Robert M. Price is an influential American scholar of Christianity, known best to a wider audience for his intelligent debating style. Many of his debates with various other scholars are still available on YouTube. He also hosts a great podcast called The Bible Geek.
Dr. Price is one of the best-known proponents of the “Christ myth theory”, the theory that there never was an actual, physical person named Jesus of Nazareth.
In addition to his seemingly endless knowledge on the Bible, he is a scholar of the works of H.P. Lovecraft.
Dr. Price’s books include:
- Incredible Shrinking Son of Man
- Bart Ehrman Interpreted
- Deconstructing Jesus
- Blaming Jesus for Jehovah
