Jesus, Interrupted

One charm of this book is that it is basically a summary of various things found in Bart D. Ehrman's books, including a historical-critical analysis of the New Testament, the conflicts between various books, inaccuracies, but how one still (not that he did because of the problem of evil) retain one's Christian faith. I did read somewhere else that the Suffering Messiah was not totally new c. 50 C.E., but BE does say others dispute some details.

Have you looked at "Zealot" by Reza Aslan? Gives Jesus an interesting perspective.

I recently read his book on Islam and that book is on my book reserve queue.
