The Search is neither predominately scholarly, historical, nor inspirational. Rather, it is a book that seeks to understand why Jesus said what he said and did what he did in light of the fact that he was not only a loyal Galilean Jew but he was also a loyal Roman subject, who was probably educated in Greco-Roman influenced schools, who probably worked under the authority of Roman administrators, who ministered under the protection of Roman officials, and who died as a enemy of Rome as mandated by Roman law.The book is not intended to present Jesus in any lesser light than that of deity. Yet, within the context of known Greco-Roman history, customs, philosophies, and manners of the time in which Jesus lived and ministered. It attempts to show under what circumstances his ministry and popularity grew and flourished in Roman Mare Nostrum and then floundered.The Search is historical in that it portrays the life of Jesus as it was in Roman Mare Nostrum East. It is scholarly in that it confirms each Gospel recorded event with non-biblical authenticating documentation. It is inspirational in that it assumes that the Gospel records are the most accurate records available about the life of Jesus and that the word and deeds recorded in the Gospel narratives have been preserved for two millennia because they were the narratives that God felt would be most spiritually beneficial to this Current generation.This book will attempt to discover Jesus' life by filling in the empty center between birth and death by reaching beyond the bare bones skeleton of historical Jesus and alighting upon the fully developed historical epic of Jesus-the loyal Jewish Roman subject of Roman Mare Nostrum East.

About the Author:

Dr. Ron Charles is well qualified to write a book about the search for historical Jesus. Although he earned a B.S. in Civil Engineering and worked as a structural engineer for 12 years, and a B.A. in Theology and pastored for 14 years, his passion has always been history and archaeology, particularly New Testament and Roman era history. As such, Dr. Charles continued his education by earning an M.A. in Ancient History, an M.A. in Historical Theology, a Ph.D. in Ancient History, a Ph.D. in International Relations, and a Th.D. in Historical Theology. Dr. Charles spent 33 years, traveled to over 50 countries, and was involved with numerous archaeological investigations in five different countries, in his pursuit for authenticating information regarding the life of Jesus.Dr. Charles was a co-founder of the Albania-American Archaeological Society; serves on the Board of Directors of Pacific International University, Final Frontiers International, and as a member of the Board of Governors of Cambridge's Biographical and Historical Division; and has recently been a recipient of Cambridge's One Thousand Great Americas award. Dr. Charles has written six other books.Dr. Charles has been married to his wife, Paula, for 32 years, and is currently employed as a writer for Crown Financial Ministries in Gainesville, Georgia.
