message 1: by Tim (new)

Tim O'Neill Why is a list of "Best Historical Jesus Books" dominated by books by amateurs and hobbyists, largely self-published, which claim there was no historical Jesus? This list is ridiculous.


message 2: by Lee (new)

Lee I agree with you, Tim. It seems those who don't believe or who don't want to believe in Jesus Christ have a bit of an ax to grind. The list looks very slanted.


message 3: by Tyler (new)

Tyler Agreed 100%. This list is missing must read's by the best scholars in the world. I added some, but the top of this list is absurd.


message 4: by Lee (new)

Lee Thanks, Tyler. I am going to have a look at some of your suggestinos.
