"If you want an up-to-date, clear and compelling presentation of the evidence for the historical accuracy of the Gospels, this is the book for you!"
"I warmly recommend this book."
"This new edition provides further interaction with the larger field of scholarship of the past twenty years. Designed for both the informed layperson and theological student/scholar, Historical Reliability sets forth arguments for the gospels as historically sound sources. For the general readership, the central argument is set forth in an engaging and accessible manner. For those more interested in particular issues covered by Blomberg, the footnotes provide access to the context of the discussion. Although not everyone will agree with his conclusions, Blomberg sets forth a compelling case worthy of consideration. For scholar, theological student, and layperson alike, Historical Reliability is a valuable text."
david3 Stars Out Of 5a decent conservative shotJanuary 3, 2012davidQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 3this book sets out to defend the gospels as historically reliable, and is basically an apologetics work on the subject. it is a scholarly treatment to be sure, as Craig Blomberg is no lightweight, be that as it may, this work is polemical and seems to simply totally miss the point in that the nature of so much of the literature spawned by 2nd temple judaistic and greco/roman literature, are a mix of historical kernels with many embellishements and what today would be called myth. ( see Eric Gruen's Heritage and Hellenism and also Michael Grant's Greek and Roman Historians. ) at any rate, for a decently intelligent stab at defending the gosples as mostly straightforwardly historically reliable, this is worth the effort to read and study.
