02. Meet the Mythicists



In Meet the Mythicists: A Christian’s Guide to Jesus Mythicism’s Misguided Scholars and Crank Conspiracy Theorists, Albert McIlhenny presents an introduction for Christians to the major Jesus mythicist authors past and present in encyclopedia form. For most mythicists, a short bio is given along with a brutally honest evaluation of their work. Christians who are faced with mythicist sources and want to know their reliability will get quick answers. This is an introductory text that assumes the reader knows only the very basic concepts of Jesus mythicism. The e-book is designed as a reference work for Christians engaging mythicist claims.
