Overview

Who is Jesus? What did he do? What did he say? -Are the traditional answer to these questions still to be trusted? - Did the early church and tradition "Christianize" Jesus? - Was Christianity built on clever conceptions of the church, or on the character and actions of an actual person? These and similar questions have come under scrutiny by a forum of biblical scholars called the Jesus Seminar. Their conclusions have been widely publicized in magazines such as Time and Newsweek. Jesus Under Fire challenges the methodology and findings of the Jesus Seminar, which generally clash with the biblical records. It examines the authenticity of the words, actions, miracles, and resurrection of Jesus, and presents compelling evidence for the traditional biblical teachings. Combining accessibility with scholarly depth, Jesus Under Fire helps readers judge for themselves whether the Jesus of the Bible is the Jesus of history, and whether the gospels' claim is valid that he is the only way to God.

This is a summary of NT scholarly work which supports the traditional view of Jesus, as opposed to some more radical work (i.e. The Jesus Seminar) which basically opposes most traditional views of Christ, His Life and Teachings. If you have ever come across some of the controversies generated by the more radical research, this book is a fine antidote in that it provides discussions in carefully edited chapters prsenting the evidence of more conservative (oh how I hate that word for what it has come to mean), viewpoints. While I do not agree with all that is in the book, I do feel it is an indespenible part of every minister's library!

A superb book! Intelligently researched and written! This book offers strong evidence in proving the faithfulness and validity of the bible and its record of the true Jesus of history!

The Jesus Seminar has been much hyped by the liberal media. But its rationalistic fairy tales are masquerading as facts. This book helps the reader see that the Jesus Seminar is completely unsound as it tries to deny the authenticity of the teachings and actions of Jesus Christ. Must reading!
