About As New in all respects. Third printing. From the flap: "Jefferson was convinced that the authentic message of Jesus could be found only by extracting from the Gospels Jesus's message of absolute love and service, rather than the miracle of the Annunciation, Virgin Birth, or even the Resurrection. Completed in 1819, this little book is the remarkable result of Jefferson's efforts." Forrest Church was the senior minister of All Souls Church, NYC; Jaroslav Pelikan, a Yale professor, was one of the world’s leading scholars in the history of Christianity.
