Richard Dawkins is a noted atheist and has perpetuated many popular beliefs in his writings about historical events in the founding narratives of the movement Jesus started.
The author's purpose in this book is to address these matters of historical, empirical significance from the point of view of a scientist.
The result is a fascinating account of the life and death of Jesus as confirmed in contemporary and historical accounts.
It seeks to answer definitively the questions, did Jesus exist?
Are the gospels true? The author's critique of Dawkins' book The God Delusion, as it relates to the history of Jesus of Nazareth, is thoroughly researched and well argued, with every point supported by appropriate references.
An absorbing read for layperson, scientist and theologian, as well as anyone interested in the birth of Christianity and the effect upon the world of Jesus' teachings.
