4.0 out of 5 stars The answer is, 'Yes.', 8 Sep 2009
This review is from: Can We Trust the Gospels? (Paperback)
Anyone who has read Bart Ehrman's "Misquoting Jesus" should read this book which gives the alternative view. The key chapter is Chapter 2, which explains how comparison of Gospel manuscripts and text-criticism supports rather than weakens the view that we do know what the original Gospels actually contained.

The main body of the book discusses the questions that have to be asked about the Gospels: who were the authors and what were their sources? did early Christian oral tradition pass down the truth about Jesus accurately? are they historically accurate and supported by secular history and archaeology? what about Jesus' miracles? did the Gospel writers invent sayings of Jesus that fitted their own Christian agendas?

Roberts concludes that we can trust the Gospels as giving historically accurate information about what Jesus did and said. This is a very good introduction for the interested layperson, whether Christian, anti-Christian or agnostic. It provides a useful counter-balance to the attacks on the reliability of the Gospels which tend to receive media publicity.
