Scholars cringe! May 26, 2000
When evidence comes to light that maybe we don't know EVERYTHING about the gospels scholars, like attack dogs they tear apart, discredit, or out and out LIE to the public to keep there dogma.This book happens to be a very in-depth source of information. it wasn't the easiest read unless you are a theology major some passages do not make sense to the layperson.Anybody who has studied the bible knows the gospels aren't without mistakes and rewrites by scholars and this book helps us know more about the religon that changed the world!
