Dethroning Jesus: Exposing Popular Culture's Quest to Unseat the Biblical Christ

Thomas Nelson / 2010 / Paperback

In Stock
Stock No: WW297857


Product Description

New York Times best-selling author Darrell Bock teams with Daniel Wallace to help lay readers separate fact from fiction and help from hype in the recent best-selling Jesus books and television specials.

There is a quest going on. It's the quest to reduce Jesus to a mythic legend or to nothing more than a mere man. Scholars such as Elaine Pagels and James Tabor are using such recent discoveries as the Gospel of Judas and the Gospel of Thomas to argue that the Christ of Christianity is a contrived figure and that a different Christ-one human and not divine-is the "true" Christ.

In his trademark easy-to-understand style Darrell Bock takes on these attempts to redefine Jesus in a convincing, winsome way that will help readers understand that the orthodox understanding of Christ and his divinity is as trustworthy and sure as it ever was. Joining Bock for the first time is fellow scholar Daniel Wallace.

    Please note that this book deals with matters of weighty scholarship, textual issues, and matters that are likely to confuse the average layperson. So unless you are an avid student of Christian apologetics, or are struggling personally with these issues, I urge you to avoid this book. That said, the book is a good defense of the traditional view of Jesus as the Son of God. It responds to many claims from modern critics (most notably Bart Ehrman.) Unlike so many books on Christian apologetics, "Dethroning Jesus" doesn't build a whole case for orthodox, traditional, trinitarian, evangelical, Christianity. Instead of getting distracted there it simply gives credible answers to attacks on the traditional texts, the interpretations of bogus scholars, the presuppositions of real (but biased) scholars, and constructs a positive case for the Jesus of faith. The two authors have clearly thought about the issues, and done their homework in preparation for this volume. You're not likely to find a better defense (that has credible scholarship behind it) of Jesus Christ as the incarnate Son of God!
