Is the New Testament Reliable? A Look at the Historical Evidence
From The Publisher:
Paul Barnett offers a careful historical analysis of the New Testament texts, taking into account evidence presented by the texts themselves and evidence provided by other religious and non-religious sources.
These are the questions Paul Barnett tackles in this clear and straightforward book. He considers how reliable the New Testament documents are in light of the evidence and standard methods of historical research. The answers will prove enlightening to anyone interested in the trustworthiness of the New Testament.
"I know other book which in short compass does such an excellent job."
