"Anthony Le Donne opens the door to the past again – not by refusing postmodern historiography, but by applying its insights. If all reality is interpretative reality, both perception, memory and history, it is possible to make responsible statements on the past and on the historical Jesus. The book is a convincing plea against historical resignation – written with lucidity, esprit and common sense. I enjoyed much reading this book."
