    Seven Reasons Why You Can Trust the Bible by Erwin W. Lutzer (EncompassedRunner)
    EncompassedRunner: Both books are slim apologetics books that argue for trustworthiness of aspects of the Christian faith, McDowell's classic strengthens one's beliefs in the claims of Jesus, while Lutzer's book defends the claims of the Bible. Both books are good for new believers or for family members of new believers who are curious to know about their new faith.… (more)

Two books in one
  CornerstoneCS | Jan 26, 2018 |
With almost ten million copies in print, More Than a Carpenter continues to be the most powerful evangelism tool worldwide. Josh McDowell's timeless examination of the true nature of Christ and his impact on our lives is one of the best-selling Christian books ever. Written by a former skeptic of Christianity, it is a hard-hitting book for those who doubt Jesus' deity and his purpose.

De Bijbel levert overtuigende bewijzen voor de goddelijkheid van Jezus Christus. Van de drie mogelijkheden: Jezus was een geestezieke, een leugenaar of God zelf, blijft alleen de laatste over. Althans, dat probeert de auteur, medewerker van de Amerikaanse evangelisatie-organisatie Campus Crusade for Christ, in dit boekje aan te tonen. Een veelheid van vooral nieuwtestamentische bijbelcitaten en aanhalingen van andere auteurs moet zijn betoog kracht bij zetten. Was Jezus echt de Messias? Is Hij echt uit de doden opgestaan? Antwoord: ja. Een persoonlijk getuigenis van de auteur en aanwijzingen voor de beginnende christen sluiten deze 3e druk af (pp. 91-95). Dit is de enige wijziging t.o.v. de voorgaande druk. Het populaire boekje hoort thuis in de Amerikaanse ‘revival’-literatuur en is geschreven voor al diegenen die worstelen met de (vermeende) tegenspraken tussen wetenschappelijke inzichten en bijbels geloof in de goddelijkheid en opstanding van Jezus Christus.

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0842345523, Paperback)

Since its release, More Than a Carpenter has been challenging readers to ask the question, "Who is Jesus?" Author and renowned speaker Josh McDowell acknowledges that while the topic of God is widely accepted, the name of Jesus often causes irritation. "Why don't the names of Buddha, Mohammed, Confucius offend people? The reason is that these others didn't claim to be God, but Jesus did." By addressing questions about scientific and historical evidence, the validity of the Bible, and proofs of the resurrection, McDowell helps the reader come to an informed and intelligent decision about whether Jesus was a liar, a lunatic, or the Lord. This short, 128-page gem does not employ fancy theological words, forsaking the layman, but reads more like an intimate research document laying out the facts with veracious accuracy, from reliable sources ranging from secular scientists to conservative seminarians. A skeptic himself for many years, McDowell always believed that Christians were "out of their minds" but now insists that "never has an individual been called upon to commit intellectual suicide in trusting Christ as Savior and Lord." McDowell adeptly articulates fundamental answers to poignant questions that cause the skeptic to consider whether Jesus was a liar causing countless martyrs to die in his wake, a lunatic deserving death, or actually the Lord of the universe. --Jill Heatherly
