Rodney Stark is an agnostic, but he does a good job of telling the truth about the history of Christianity. If you want to see a good book added to this list, leave it in the comments and I’ll take a look.

    1. I’ve bought THREE!!! One for me, and two to give away for Christmas. And I bought three of Richards’ book, too – two to give away.

      Neil, have you been listening to these James Crossley podcasts with Bird, Bauckham, and also his debate with Craig? They’re really interesting. Crossley is an atheist yet he dates Mark at 35-40 AD!!! Also, he accepts the burial, the appearances and 1 Cor 15:3-8. As well, he acknowledges the early high Christology that Paul writes so very early in Philippians 2 and 1 Cor 15, although he thinks that it is not as high as in John.

      Wheeeeeee, it’s really fun!


  1. Haven’t had time for those. They sound great, though. I think Signature in the Cell will be my next giveaway (or “There is a God” by Antony Flew.
