    1. The book in itself is a fascinating piece of literature that very clearly and specifically lays out the evidence for the reliability of the New Testament. Barnett leads the reader through each of the Gospels, the letters of Paul, and the Acts of the Apostles, each time providing historical and factual evidence for the reliability of the texts. Barnett wrote his book as to the skeptical unbeliever. He relied solely on facts and history to prove the reliability of the New Testament and kept faith [...]

    2. Recommended by Byron Borger. Barnett does a nice job of making the conversation accessible, though at times I feel like he compromises what should/can be more complex aspects.

    3. Paul Barnett’s approach is a primarily historical approach.

Wouldn't recommend just because there are better re [...]

    5. Overall a descent book, but lacking in detail at points and too much detail in unnecessary points. Almost like a few chapters were added in to fill out the book

    6. Read for Contemporary Christian Belief. Fairly good, really. Addresses whether or not the NT is trustworthy.
