N.T. Wright has written an excellent work entitled <B> The New Testament
and the People of God <b>. by Fortress Press. This comprehensive work contains
the latest material concerning the historicity of the events of early
Christianity as well as literary criticism and possible solutions. His history
of the first Christian century is thorough and enlightening. I recommend it
