I'm about two-thirds of the way through the book. I've also exchanged a few emails with Mr. Atwill. He denies that the Jesus of the 30's A.D. and the Paul that followed shortly thereafter existed, which is not a reasonable conclusion, but the links he makes betweeen the writings of Josephus and the Gospels are simply astounding. I'll post more comments when I'm done with the entire book.
