Since Richard Baukham's "Jesus and The Eyewitnesses: The Gospels as Eyewitness Testimony" is easily the most important book concerning the trustwortiness of the New Testament witness to be published this decade and since it was analyzed extensively on this blog, I feel I cannot do enough to promote it. I am glad to bring to your attention the remarks of Dr. Ben Witherington concerning this book on Dr. Witheringtons blog:
"Though this book did not come out in 2009, it has only just begun to have its full effect, and as Richard himself has said to me--it is probably his most important book. If you haven't read it yet, stop everything and do so. It puts the cat among the pidgeons when it comes to a variety of issues including the nature of how Christians passed on the sayings of Jesus and the authorship of the Gospels."
