I don’t know where to start with this one. I seldom give bad reviews, preferring to ask the author if they’d rather I withhold my review if I can’t recommend their book, but this is one I bought on my own … and wasted my money.

Of late, I’ve immersed myself in several books attempting to prove not just the historicity of Jesus’ life but the Gospel story of nature miracles and resurrection. They just keep getting worse. In light of my disappointment in these studies, I’ll go out on a limb, here, a

I think this book was written backwards.It's almost as if someone rearranged the chapters. Muncaster tried to use the Bible itself to provide evidence for Jesus before he even began discussing the validity of it. Evidence for the Bible's validity came in the second-half of the book, AFTER Muncaster used the Bible to prove that Jesus was the Messiah and that he resurrected. I think the book would've had more weight if the sections discussing the Bible were the first few chapters. Also, he argues ...more

This book really shows how true the Bible is. Of course, we should already believe that it's true because God says so, but it shows evidence for this.

I didn't find his arguments very convincing. There are better books on the market that deal with Christian apologetics for lay people, such as McDowell's More Than a Carpenter. Summary of evidence:

I.Empty Tomb: no body every found, even though, according to Matthew:
a.Pilate secured tomb by sealing the stone and posting a guard to ensure disciples wouldn’t steal it.
b.The Jewish religious leaders would have made every effort to find it
c.The Roman leaders, too
d.It would have been hard for disci

Evidence for Jesus is an introduction to apologetics. I read it to my two teenagers as an starting point for further exploration.

Here's what I appreciated: I appreciated that my kids learned about ancient manuscripts of the Old Testament and New Testament--how many there are and how accurate they are; they learned about the Scribes and the rules for copying Scriptures; they learned about prophecy written by multiple authors over hundreds of years and their fulfillment. Also, I appreciated that t

Evidence for Jesus is about the evidence that proves that Jesus really existed, and that he was really who he said he was. Some topics covered in this book are the inability to find Jesus's corpse, the miraculous prophecies that he had no control over but still fullfilled, and the hideous ways many early Christians died.

I really enjoyed this book because it reinforced my faith. Being the type of person who likes evidence and logic, this book was very interesting to me. It's message was very diff

We got half way though this book before school ended last year, and I thought we'd finish it over the summer. That didn't happen. Maybe I'll get it finished next go around with the littles.

Thoughtfully presented with logical arguments. Sometimes a little too much of a list when I would have had a bit more exposition, but overall clear and easy to understand.

A fairly good introduction to apologetics. Not particularly in depth, but a decent jumping off point.

This book is not as good as Josh McDowell's "Evidence for Christianity" or Timothy Jones "Misquoting Truth".
