The Historical Reliability of the New Testament
Craig L. Blomberg & Robert B. Stewart
Questions about the reliability of the New Testament come from many directions today. This volume addresses all of the most common ones, including the transmission of the text, the choice of books for the canon, the formation of the Gospels, the supposed contradictions among parallels, a comparison of Jesus and Paul and another of Acts and Paul, proposals of pseudonymity for various letters, and even the value of the book of Revelation. Selected historical corroborations of details from all parts of the New Testament are also presented. A chapter on the unique problems associated with miracles rounds out the volume. This book is a fully stocked toolbox for anyone interested in whether we can still trust the New Testament in the twenty-first century. Blomberg answers the question with a ringing affirmative.
