(4.7 stars; 10 reviews)

The following work offers in book form the series of studies on the question of the historicity of Jesus, presented from time to time before the Independent Religious Society in Orchestra Hall, Chicago, 1909. No effort has been made to change the manner of the spoken, into the more regular form of the written, word. (Summary by M.M. Mangasarian (1859-1943) and Joanne Pauwels)

Reviews

Excellent book

(5 stars)

Very well researched, this book presents some compelling arguments that show how little we really can prove regarding the existence of historical Jesus.
