I have the 1st one but not the 2nd one. It seems to be very short, any feedback before to buy it?

Thanks in advance,

It was written by Wright in 1992 in response to three books that had just been published outlining different theories about the "historical Jesus".

Wright outlines the context in which the books were written, gives an overview of what they are saying and responds to them. In his words:

The third way of replying to books like those of Thiering, Wilson and Spong is to show quite briefly the context of discussion in which they belong, the broad lines of their arguments, and the main reasons why they are to be discounted. That is the task of the present book

N. T. Wright, Who Was Jesus? (London: Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge, 1992), viii–ix.

So written in a particular setting for a particular reason and the debate will have moved on in the last 25 years.

In the final chapter of the book Wright outlines some of his understanding as to who Jesus was - and he develops this further in some of his larger / later works.

Well worth reading as part of an understanding of the quest for gaining a deeper understanding of the Jesus of history.
