    this 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.
