Biography

I am currently chair of the Humanities Department at Wright College, in Chicago. Among my thirty scholarly publications are (1) an article on Emerson in the Oxford University Encyclopedia of American Literature, (2) an essay on Hawthorne’s Romanticism in Harold Bloom’s Hawthorne, and (3) a study of Wilde’s Picture of Dorian Gray in the Norton Critical Edition of that novel. I received a Ph.D. in English from the University of Pennsylvania in 1972.

My purpose in this book is to clear away the myths that interfere with our understanding of Jesus. My argument is that traditional views of Jesus, which have been challenged by contemporary scholars, have resulted, first, in tragic consequences for Jews because of the claim that they killed Jesus and, second, in a misrepresentation of Jesus, who was born a Jew and died one, faithful to the end.
