By far the best book is Raymond E. Brown's book, The Birth of the Messiah. This book is not a conservative treatment, but the scholarship is unmatched.

John P. Meier's A Marginal Jew: Rethinking the Historical Jesus Volume 1 and Volume 2 is a close second.

N. T. Wright, Jesus and the Victory of God is another great book.
