This book is recommended by John J Collins, Professor of Biblical Exegesis and Interpretation at Yale University who has written the Forward (see extract below). It arrived at my office this afternoon. I immediately jumped to chapter 8 Jesus Was Wrong as I suspected this would cover the same problems I wrestled with as a Christian. And so it was: the author identified the same problems I had noticed, discussed the same possible solutions, examined NT Wright’s popular interpretation of Jewish Apocalyptic, and concluded as I had done that the Jesus of the synoptic gospels had prophesied the End of the World within the generation of people then living in the first century. The Jesus of the gospels was wrong.
As New Testament scholar Professor Dale C. Allison, Jr comments:
Christians can ignore the facts that Stark brings into the light of day only if they want to be wrong
I highly recommend this book to dawah carriers and Christians who wish to get to grips with the true nature of the Bible.
