The Real Jesus: Books

There are many good (and many not so good) books available on Jesus. Here are the ones I am using for the teaching series on The Real Jesus. They fall into two categories. First, books that deal with the life of Christ or his teachings at a popular level, meaning they are for the average person who doesn't need to have a seminary degree. The second list is for students and those looking for something more substantial to prove the reliability of the Gospels and the life of Christ.
