With the assistance of historian Richard Carrier, I have just published Jesus Did Not Exist: A Debate Among Atheists, as a spiritual sequel to my earlier There Was No Jesus, There Is No God. Unsurprisingly, I argue that it is very reasonable to doubt Jesus' historical existence. The basic premise of the book is to examine the arguments of four scholars who have recently published significant works about this controversial issue. What follows is a brief summary of these analyses.
