Uniquely among the world's religions, the central claims of Christianity concern not just timeless spiritual truths, but tangible historical events. Historian John Dickson examines Christianity's claims in the light of history, opening readers to a wealth of ancient sources and explaining how mainstream scholars--whether or not they claim Christian faith personally--reach their conclusions about history's most influential figure, Jesus of Nazareth.
Dickson skillfully highlights sources and historical methods used to study Christianity's claims. He shows how historians assess the reliability of available data, and provides an honest and informed perspective on where historical issues are clear-cut and where personal faith comes into play. The Christ Files is a must-read for those looking to expand their understanding of early Christianity and the life of Jesus.
