Will most likely be removed from the canon in a future Vor Kosigan religion. Although as always, narrated brilliantly, and lois deserves endless thanks for her previous work. but no.

Yes, because the scholar tells me so.

Did Jesus Exist?

If just asserting a premise was the standard of a thesis, than Professor Bart Ehrman has written a tour de force. He states no less than 7 times in the opening chapter that Jesus 100% did exist, and then again about once every five minutes for good measure. The question mark in the title is rhetorical.

Bart introduced me to this fascinating topic and thus deserves some respect. And that sentence was it. Because with this almost offensive offering he has all at once made himself irrelevant.
Ehrman may claim to have broken away from his faith years ago, but his thinking has remained as dogmatic as a 4th century bishop. (Altho its possible Ehrman may take that as a compliment)

I don’t mind the snobbery of professors, in fact I expect it. But Ehrman has mistaken his position as educator for that of a parent. He seems concerned we will all get bogged down in uncertainty, so he claims it for us and tells us not to be so skeptical.

If this is the best there is then this field needs an inquest immediately.
5 stars - for writing so badly, so completely void of logical honesty, that this is sure to stimulate many more books in a genre begging for talent. Ehrman sets the bar so impossibly low, that everyone should feel encouraged to have a crack.
