The New Testament has had a profound impact on Western society. But what do we actually know about its evolution? In what context did the texts originate? Who was Jesus, and how did he become the 'Son of God'? Were the four evangelists reliable witnesses? Why are there so many inconsistencies and contradictions in the New Testament? Unbelievable: The Gospel Texts in Narrative Tradition and Historical Context. explores the traditions and historical reality behind the New Testament, shedding a whole new light on the biblical stories. This book is aimed at interested readers who want to learn how the New Testament came into being, and how it has moulded our societies. Although it is based on sound scholarly research, Unbelievable seeks primarily to appeal to a broad audience. Its style and clear language enable the reader to gain insight into the historical and literary contexts from which these texts emerged, and how they have shaped all Western cultures.
