Who Is Jesus?: Linking the Historical Jesus with the Christ of Faith by Darrell L Bock

BockWhoisJesus

IS JESUS WHO HE SAID HE WAS? Some say he was just a man; others claim he was the Son of God. Historian Darrell Bock tests the authenticity of Jesus’ claims against the rules of history to find out if he truly is the Christ of Faith.

This reader-friendly book examines twelve events, sayings, and teachings of Jesus, using ten well-accepted historical rules. Pull up a chair, engage in the conversation, and discover how fascinating the discussion of the historical Jesus can be.

This was quite the easy read at only 214 pages. The overcoming of objections with reason and with historical data and writings of others who brought many things into the cultural context that was needed in order for anyone, including those who are apologetically & evangelically minded. We each, as followers of the Christ have an obligation to strengthen our faith through reason and historically based research. It is through this method that we can be better prepared to “give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have.” (1 Peter 3:15 NIV)

Godspeed & Good Reads!
