The Jesus Inuest

The Jesus Inuest characters Õ 107 Iblical criticism and much providing an unbiased examination of the facts of the case A practicing trial attorney and University of Oxford academic Charles Foster vigorously argues both sides of the issue presenting information in compelling courtroom style and leaving no hard uestion unaddressed The Jesus Inuest gives readers the tools necessary to debate the most remarkable and controversial event of world history a debate so crucial and fascinating it cannot be ignore The ages old controversy of whether Jesus Christ truly died on the cross was buried and resurrected is looked at through the eyes of a attorney with both sides given complete consideration in The Jesus Inuest The Case For And Against The Resurrection Of The Christ by Charles Foster Charles Foster a lawyer explorer and medical ethics professor at the University of Oxford has fairly treated both sides of this age old uestion that so many of us ask ourselves Could It Be True or Was It All A HoaxUsing a complete resources guide from historical records and archeological discoveries made recently Charles Foster has examined all the facts in the minutest detail and come up with his own conclusion He may be the only man who could have treated both sides euallyI will say that The Jesus Inuest is not an easy book to read no matter what side of the fence you claim to support but that is the nature of reading material from an attorney The flow tends to go back and forth and I would have preferred that the illustrations and photos were aligned with the topics they were discussing rather than in the center of the book but alas that was not the caseI myself found the book fascinating to read and learned a few things that I was not aware of Of course with a topic of this explosive nature you are sure to have new claims come to the forefront all the time As a believer I didn t need to read it but as a believer I wanted to read all I can get my hands on as well For those who aren t believers you may find some interesting facts reside within these pages that may or may not change your mind The point is to be aware of everything before you make a claim on a position in one way or another The Jesus Inuest will give you that knowledge and I hope you ll give it a serious consideration to reading what s contained within these wonderful pagesI would love to go along with him on one of his many research uests How exciting that would be You ll find The Jesus Inuest The Case For And Against The Resurrection Of The Christ by Charles Foster Thomas Nelson Publishers at or at Barnes Noble

The Jesus Inuest characters Õ 107 Charles Foster thought he knew the familiar story of the resurrection of Jesus He thought Christianity rested on sound historical foundationsBut could he be wrong Could Christianity be built on a terrible mistake or downright lieAs nagging doubts began to surface Foster turned to countless Christian books to find comfort and proof But all he found were uestions What began as a personal uest for reassurance uickly turned into an in depth examination of the most astounding But if there is no resurrection of the dead neither hath Christ been raised and if Christ hath not been raised then is our preaching vain your faith also is vain 1 Corinthians 1513 14Throughout its existence Christianity has been founded upon the death and resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth If Jesus did not die andor was not raised from the dead Christianity is just another fiction But if Jesus did die and He was raised from the dead then the claim that Jesus is Lord and that we ought to serve Him must be taken very seriously Therefore from the beginning until now the validity of the claims of Jesus death and resurrection have never lacked a challengerCharles Foster enters this fray with The Jesus Inuest The Case For and Against the Resurrection of the Christ Foster an English jurist attempts to use the same rigorous mode of inuiry that is used before a court in order to weigh the arguments for and against the death and resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth The end result is one of the most comprehensive yet understandable analyses of the current state of arguments for and against Jesus death and resurrectionArguments are made against the claims of Christianity through the guise of X the Christian response is presented though the guise of Y The two sides are lined up against each other on whether Jesus really died on the cross or not how Jesus was buried the matter of the empty tomb the post resurrection appearances of Jesus whether the early church believed in Jesus physical and bodily resurrection and the potential sources for the story of the resurrection Appendices include further examinations into Jesus cause of death the Shroud of Turin statistical analyses and the Jesus Family Tomb and the text of the Gospel of Peter Foster wonders if he puts the arguments of X forcefully enough as a believer sympathetic to Y I nevertheless believe that he has X and his character fairly well presented The arguments presented are about as well done as can be under the circumstances The presentation of the evidence goes a long way to show just how weak the case against Jesus death and resurrection is one might be able to make a few challenges regarding the way the story is presented in the New Testament but no credible serious and sensible counter explanation can be provided to explain the emergence of the beliefs surrounding Jesus of Nazareth as the crucified and risen Son of God One must take care to remember that X is presented as a hot mess Foster is providing all kinds of counter arguments most of them inconsistent with each other One does not do well to see the inconsistencies and thus write X off entirely My one criticism of the book would be the fact that X will present the sensationalistic as well as the standard challenges to the Christian narrative without a whole lot of clear demarcation between the two The claims of Holy Blood Holy Grail or The Jesus Family Tomb do not belong in the same category as arguments about the vinegar as an opiate leading to a coma or arguments about the possibility of the wrong tomb not that the latter are inherently any accurate but they are not as ridiculous Considering the author s purpose I don t know how it could be better handled but I thought it was worth noting While Foster never comes out and says where he ultimately stands his sympathies with Y are clear enough as well they should be The Jesus Inuest is an excellent resource for everyone as it provides a good introduction to where the disputes about Jesus death and resurrection have led and presents the arguments reasonably well book received as part of early review program

The Jesus Inuest characters Õ 107 Historical claim of all time He crawled through Jerusalem tombs dusty libraries and the recesses of his own mind in search of an answer He turned the war in his head the war between faith and doubt into this heated no holds barred debate which presents the case both for and against the resurrection of Jesus The Jesus Inuest takes you through medical evidence Jewish burial practices archaeological hypotheses maps ancient artifacts the canonical and non canonical gospels b As Easter approaches the thoughts of many Christian and non Christian alike naturally turn to Christ s resurrection The Jesus Inuest The Case For and Against the Resurrection of the Christ is an intriguing read for allThe author Charles Foster a barrister trial lawyer and tutor of medical ethics at Oxford University was dissatisfied with the books on the subject of Christ s resurrection available For the most part he didn t find their arguments adeuate He wanted to ask the tough uestions and not gloss over the difficulties with the Gospel accounts and historical evidence so he decided to do his own investigation and write a book that tackled those issues head onUsing a courtroom format Foster presents the case both for and against the resurrection First X presents the case against then Y presents the case for Each argument is cross referenced to the opposing argument so you can uickly turn to see the corresponding evidence for each side He chose to use this format rather than inviting another person to represent the opposing case so that he could provide a complete survey of the evidence As he puts itthere is no one who believes every single one of the possible objections to the Christian case It is not logically possible No one can believe for instance both that Jesus survived the cross and walked to India and that he died in Jerusalem and was eaten by jackals on the municipal garbage tip xiiBy doing it this way he s able to explore multiple different objections and theories He feels confident that he competently represented the evidence against the resurrectionI am a barrister a trial lawyer if you re in the US I am in the business of trying to prove things and convince people I m an intellectual prostitute used to standing on metaphorical street corners with my gown hitched up plying my mind and my mouth on behalf of whoever will pay I am used to arguing points I find personally offensive I find that I am diligent in preparing and arguing those points than I am when I am arguing points with which I instinctively agree That is a common experience among advocates we are so worried that our own prejudices will get in the way that we overcompensate I found that with this book Anyway I wondered what would happen if I picked up the non Christian brief and argued it as fiercely as I could I wondered what the end result would be and what the experience and the result would do to me xiI think Foster argues both sides uite convincingly It really wasn t clear which one he comes down on until the epilogue I definitely found myself suirming a bit at some of X s evidence I think that paradigms on both sides of the issue will be shaken by the strong assertions and evidence presented here and his dry British wit and thorough arguments make for absorbing and interesting reading If you enjoy courtroom dramas or archeological mysteries you ll enjoy this bookWe shouldn t be afraid to have our beliefs challenged or think we need to have pat answers for everything As Foster saysI ve learned that people like neat summaries They tend to skim straight to the bottom line I think that s depressing I want people to learn to live with loose ends dangling Life is messy and so is history I want people to make up their own minds not have the conclusions spoon fed to them A spoon fed conclusion isn t a conclusion worth having xiiIn the end I feel like my belief in Christ s resurrection was strengthened by reading The Jesus Inuest On the one hand I have a better grasp of the arguments against it and on the other I have a realistic view of some of the popular proofs for it The answers aren t always as clear cut as we d like to make them and it s okay to admit thatI have one minor complaint to mention about the book s format the fact that the notes are at the end rather than as footnotes As you can imagine there are copious notes many with interesting further information I kept a bookmark in the notes so I could flip back and forth easily but it would ve been so much simpler if they d been in footnotes so they were easily accessibleIn closing I want to share one of my favorite uotes from the book This is from the chapter that addresses the issue of the similarity of certain aspects of Christianity to other ancient mythologies and religions While speaking for the Christian side Y says thisChristianity is a myth But it is a true myth It is not surprising that there are echoes of the Christian truths in the great myths of the world As human beings grope toward the truth they don t get nowhere they get somewhere As they strain their ears for divine music they get faint distant broken melodies But then Christianity comes and suddenly the melodies are all there played so clearly and so sweetly that it breaks the heart For many of the listeners the response will be I ve heard something like that before I ve been looking for this all my life That is why the ancient myths of men and the True Myth sometimes sound alike p 278I found The Jesus Inuest to be a compelling and enlightening read I highly recommend itThanks so much to Thomas Nelson for the review copy of this book All opinions expressed are my ownRead Under Creative Commons License Attribution
