I have been recently reading through on the site above and have ordered the book. I am curious if anyone has found a good Christian rebuttal to this site. I am interested in a critical analysis of the subject complete with good source citations(as the site uses). I am mostly interested in the area of the site relating to Jesus's Life, but would like to hear of anyone who provided strong evidence that the site is inaccurate.

Edit: Also, I am trying to find the credentials of Paul N. Tobin, the author of the site, but have not had any luck. Google shows nothing and I can't really find anything on him in the site. Anyone know where I could look?

Edit2: Sorry, I don't think I was clear. I did not intend this to be a forum debate on the issues presented, I was mainly looking for existing critical analysis's of the views expressed in the website, largely the ones about Jesus's life and the authenticity of the Gospels. I was hoping someone more familiar with the subject could give me a good starting point for further research into the subject, ideally with a Christian slanted viewpoint so I could get both sides of the issue. Perhaps it would be best if this went in The Coffee House, but I am a little concerned that the topic will end up as a debate anyway.

We do not debate websites - You need to bring content here
See subtitle.

I am mostly interested in the area of the site relating to Jesus's Life...

I'm not sure if it will be enough to make the topic fly, but you might try bringing some of those points of interest into an additional message in this topic (don't edit message 1).

I'm going to promote this because even though the opening post inadequately outlines the topic, there has been a lot of interest in discussing Pascal's Wager in the past.
