Two Scholars Take on Tough Issues
October 2, 2017
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!
