Has the Quest for the "Historical Jesus" Run Its Course?

Scot McKnight believes so. N. T. Wright, Craig Keener, and Darrell Bock disagree.
The Historical Reliability of the GospelsMy two cents: McKnight makes some very good points (especially debunking the "first wave" of historical Jesus scholarship), which are not lost on the follow-up commentators. But they soundly criticize his pronouncement of "the end" of historical Jesus scholarship.
All articles are well worth the read, for the vital importance of the topic and the quality of dialogue on it.
On historical Jesus study, I personally recommend The Historical Reliability of the Gospels by Craig L. Blomberg.
