The aim of this page is to present arguments for and against the historicity of the New Testament documents. It contains articles written by myself and links to other Web sites which are relevant. It will always be my policy to provide space for people who do not agree with the views I express (subject to availability of space). If you want to write a specific rebuttal of anything on this page, please provide a URL that I can link to, or, failing that, email me and I will put your article on the page.
