In Did Jesus Exist? historian and Bible expert Bart Ehrman confronts the question, "Did Jesus exist at all?" Ehrman vigorously defends the historical Jesus, identifies the most historically reliable sources for best understanding Jesus' mission and message, and offers a compelling portrait of the person at the heart of the Christian tradition. Known as a master explainer with deep knowledge of the field, Bart Ehrman methodically demolishes both the scholarly and popular "mythicist" arguments against the existence of Jesus. Marshaling evidence from within the Bible and the wider historical record of the ancient world, Ehrman tackles the key issues that surround the mythologies associated with Jesus and the early Christian movement. In Did Jesus Exist?: The Historical Argument for Jesus of Nazareth, Ehrman establishes the criterion for any genuine historical investigation and provides a robust defense of the methods required to discover the Jesus of history.

Your comment is not a particularly strong one. What exactly in Ehrman's book is "not particularly good" according to you? Blanket statements like that serve no purpose other than obfuscate the lack of any logical arguments that could shed light on the author's thesis. Can you give an example of "lies" you found in it? What problems of logic did you find?

Please, next time you write a comment ask yourself what does it contribute to the reader's knowledge.

Not a particularly good book. Full of lies and faulty logic. Shame on Ehrman for writing this junk

This is a tremendous book. Ehrman is an historian who takes a professional and balanced look at the evidence surrounding the controversy of whether or not a man (Jesus) actually physically existed. This book is well written and interesting. It provides an extensive bibliography both pro and con about Jesus' existence. A great starting point for those with limited background on the subject. Well worth the read.
