About this title


In recent years, the historical Jesus has been described as everything from a "Jewish cynic" to a "spirit person" or "magician," to a social revolutionary, deluded prophet, or myth. The Gospels have been dismissed by Jesus Seminar and other critical scholars as legend or theological spin, and Christians as fools for believing them. In this fascinating work, scholar David Marshall (whose writings have been compared to C. S. Lewis and G. K. Chesterton) shows why the skeptics are wrong, and the Gospels right. Marshall describes a dozen critical errors Jesus skeptics commit. He then analyzes fifty traits that make the Gospels unique and persuasive. Finally, drawing on his study of Asian religions and literature, he surveys ancient myth, biography, and romance, and shows there is nothing quite like the New Testament writings in all the world.

About the Author:

David Marshall is director of Kuai Mu Institute for Christianity and World Cultures. He has written for magazines like Christianity Today, First Things, and Books and Culture, and speaks to a variety of audiences in countries around the Pacific Rim. Among other things, he has taught in Japanese universities, combatted the sex slave trade in Taiwan, and worked as a translator on board a Russian fishing vessel, where he learned that it's hard to sink a basket from the outside when the ship is swaying from side to side. David's previous books are True Son of Heaven: How Jesus Fulfills the Chinese Culture, and Jesus and the Religions of Man.
