The Christian apologist Jo…more
The Christian apologist Josh McDowell, in his book “More Than a Carpenter”, tries to answer issues crucial for our epoch, connected with the person and the deeds of Jesus, called Christ – Who is he? God? A great teacher? Or a liar and a lunatic? Or maybe he is the Devil himself?
McDowell’s research, however, is biased and unsatisfactory.
In “The End of the Jesus Era” the above assumptions regarding “God-man” are thoroughly analyzed, as well as the question whether the Old Testament really prophesies about him.
The topic of God is also of key importance in the investigation: Does He exist? Where is He? What is His name? What does He look like? What is characteristic of Him? What He is not… What has made the biblical image of God so repulsive to a large number of thinking people? …
Autobiographical notes, stories and observations from the time when the author was a zealous Christian are also included in the study.
With passionate commitment to God, the book strongly criticizes Jesus and Religion.
In this respect it is more religious than atheistic, more philosophical than religious and more real-life than philosophical. [close]
