Why would anyone think Jesus never existed? Isn't it perfectly reasonable to accept that he was a real first century figure? As it turns out, no. Nailed sheds light on ten beloved Christian myths, and, with evidence gathered from historians across the theological spectrum, shows how they point to a Jesus Christ created solely through allegorical alchemy of hope and imagination; a messiah transformed from a purely literary, theological construct into the familiar figure of Jesus - in short, a purely mythic Christ.

A good overview of the topic, that didn't resort to the typical arguments. David Fitzgerald did very good, thorough research, and backed up his claims very well. Highly recommended.

quick easy read with lots of facts that make it hard to believe that the bible is the infallible word of god.. I am not sure that the facts support the conclusion however. worth reading all in all

Was there Jesus? We can't tell. I had always assumed that there was a real Jesus even after losing my faith. Fitzgerald lays out a pretty good skeptical case that he didn't exist. That said there is still room for doubt that he didn't exist at all. It seems to me there could have been one or several people like the bibles Jesus, but the inconsistencies outlined at least refute the "the bible is the exact word of god camp".Some things we will never know. This would be one of them.
