Reviews

This new edition provides further interaction with the larger field of scholarship of the past twenty years. Designed for both the informed layperson and theological student/scholar, Historical Reliability sets forth arguments for the gospels as historically sound sources. For the general readership, the central argument is set forth in an engaging and accessible manner. For those more interested in particular issues covered by Blomberg, the footnotes provide access to the context of the discussion. Although not everyone will agree with his conclusions, Blomberg sets forth a compelling case worthy of consideration. For scholar, theological student, and layperson alike, Historical Reliability is a valuable text. --Michael Naylor, The Expository Times, March 2009


This volume offers the most complete, accurate and up-to-date defense of a maximalist approach to the Jesus tradition. --Thomas E. Phillips, Religious Studies Review, September 2008 If you want an up-to-date, clear and compelling presentation of the evidence for the historical accuracy of the Gospels, this is the book for you! --Gregory Goswell, New Life, March 6, 2008 I warmly recommend this book. --Pieter J.
