In the face of modern critical scholarship, which is steadily eroding the historical reliability of the Gospels and their presentation of Jesus, conservative writers have been making valiant attempts to re-establish confidence in the Christian record and doctrine. The most prominent of these, in popular exposure and commercial success, has been Lee Strobel, in his 1998 book 'The Case for Christ'. In that book, Lee Strobel, an ex-court journalist, conducts a series of 14 interviews with well-known conservative and evangelical scholars of the New Testament, such as Craig Blomberg, William Lane Craig and Gary Habermas, in an attempt to establish the reliability of the Gospel account and the truth of the Resurrection. Within the context of a scholarly critique, Earl Doherty, author of 'The Jesus Puzzle' takes quotations from those interviews and sets up his own dialogue with them, as though cross-examining Strobel and his witnesses in a courtroom before judge and jury. This makes for gripping reading, a strong atmosphere and an effective way to present the case in favour of a more rational and coherent view of the Christian record and the origins of Christianity. This book exposes the deficiencies, the fallacies, the selective and misleading use of evidence inherent in 'The Case for Christ', and offers more reasonable alternatives.

Did the Labour government improve people's lives? Are we healthier, wealthier or wiser; happier or safer than in 1997, when Labour came to power? If we are, how much do we have to thank Blair and Brown and their cabinets for? In The Verdict, Polly Toynbee and David Walker strip away spin, personality and political rhetoric to judge how our lives have changed. They consider Labour's lasting legacy and what its successors can learn from Labour's performance. Travelling the country, Toynbee and Walker compare Labour's promises with people's own accounts of what they experienced in recent years. They drop in on a Sure Start centre and visit schools, hospitals and colleges - and estates plagued by disorder - to ask: what different did Labour make? Combining sharp, witty writing, human stories and expert analysis, The Verdict charts Labour's often bewildering array of initiatives, projects and schemes. It questions how many depended on bubble finance and how many will be missed as recent public spending cuts take hold. From the early optimism of 'Things can only get better' to the misery of the financial crisis, Toynbee and Walker hand down the definitive judgement on Labour's record.

Fifty-six years after WW II, Germany again participated in military actions against Yugoslavia. By fictionally putting the protagonists of his book, German Chancellor Gerhard Schröder and Foreign Minister Joschka Fischer, on trial for war crimes, the author reveals the secret agenda of the German government using original quotations and a breathtaking collection of evidence. By strictly adhering to the German and international laws, the fiction becomes very real and may lead readers to question the legitimacy of their governments when declaring war in the name of the people. The book also reveals the propaganda tools used by those in power, which may appear not to be too different from the dark past of Germany's recent history.
