ideology underpinning scholarly and popular quests for the historical Jesus in a neoliberal age. The book focus is cultural and political concerns, notably postmodernism, multiculturalism and liberal masking of power. The study explores a range of issues: the dubious periodisation of the quest for the historical Jesus; "biblioblogging"; Jesus the "Great Man" and western individualism; image-conscious Jesus scholarship; the "Jewishness" of Jesus and the multicultural Other; evangelical and "mythical" Jesuses; and the contradictions between personal beliefs and dominant ideological trends in the construction of historical Jesuses.
