Jesus Myth Book Reviews

Bede and I have, respectively, reviewed two leading Jesus Myth books, The Jesus Mysteries, by Timothy Freke and Peter Gandy, and The Jesus Puzzle, by Earl Doherty. We have also reviewed books that respond -- some more than others -- to the Jesus Myth. They are available on Bede's Library in his "Did Jesus Exist?" section.

Bede introdues the section as follows:

Though dead in scholarly circles - even among moderate and liberal ones - the idea that Jesus never existed has visceral appeal to many with negative attitudes towards Christianity. Presently, the Jesus Myth’s most forceful proponent is Earl Doherty with his book The Jesus Puzzle. There are various scholarly popular treatments such as The Jesus Mysteries. Both these books and some responses to the Jesus Myth are reviewed below.
