    ... I had not heard about Barnett before. Are any published reviews on this book available? What approach is he likely to take on the Historical Christ ?--

      I had not heard about Barnett before. Are any published reviews on this
      book available? What approach is he likely to take on the "Historical
      Christ"?-- the title, btw, seems to provide a clue.
