Good morning, all.
I bought a little book the last time I was at Koorong, but never got around to reading it. Well, last night I did and I was very impressed!
The author was Professor Carsten Thiede, formerly of Basel (he died a few years ago). The title being, Jesus, Man or Myth? (Lion Hudson Publishers, 2005). This little gem is a brief 158 pages of non-technical (although very widely learned) discussion about Jesus Christ. It addresses historiography, archaeology, literary analysis and theological analysis, and "debunks" a number of popularist myths that seek to diminish the established facts surrounding the identity, life and ministry of Jesus.
Buy this and you won't be disappointed!
