A proposal for an Amazon review:

From Paul to Mark answered a lot of the questions I have had about the story surrounding the origins of the Jesus figure. Laura Knight-Jadczyk goes through an incredible amount of research and adds her own insights to create a credible synthesis that reveals the origins of the philosophy and literature that became the core of the New Testament. It is a gift to Christians determined to find out how it all began, to Muslims eager to know what the available sources have to say about the Īsā ibn Maryam of the Quran, to Jews open to know more about their own history. I would not call it an easy read; it can't be when the threads have been that tangled. I also don't think it necessarily ought to be, when so many misunderstandings, that have led to countless disputes and open conflicts, can safely be put to rest. An interesting question is which directions Christianity and Islam, in all their many forms, might take now based on what is left.

I dunno. Seems to me you ought to expand a bit on the first statement about 'questions'. I think prospective readers should have some teasers.
