As y’all know, I have recently written a book on the Resurrection of Jesus, the second in my “Critical Examination” trilogy that looks at the historical basis for religious and theological claims about Jesus. The books weave history, theology, and philosophy to create a concerted salvo aimed at the justification for theistic belief. Please grab yourself a copy of the first two whilst I am busy writing the third, on the Exodus (it’s not easy trying to make half a living doing this stuff!):

Well, this review might be my favourite yet – what a lovely review:

Evangelical Faith apologists continue to believe for no challenge is allowed to debunk the faith. For them, God has spoken and that’s the end of the matter. But for those of us who are genuinely interested in whether or not this story is based on fact, this scientific study, is the only book you’ll need. I cannot recommend it enough! It is indispensable!
