Did Jesus really do miracles? Did he die on the cross? How was he born? Did he really exist? Carsten Peter Thiede considers some difficult questions in Jesus, Man or Myth? (Lion £6.99 (£6.30); 0-7459-5147-3). He also looks at The Emmaus Mystery: discovering evidence for the risen Christ, putting forward new evidence for his belief that Emmaus is not at any of the three traditionally suggested sites, but is a "leafy suburb of Jerusalem" (Continuum, £19.99 (£17.99); 0-8264-6797-0)
