They Really Saw Him

In Jesus and the Eyewitnesses, English NT scholar Richard Bauckham has produced a masterful rebuttal of the claims of form criticism as applied to the Gospels. Dr Bauckham has been ably defending his research at the recent gathering of the Society of Biblical Literature in San Diego and gaining a measure of respect from the critics in the process - no easy feat. But this book is not merely an academic endeavour, it is a service to the church. If you are a preacher you may wish to consider placing this book on your wishlist.
