4.6 out of 5 stars

on 24 June 2011
I am surprised at how much I enjoyed this book. It is very academic, well referenced and dispassionate. But it is also well written and clear, although the information is dense.

Basically it is putting logical arguments against some of the main points of liberal theology, particularly those put forward by the 'Jesus seminar'

It shows that this seminar ignores much investigation into the Gospels and that it often selects information based on its own agendas. In particular it questions the idea that some actions or sayings of Jesus should be ignored or assumed to be false and others thought genuine. It provides a coherent argument that they can be considered genuine... also on other points e.g. the resurrection and miracles.

I would say that it would be really useful to anyone beginning theology education or just someone who wants to look into these issues a bit more deeply.

Basically it shows that having an evangelical theology is not 'irrational' or ignoring facts. I found it really interesting.

This book is well written and contains lots of information in support of the biblical authenticity of Jesus Christ.
It's certainly more academic than devotional, but accomplishes it's purpose of effectively refuting the claims and exposing the agenda of the Jesus Seminar. The contributing authors are well respected and well informed. Especially interesting and helpful is chapter 6, "Did Jesus Rise from the Dead," written by William Lane Craig.

Jesus Under Fire: Modern Scholarship Reinvents the Historical Jesus Jesus of Nazareth has come under fire since the time that He walked this earth some 2,000 years ago. Today there are those who follow Jesus, accepting Him as the Way, the Truth and the Life. Others ignore Him, and others again attack Him and what the Bible has to say about Him.

In this age Jesus is still under fire, and one group at the forefront of the attack on Him is known as `The Jesus Seminar'. Faith Under Fire is a refutation of the claims of this group.

The content is excellent, but the quality and size of the print is poor. In an age when people spend many hours looking at computer screens, to tackle a book then with such a small font size can be somewhat off-putting. Not only is the font size small but the pages look as though they have been photocopied rather than printed. Zondervan streamlined the process in record time to get the book out quickly. Unfortunately, in my opinion the quality has suffered. I award the book with 5 stars because of the content and recommend the book for those who are concerned about the attacks on Jesus Christ and who want to consider the evidence objectively.
