FINDING THE REAL JESUS
A GUIDE FOR CURIOUS CHRISTIANS AND SKEPTICAL SEEKERS
The historical picture of Jesus has come under a variety of withering attacks in recent years. But how credible are the critics and the alternatives they offer? Finding the Real Jesus provides informed responses to today’s most potent arguments against the Jesus of Christianity.
Who was Jesus—really?
For centuries, the Christian church has taught that Jesus is the divine Son of God, crucified for sinners and raised from the dead. In recent years, however, that picture of Jesus has come under widely publicized attack from sources ranging from critical scholars to Internet pundits to popular historians and others. The new portraits of Jesus seem persuasive. You can’t help but wonder … Did Christianity merely copy its beliefs from earlier mythology? Did the church suppress alternate gospels? Did Jesus never die on the cross or rise from the dead for sinners? Is the New Testament hopelessly riddled with errors?
New York Times bestselling author Lee Strobel helps you separate truth from media hype, sound scholarship from bias, and fact from speculation. Digging below the surface, this book provides credible, informed answers to today’s most pressing questions about Jesus.
