About "The Truth About Jesus"

TC94D -NEW!Paul BarnettA compelling analysis showing that the New Testament accountof Jesus is the correct one, for thoughtful enquirers.
- Koorong

Paul Barnetts classic book presenting the evidence for Jesus - his historical existence, his deity, his resurrection and for the historical reliability of the Gospels. The book ends with a challenge to accept the facts and come to a conviction about Jesus.
- Publisher

This book gathers and analyses the authenticity and reliability of the contemporary evidence for the birth, life, death and resurrection of Jesus. Facing a thin-looking plank across a deep gorge, people look for assurance that it will hold before stepping on to it. So, too, people facing the Christian summons to repent, believe in Christ, and become a new person, naturally want to be sure of the facts about Jesus before they commit themselves. Paul Barnett is gentle, patient, shrewd and through analysis shows that the case for accepting the New Testament account of Jesus is overwhelmingly strong. Honest seekers, thoughtful enquirers, and disoriented doubters will find this an invaluable book. The scholarship is solid, and the conclusions compelling. - James Packer, Professor of Theology, Regent College, Vancouver, Canada; This is another book from the accomplished historian and author, Dr. Paul Barnett. In it he gathers and analyses the authenticity and reliability of the contemporary evidence for the birth, life, death and resurrection. He does not run from reality but goes to the very heart of the truth. Here is history made plain. This is an excellent book for everyone - sceptic, enquirer, or believer. - Michael Orpwood QC, Deputy Parliamentary Counsel, NSW
