On the Historicity of Jesus: Why We Might Have Reason for Doubt
Richard Carrier argues that we need a more careful and robust theory of cultural syncretism between Jewish theology and politics of the second-temple period and the most popular features of pagan religion and philosophy of the time. For anyone intent on defending a historical Jesus, this is the book to challenge.
The revised edition corrects the numerous typographical and other minor errors listed in “Typos List for On the Historicity of Jesus” (at richardcarrier.info/archives/8551
). Pagination remains substantially the same.
