    Having heard of Ehrman s reputation I was disappointed in this book he seems to do what he accuses many others of doing both mythicists and believers i.e all too often he presented information or opinions as fact without supporting references or evidence.I was looking for a book that would cut through all the clutter and noise accumulated over the past 2000 years, focussing on the real historic evidence whether it be for or against the existence of Jesus This book didn t do that for me maybe I chose the wrong book.

  2. Simeon Stylites Simeon Stylites says:

    Bart Ehrman is an atheist But he is also an historian He presents in this book a convincing case for the historicity of Jesus thus confounding some of his fellow atheists who like to pretend that Jesus never existed.To be sure, the Jesus to whom this book gives historical support is not the Jesus of the Christian faith But Ehrman puts to shame all those who assert that there was never any such person that Christianity is built on myths.The Jesus you will find here is not the Jesus Christ of the religion named after him.But he is very real.Congratulations to the atheist Ehrman for an impartial historical account.

    A detailed argument for Jesus existence, but some questions remain But historical evidences are a matter of or less, certain or uncertain empirical probabilities

    Very interesting, but I m not sure I agree with Erhman s criteria for deciding what is historical.
