Description

Much can be said about history's effects on the contemporary world; too much to be adequately covered in one book. But that doesn't stop Thomas Verenna from giving his readers a substantial glimpse of the depth and breadth of the discussion. In this collection of essays, Thomas takes on questions ranging from the existence of 'Biblical Israel' to the origins of ghost stories. What influence did Hellenistic and Roman educations have on the authors of the Gospels? How far back can we trace the written record of "haunted houses"? Why are there four Gospel accounts instead of one? Does it matter if Jesus Christ existed historically? Thomas investigates all of these questions and more in this thought provoking, engaging, and refreshingly honest collection.
