The Jesus Tomb: Is it Fact or Fiction? Scholars Chime In
Sausa, Don

Fort Myers, Fla.: Vision, 2007 pp. vi + 170. $21.95

Description: On February 2007, James Cameron, the Academy Award-winning director for Titanic, announced his team has found the missing tomb of Jesus Christ; however, they bypassed academic review. In The Jesus Tomb: Is It Fact or Fiction? Scholars Chime In, Don Sausa reviews Cameron's claims through biblical, historic, and scientific analysis. By reviewing the evidence and interviewing biblical scholars, archaeologists, and DNA experts, Sausa answers the most important question about this discovery--is it fact or fiction?

Subjects: Methods, Historical Approaches, History, Archaeology
