Book #38: The Christ Files by John Dickson

This book is written for the purpose of analysing the historical evidence for the existence of Jesus. It is a bit of a heavy read, but it is not too long, and the book made some interesting points about Jesus and the writings in the Gospels.

The book does not appear to have been written from a biased point of view, and so comes across as very objective, rather than subjective, and is therefore a good book for anyone, even if they are not a committed Christian.

Next book: 2061: Odyssey Three (Arthur C. Clarke)
