Needful Scholarship! Dec 11, 2009
Short but excellently to the point in a badly needed area of early Christianity scholarship. Needful in the sense that it responds to all the revisionist history that is being spewed out by doubters, the lapsed, and congenital anti-Christian authors of recent years. These kinds of scholarly works provide the evidence that survived even the early brutal wars and persecutions that ravaged the birth-territories of Christianity.
