Historian Will Durant on the Life, Character and Teachings of Jesus Christ

Will Durant stands with his pupils.
“That a few simple men should in one generation have invented so powerful and appealing a personality, so lofty an ethic, and so inspiring a vision of human brotherhood, would be a miracle far more incredible than any recorded in the Gospels. After two centuries of Higher Criticism the outlines of life, character, and teaching of Christ remain reasonably clear, and constitute the most fascinating feature in the history of Western man.” 

Courage and Godspeed,
Chad
