Product Description

Review

"Reinventing Jesus cuts through the rhetoric of extreme doubt to reveal the profound credibility of historic Christianity. Meticulously researched yet eminently readable, this book invites a wide audience to take a firsthand look at the primary evidence for Christianity's origins. Reinventing Jesus shows believers that it's okay to think hard about Christianity, and shows hard thinkers that it's okay to believe. While there are other books being written to defend the historical Jesus of the New Testament, and the authenticity and trustworthiness of the New Testament writings, Reinventing Jesus is one of the better ones read by this reviewer. The authors cover such a breath of material that it is hard to find one of similar value in terms of thoroughness and argumentation. I highly recommend this work."--Ray Hammond"ChristianBookPreviews.com" (08/01/2006)

Having first read Bart Ehrman's Jesus Interrupted, it was refreshing and helpful to read a more balanced analysis. Novices to the historical-critical method might wonder if Ehrman, a comtemporary skeptic, has gone too far. Well, he has. Whilst dealing with difficult textual issues head on, Komoszewski shows that the life, death and resurrection of Jesus are powerfully and reliably attested to in the historical record. There is no need or excuse for Christian anarchy. The real Jesus is the living Son of God.

My thanks to Tim Hawthorn for his earlier review of this book, which persuaded me to buy it after I had read Craig Evans' useful volume, 'Fabricating Jesus'.

Just today, I have read a review in the Saturday Telegraph of Richard Dawkins' recent Channel 4 programme on Darwin. The reviewer, himself an atheist, casually slips in a comment about the 'many mistakes/inaccuracies' in the Bible. These kinds of ideas float around in a world of their own, unattached to the real one of historical fact and known data - but due to constant repetition they achieve their purpose: a general acceptability in the public arena.

'Reinventing Jesus' deals with many of these ideas - tackling head-on such issues as (i) the composition of the Canon, (ii) those 'other' books which did not make it into the New Testament, but which Dan Brown depends so heavily on for 'The DaVinci Code', (iii) the self-serving proclamations of 'The Jesus Seminar', (iv) the myths about Christianity 'borrowing' from other world religions.

The authors survey a great deal of material in this book. It is pithily written, and bang up to date. A great read for Christians who simply want to understand the factual background to the world's greatest book - and, I would suspect, something of a challenge for those who base their unbelief on the notion that the Bible is unreliable and suspect. It's a book I'm going to keep on my shelf and come back to time and time again.

If you prefer the facts to fiction this is the book for you.

It always amazes me that people can get so many basic, simple facts wrong. For example, some people 'claim' there are no manuscripts that predate the 4th century, yet there are a MINIMUM of 48 (and possibly nearer 60) that date back to the 2nd century - a simple matter of counting (see Institute for New Testament Textual Research INTF - not a 'fundamentalist' site by any means!!). The Ashmolean Museum in Oxford alone holds 12+ such documents.
If you're genuinely interested in the truth read this book

Ideal for anyone who needs help getting the scholarly answers to modern attacks in Christology or against the veracity of the Bible from those whose Theological training goes as far as a Dan Brown novel. These top scholars have made these facts very readable and applicable. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK
