The origin of the present volume may be traced to an article by the Rev. R. Roberts of Bradford, which appeared in the hibbert journal for January 1909, under the title Jesus or Christ? An Appeal for Consistency. As some of the writers in the volume refer to this article, it has been reprinted at the end for purposes of reference. At the same time it should be understood that what follows in these pages has a more comprehensive aim than that of discussing the conclusions of Mr Roberts. What is here under discussion is the whole problem of the relation of the Jesus of History to the Christ Of Religion, and not alone the particular aspects of it, or the View of those aspects, selected for treatment by the writer aforesaid. Contributors have been requested to deal with the matter freely, and to refer to Mr Roberts only as occasion might require.
