Is Jesus Just a Legend?: A Socratic Dialogue
These dialogues aren’t meant to cover every aspect of, or every objection to, each issue discussed. There’s more that could be said, obviously.

People say stuff. Stuff they’ve read in Hallmark cards, heard in movies, or from some “spiritual” aunt. It’s the sort of stuff that’s become cliche and to which, they tell me, the proper social response is a head nod and a ‘mmmmm’ sound of agreement.
