One of the best researched books on Jesus ever written has recently appeared.
It shows Jesus as a man in his time not as a God. Christians have reacted strongly against it but it is must for anyone who wants to know about a man in his background and the later development of myths about him.
One Christian has even made a feeble attempt to discredit the book on a news channel (video now online) by saying that there is too much research in the book and it could not have been done. He is behind the times. Computer searching and reference tools make it possible to find much more than previously.
Atheists should enjoy the book. Whenever I have to recommend a book to anyone from now on, Christian or not, this will be the book.
