    Unshakable Foundation

    This book is a very fine review of the evidence supporting the veracity, reliability, and historicity of the New Testament and the central truths of the gospel. This short handbook, written in laymen's language, has many applications and is valuable not only as a summary for theologians and bible school students, but also for adult classes and teenage studies in the church. The truthfulness of the faith we confess is not a matter of simple opinion, but rests upon unshakable foundations when all the evidence is evaluated with an honest mind. This book deserves a careful and a fair reading not only by Christians, but also by all those who seek integrity in their skepticism, agnosticism, or atheism. Dr. R.N. Folz Plymouth, MN

    The Christian faith is reasonalbe, historic, and trustworthy

    At the outset Dr. Foster rightly challenges one of the greatest misconceptions in the popular understanding of Christianity both among believers and non-believers-that Christianity is based purely on blind faith. Then using classic literary, historical, and legal methods he systematically whittles away at this commonly held bias, showing the Gospels and the Epistles to be reliable historical accounts and to contain the only logical explanation of the events of Christ's death, burial, and resurrection. A wonderfully concise and astute defense of Christian belief and worldview, this handbook serves as a powerful lesson (or reminder) that the New Testament is not a book of mythology, but is rather a collection of actual eyewitness accounts of events of the highest importance for humanity. Given that so many people are content to simply scoff, or are merely too intimidated to do the work and research necessary, Foster has done believers and non-believers a great service. The multitudes that have been swayed or bullied into seeing the Christian faith as something so fragile that it cannot stand up under serious scrutiny can now stand strong in the fact that it is the critic who has the burden of proof to bear.

    Excellent Defense of the Christian Faith

    Historians use certain tests to determine if a document is legitamately historical. Dr. Foster takes those same tests that are used on Plato, Chaucer, Homer, etc. and applies them to the New Testament. And guess what? The New Testament proves itself to be a superior ancient document. Further, Dr. Foster uses legal reasoning to demonstrate that the resurrection is the best answer to the known evidence surrounding Jesus' death and tomb. The concluding chapter is great as it lists 20 facts that are agreed upon by both Christians and atheists and then simply asks 'Which side is most consistent with these 20 given facts?'
