Jesus of Nazareth receives no lack of attention. It seems that everyone wants his endorsement, including Muslims, Hindus, Jews, as well as Christians of every stripe. However, what can be known about the founder of Christianity? When faith collides with history, what is left? What can we know about Jesus' birth, life, death, and resurrection? Did he actually perform miracles or were the first century authors of the New Testament Gospels naive and gullible? What are the most trustworthy sources that historians use to construct their historical portraits of Jesus? Were the earliest sources composed or inspired by eyewitnesses of Jesus' ministry? Does archaeology help us to understand his world and teachings in a fresh way? The Wrong Jesus sheds light on these very questions and many more.
This book was written for non-experts looking for an easy-to-read yet informed study of the historical Jesus. College students, lay-people, and anyone interested in Christianity's founder will benefit from reading The Wrong Jesus. Each chapter ends with a list of recommended reading for further exploration and discussion questions for small group or individual study.
The Wrong Jesus utilizes the best of contemporary "conservative" and "liberal" scholarship in order to present a detailed discription of the most important aspects of the life of Jesus. Discover for yourself where faith and history collide. It just might change everything.View Endorsements Watch Video
