Why are scholars so prone to fabricate a new Jesus? Why is the public so eager to accept such claims without question? What methods and assumptions predispose scholars to distort the record? Is there a more sober approach to finding the real Jesus?
Commenting on such recent releases as Bart Ehrman's Misquoting Jesus, James Tabor's The Jesus Dynasty, Michael Baigent's The Jesus Papers and The Gospel of Judas, forwhich he served as an advisory board member to the National Geographic Society, Craig Evans offers a sane approach to examining the sources for understanding the historical Jesus.

HeyJudeLucedale, MSAge: 55-65Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5Very well written, easy for a layperson to read.May 3, 2012HeyJudeLucedale, MSAge: 55-65Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5The book is well written and is an excellent response to the "false gospels" that are out there. There is a lot of "junk" out there masquerading as truth and Craig Evans does an excellent job of exposing falsehood.
The last chapter, I thought, was the best. In the final chapter of his book, he explores the uniqueness of Jesus Christ and why the early church insisted that Jesus rose from the dead on the first day of the week. One cannot read the book, including the last chapter, without appreciating, anew, the uniqueness of Christianity and why Jesus Christ is like no other.
I would recommend the book to a seminary class or even a Sunday School class that wanted to delve deeper into the truth of the Gospels.
