Review by:
Sybil Porter

This book is, as the title states, an exhaustive study of Jesus from a psychological point of view. In the first chapter the physical personality of Jesus is dealt with and the various representations of Him as depicted by pictorial art. 'Jesus in Literature' the longest of the eleven chapters, begins with the Apocrypha and mediaeval literature and goes on to modern publications the majority of which emanate from America. Much of this provides somewhat wearisome reading, as the schemes and plots of a vast amount of novels and plays are given in résumé. Some pages in the long chapter on the 'Negative Views' are devoted to Nietzsche's criticisms and to the views of the Monists, Smith, Robertson and Drews, and to Jenson's theories.
