Jan 05, 2020 rated it it was amazing  ·  review of another edition
A short and highly readable overview of how historians study history, as well as the latest evidence, methodology and conclusions of mainstream Christian and non-Christian scholars on the historical life of Jesus. There's tonnes of surprises in there that will leave you confident that the Bible we read today is good testimony about the real Jesus.

John takes an overview of how history is studied overall, then applies this to Jesus. Great short read, easy to follow. Liked the reminder that definition of faith should be based on reliable trusted testimony, not blind faith. Recommended. ...more
