In "Did Jesus Exist?" Bart D. Ehrman looks at the atheists, humanists, and conspiracy theorists who are asking about the existence of Jesus.

"I keep telling Christians, they don't have to be afraid of the truth," Ehrman told Religion News Service. "The same thing applies to atheists and humanists. It's not going to kill them to think Jesus really existed.
Ehrman will join The Daily Circuit Monday to discuss his book.
