Large numbers of atheists, humanists, and conspiracy theorists are raising one of the most pressing questions in the history of religion: Did Jesus exist at all? Was he invented out of whole cloth for nefarious purposes by those seeking to control the masses? Or was Jesus such a shadowy figure - far removed from any credible historical evidence - that he bears no meaningful resemblance to the person described in the Bible?

In Did Jesus Exist? historian and Bible expert Bart Ehrman confronts these questions, vigorously defends the historicity of Jesus, and provides a compelling portrait of the man from Nazareth. The Jesus you discover here may not be the Jesus you had hoped to meet - but he did exist, whether we like it or not.

    " Book gave lots of historical information related to the existence of Jesus. Knocks a few from the mysticism camp off their pedestal. "

    " I've read quite a few Ehrmans so far and I've enjoyed Did Jesus Exist. I didn't realize the growth of "mythicist" arguments against the existence of Jesus. As with Ehrman's other books, I like his methodical way of laying out his points--however, he gets a bit repetitive. He also repeats things occasionally... "

    " I've given this book an extra star for the pure academic nature of his argument. He outlines the logic of his argument so well that it is a model for anyone with "beliefs" that are counter to truth. As an atheist I am as outraged by illogical myths posed by atheists as I am by those of evangelicals. Zealots on both sides need to learn from Dr. Ehrman how to argue their points and when to give up beliefs that cannot be substantiated. I might have given the book 4 stars just because it became tedious but that is because of its comprehensiveness so really it counts in the book's favor. He does assume knowledge of books of the bible. I don't know the bible stories so I did not have the context to follow as closely as I'd have liked. It would be too much to have expected him to explain the context more than he did, though. That was my own unwillingness to explore them further. It's a book everyone should read. But they need to be willing to follow logic rather than hear what they want and ignore the rest. "
