Did Jesus Exist?: The Historical Argument for Jesus of Nazareth

by Bart D Ehrman

HARPERCOLLINS PUBLISHERS | November 7, 2013 | Hardcover

Not yet rated | write a review

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?

InDid 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.

Editorial Reviews

?His newest book has turned some of his perennial critics into fans, at least temporarily. In Did Jesus Exist?: The Historical Argument for Jesus of Nazareth, Ehrman decimates the persistent arguments of those who not only deny the divinity of Jesus but insist that no such man ever even existed.?
