Recommended Reading

Besides my own e-book series A Christian Response to Jesus Mythicism, there are many books written from a Christian viewpoint that can help prepare the faithful to defend Christianity from the claims of Jesus mythicists. These include not only books dealing with Jesus mythicism directly, but also those answering challenges on related issues such as the historical Jesus, the reliability of the New Testament, and church history. Books will be added to this list on a regular basis. While not every book on the list needs to be read (although that would be a great help), one should be familiar with a sampling of then – particularly in areas where one might not be familiar with current scholarship.
