Recommended Readings on Historical Apologetics

Hey guys!  I know I’ve already posted a similar article listing my recommended resources on Christian apologetics, but today I wanted to offer another list that focuses specifically on historical apologetics.  This way I can divide these up into different categories concerning that area without making things confusing (plus doing it this way is more enjoyable to me for some reason).  For this post, I will only be listing books:

The Existence of Jesus and the “Copycat” Thesis

  1.  Shattering the Christ Myth: Did Jesus Not Exist? (2008), Edited by James Patrick Holding
  2.  Did Jesus Exist?: The Historical Argument for Jesus of Nazereth (2012), by Bart D. Ehrman*
  3.  Unmasking the Pagan Christ: An Evangelical Response to the Cosmic Christ Idea (2006), by Stanley E. Porter and Stephen J. Bedard
  4. Lord or Legend?: Wrestling with the Jesus Dilemma (2007), by Gregory A. Boyd and Paul R. Eddy

Recommended Apologetic Resources

BY ADDISON WIER

Hey guys!  While I’m still busy working on my next piece in Christian apologetics, I figured I’d go ahead and list some of my most highly recommended resources for anyone interested in doing their own research.  Enjoy!

NOTE: I realize that not every work listed here is written by a scholar in the relevant field(s).  However, I’ve found that they still offer good material nonetheless (and they actually do their research).
