- How close in time are the New Testament documents to the life of Jesus?
- Why should we believe the writings of "biased" early Christians?
- Were any of the writers of the New Testament books eyewitnesses to the events it records?
- How can we know that what was originally written has not been altered through the centuries?
"It is good news that Dr. Barnett's book is available. He shows how perfectly the account of Jesus and his followers fits into history."
RICHARD HOLTClovis, NMAge: 45-54Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5Very HelpfulAugust 2, 2014RICHARD HOLTClovis, NMAge: 45-54Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Barnett is a well-known and highly respected New Testament scholar. I found this book to be very helpful. He defends the New Testament's reliability by presenting relevant evidence and by comparing it with the evidence from other ancient writings. He shows that the New Testament evidence far exceeds the criteria that scholars use in determining the reliability of other works. Yet, in many cases, literature with less and weaker supporting evidence, is held in high regard while the reliability of the New Testament continues to be disputed. I found his argument to be largely persuasive.
