Portraying themselves as challenging blind religious dogma with evidence-led skepticism, the neo-atheist movement claims that the New Testament contains unreliable tales about a mythical figure who, far from being the resurrected Lord of life, may not even have lived. This comprehensive critique documents the falsehood of these neo-atheist claims, correcting their historical and philosophical mistakes to show how we can get at the truth about the historical Jesus.

'This is a book that does what it says it will do, Williams looks at the key objections that the New-Atheists have made about the historical Jesus and he deals with them in great detail and systematically. It feels a bit like a Josh McDowell book in that Williams compiles a great many quotes and assembles evidence from a range of thinkers rather than just working through the arguments himself, though we do encounter some of his own original thinking. He is also a more rounded apologist than McDowell. However, this exhaustive compilation of data is the purpose of this book and it is very well done, not least because of the systematic way in which the material is presented.

This book is divided up into 5 chapters and deals with the new atheist objections to things such as the existence of Christ, the miracles, the reliability of the gospels and the resurrection. There are two things I particularly like about Williams approach. Firstly, his wide reading, drawing not just from standard evangelical scholars and apologists to make his case, but also from critical scholars, Catholic scholars and even key atheist thinkers. Secondly, in the text of the book he includes copious references to articles, books and YouTube clips that illustrate the points being made. Many of the articles are online and he gives the links to them. There are so many such references it would take a long time to make use of them all, but having them there in the text is an excellent resource for further study. Overall, while this is not a cheap book it is an excellent resource in apologetics.'
