The Jesus Inquest..
The author of this book Charles Foster really went out his way in coming up with the argument on for and against the resurrection of Jesus. It is an interesting style of writing. Top marks for that.
Chapters focus on where the info came from, whether or not Jesus actually died, where or how he was buried, the hardship of answering about the empty tomb, then His resurrection appearances. One by one, the “atheist” (known as “X”) presents every possible explanation for the story besides the Christian view, and the “Christian” voice (known as “Y”) attempts to refute X’s arguments and give force to the Christian story.
At the end of the day, I kind of felt that it is up to the individuals on whether the resurrection did happened or not.
In my opinion I give this book a rating 4 out of 5.
I received this book free from Thomas Nelson Publishers as part of their Booksneeze bloggers program. I was not asked to write a positive review and thus, the book review is 100% my own opinion.
