Here is a link from a recent White Horse Inn program which deals with historical evidence from hostile witnesses of Christianity. These witnesses confirm much of what the Bible says historically. The importance isn't to confirm biblical truth but to show that many of the so called experts (Dan Brown, Bart Ehrman) running around today telling people that things didn't happen as the New Testament says are simply lying and there is much evidence to prove this.
This is a very interesting listen and I highly recommend it.
