I recommend this well written book by a great author. Whether you are a Christian or a sceptic, Josh McDowell makes some points that make you really think about your belief - or lack of belief. Even though I'm a Christian, I felt closer to Jesus than ever before after reading Josh McDowell's book. The book is deep - and at times I had to go back and re-read.

Comprehensive, sound and thought provoking. It's beautiful and compeling. Presents the facts and leaves the rest to the reader. What will you decide?

"more thean a carpenter" is a small and inexpenive book and gives proof of the reserection of Jesus Christ. the arthur josh mcdowell was an atheist and set out to prove christianity wrong and ended up from his research proving the reserection of Jesus christ to be factual. this little bestseller presents some simple facts such as many witness`s that were there and the fasinating facts about the empty tomb and other presentations that the writer has reserched and documented to prove the reserection of christ and challenge the critics. this book has been up dated. great gift idea for a friend or family member. or Bible study.

I read this book many years ago, before the update. I was captivated by the title, More Than a Carpenter. I knew from the title that it was about Jesus. I was prompted to buy it and of course I read it and my heart was warmed by what I read. It confirmed what I knew about our Lord, and encouraged my mind and my thinking. I was reading another book about Jesus, and my mind went to this book. So, I bought the updated version. I just completed it. It reaffirmed for me all that I knew and have read in God's Word. I recommend this book for all who have an inkling about Jesus, yet want and need to know more. It finds no fault, just presents the facts and the evidence. Please don't hesistate. Buy it now!

My husband was an agnostic who had turned away from Christ....until he read this book. Shortly after finishing this amazing book, he accepted Jesus as his Lord and Savior. This book is simple to read, straightforward in its approach, and unbelievably powerful. I challenge anyone to read this book and NOT be convinced that Jesus is the Son of God. If you are interested in facts and 'proof', please read this. It will change your life!

Back in my junior college days, I read this book in my IVCF group. It was a fun, easy read. McDowell examines the person of Jesus, concluding that he is God incarnate. This conclusion is based on scriptual data, both from the OT and NT. The fact that Jesus did miracles, forgave sins, claimed to be God, and was resurrected from the dead are all evidence of his divinity. This makes Jesus different from other religious leaders of the world and thus superior and worthy of worship. This is an important book. It's frequently cited as the book that 'turned people on to Jesus' it also influenced other apologists as they wrote books in defence of Jesus and His resurrection. Although McDowells's book is a little dated, it's a good place to begin to learn about Jesus, as well as the scriptual data used to argue for a divine Jesus. Also recommended 'Jesus: Two Visions' by Marcus Borg and N.T. Wright.'

More Than a Carpenter Author: Josh McDowell This book is mainly about the Christian faith. The author talks about his understanding of some scriptures and convinces the reader that Jesus really did exist without `shoving religion down our throats.¿ While some authors just try to prove it to you, Josh shows you the facts and lets you decide if what you see if what you choose to believe. I think Josh wrote and excellent book. Well I guess I should just start off by thanking good ole Josh for writing such an understandable book. The words he was written in the pages have heavy meanings and can sway your thoughts about Jesus. He is a very convincing writer and uses good word choice to make his points clear. He doesn¿t `beat around the bush¿ and go off topic, he gets straight to the point, which is a nice change from the normal writing styles. Now all though he was straight to the point, it eventually turned repetitive. I always look for the author¿s opinion when I am reading. It helps me understand the book¿s purpose. He lays out the facts but doesn¿t give his own thoughts. Facts are nice but the truth is, if I wanted any more facts¿I would be reading the BIBLE. I want to end this with a good word so here it is, I enjoyed the book and hope you all read it, everyone can learn something from it.

I first read Josh McDowell¿s 'More Than A Carpenter' when I was a freshman in college. Someone had given me the book, and although I was already a committed Christian, it literally blew me away with the simultaneous simplicity and depth of its arguments on behalf of Jesus Christ. Like a prosecutor laying out his case, McDowell presents a series of facts about Jesus of Nazareth and attempts to uncover the truth about his life. Jesus claimed to be God himself. So either Jesus was a liar, a lunatic, or the Lord. McDowell performs brilliantly in putting forward his case that Jesus was and is Lord. Few books better illustrate that believing in Christ is NOT a matter of 'blind faith', but rather part of an intellectual exercise. Faith is a matter of believing in and trusting in the facts that are presented. (i.e., Are the words of Jesus trustworthy?) For most objective readers of McDowell¿s book, the answer will be a resounding yes... >>> Britt Gillette Author of 'Conquest of Paradise: An End-Times Nano-Thriller'

This is one of the best books I've ever read. The author's writing is educated and informative. He leaves nothing to speculation, and debunks some of the currently popular lies about Christianity.

I read this book about two years after becoming a Christian. Mcdowell has a way of writing in everyday words, but doesn't waste time - every sentence has solid useful information. A person could probably read this book in 45 minutes, but there is so much that if you read the book 100 times, you would still learn something new each time. A must-read for anybody, regardless of your level of Bible knowledge.

I grew up in a Christian home, but did not really 'own' my beliefs until I read 'More Than a Carpenter' during my sophomore year in college. It changed my life. This well-written, engaging, enlightening book gave simple but solid evidence of the Bible's reliability, Christ's identity and my purpose on this planet as a child of God. There is not a Christian, skeptic or other that would not benefit from reading this book. It takes guts to question what you believe, and this book's evidence for the truth of Christianity is impenetrable.

I have read More Then A Carpenter by Josh McDowell, I felt this book shed alot of truth. I read this book to see the truth behind christanity was it a valid religion or not and it proved to me it was.

Josh used to be a guy who hated Christians and persecuted them as 'mindless fools'. He set out to rip apart the Bible as untrue, and in the process -- Proved to himself and the world, that it was indeed true AND the inspired Word of God. This book is easy to understand and good for even the hardest and most subborn skeptic. It provides hard, irrefutable evidence from with inside the Bible as well as outside secular sources. This book is also an excellent resource for EVERY Christian... It brings out many simple, yet profound points to build your faith and help you share the Gospel more simply with others. I encourage EVERYONE, regardless of who they are or what they believe to read this book and see for themselves the powerful, yet simple plan God has lovingly laid out for humanity.
