The Apologetics of Jesus

Norman L Geisler

The Apologetics of Jesus

Norman L Geisler

$32.99

Paperback
Apologetics books abound, but how did Jesus defend the faith? The Apologetics of Jesus presents the Savior at his convincing best. The most tentative Christian - or belligerent skeptic - will find meaty arguments for the godhead of Christ through his parables, prophecies, and more. This hard-hitting resource shows how Christ led the curious to commitment.

^^In this original book, readers will find a new way of looking at the message and miracles of Christ and will be revived by the example of Christ's caring approach to dealing with doubters. Recommended for both laypeople and ministry leaders alike.



- Publisher "There has been considerable debate over the years as to whether or not apologetics is biblical and, if it is, what method is most consistent with Scripture. In this delightful little book, Geisler and Zukeran get right to the heart of the matter and examine the apologetic teaching, methods, and practices of Jesus himself. Along the way, they present a rich study of the multifaceted nature of Jesus' use of apologetics. As a result, we are treated to a steady stream of practical application that we would all be wise to employ."--J. P. Moreland, Distinguished Professor of Philosophy, Talbot School of Theology"Geisler and Zukeran have written one of the most important books on apologetics. Few realize that apologetics was a key component in the ministry of Christ. Through this landmark work, you will understand in a new way the genius and power of the arguments Christ made in his teachings and his defense."--Josh D. McDowell, author and speaker"The Apologetics of Jesus explores the perfect model of Christ's life to provide powerful examples of how to apply practical apologetics in today's postmodern culture. Thoroughly biblical and extremely practical, their words offer fresh discoveries and helpful information for anyone who desires to follow the ways of Jesus to share truth in everyday life."--John Ankerberg, host of The John Ankerberg Show"A real marvel regarding apologetics texts is that Jesus' own methodology and techniques are addressed so seldom. Even more rarely are Jesus' dialogues, parables, and discourses analyzed for their apologetic value. This scarcity has now been remedied. Geisler and Zukeran address these and a host of other topics regarding Jesus' stance, filling the gaps not found elsewhere. The result is a delightfully readable volume that will assist the reader in broadening their own approach."--Gary R. Habermas, Distinguished Research Professor and Chair, department of philosophy and theology, Liberty University"This unique, thought-provoking book demonstrates the rich variety of creative ways Jesus utilized apologetics during his ministry. By the time you finish the book, you'll be equipped to model the greatest Apologist who ever lived."--Ron Rhodes, president, Reasoning from the Scriptures Ministries"What a brilliant idea! That Jesus himself should become our model for defending the faith! Since he spent his entire ministry giving a defense of who he was and why he came, we can quite naturally learn from how he himself did it! This book will give us strategic insight as to how we can also defend him in an age when the same objections are raised against him and his mission."--Dr. Erwin Lutzer, Moody Church, Chicago

Genuinely important
5 stars By JT, Dec 02 2012
There are quite a few Christians who would argue that using logic to "defend" Christianity is vile and offensive. Geisler and Zukeran would beg to differ. They go so far as to claim that Jesus Himself was a master apologist, and that we should follow His example, and the argument they put forward to support this view is highly compelling. Reading this book, you'll learn to appreciate Jesus more as you learn about Him using reason (and responding to poor reason) and how you can, too! Essential reading for anyone unsure about the "to defend or not to defend" debate. I'm sure you'll be convinced.
