Portraying themselves as challenging blind religious dogma with evidence-led skepticism, the neo-atheist movement claims that the New Testament contains unreliable tales about a mythical figure who, far from being the resurrected Lord of life, may not even have lived. This comprehensive critique documents the falsehood of these neo-atheist claims, correcting their historical and philosophical mistakes to show how we can get at the truth about the historical Jesus. ""Peter Williams is a highly regarded Christian intellectual, and his writings and lectures always engage important topics in a rigorous and skillful way. Getting at Jesus may be his best and most important book to date. The book manages to be, at once, well researched, insightful in the topics covered, very well ordered in the flow of the book's argument, and interesting to read. I highly endorse Williams' outstanding contribution to believers and unbelievers alike."" --JP Moreland, Distinguished Professor of Philosophy, Biola University, author of Scientism and Secularism ""Are the high profile neo-atheists right when they claim that there is little-to-no evidence for the existence of Jesus, much less his exalted self-understanding, the historical reliability of the Gospels, or the veracity of the resurrection? Peter S. Williams leaves no stone unturned to amass the most comprehensive collection of scholarly testimony against these novel and misguided claims that is available today. Time and time again, he shows how the critics do not even follow their own alleged standards for truth. A must read for anyone who cares about evidence and not just propaganda."" --Craig L.
