4.0 out of 5 stars Run for the hills - Only kidding, 1 Nov. 2011
This is a great little book. Very easy to read and explains the humanist approach to morality and ethics in everyday life. The author has plenty of situations in which her advice is to 'run for the hills', which is quite a nice running gag (no pun intended). It's aimed at the younger reader (teen to early adulthood), arming them with a simple philosophy for leading a happy life full of meaningful experiences, without getting hurt, or hurting others along the way. But there's plenty left over too for us older readers.

4.0 out of 5 stars Intelligent analysis of the gospel tradition, 24 May 2011
This is an excellent book. It goes through many different aspects and assumptions about Jesus and looks for evidence firstly in the gospels and often through extra-biblical sources. Robert Price starts out by defining the historical method and his criteria for determining whether something is likely to be historical fact or myth. He then dismantles many of the best known stories about Jesus in the gospels. The final - very short - chapter puts the final nail in the cross as it were, and ties everything up very nicely. What makes this book quite hard work to read is that you really have to have a copy of the bible with you whilst reading it, because although he does quote a great many passages in the book, he simply cites many others and you will have to look them up for yourself. I understand why he's done this, as it would take up far too much room, but you should be aware that you will feel the need to check his facts at various points, and this takes time. It's still a brilliant book though.
