Attacks on the historical reliability of the Gospelsespecially their portrayal of Jesus Christare nothing new. But are these attacks legitimate? Is there reason to doubt the accuracy of the Gospels? By examining and refuting some of the most common criticisms of the Gospels, author Mark D. Roberts explains why we can indeed trust the Gospels, nearly two millennia after they were written.
Lay readers and scholars alike will benefit from this accessible book, and will walk away confident in the reliability of the Gospels.

It was almost as though nobody had done any proof reading - hyphenated words were in the middle of the column (it appeared to be "hard" returns that stayed in when page orientation and font changes were applied), and many of the footnote numbers had part of the footnotes in many cases inserted directly into the text instead of referring to the footnote number at the end of the chapter.

Ukpong Eyo4 Stars Out Of 5May 14, 2010Ukpong EyoThis is a very assessable book that would speak to the Christian who is struggling to reconcile his/her Faith with theologically liberal attacks. The author is very winsome in his wording and actually grants a lot of the liberal ideas (although he doesn't agree with their conclusions). It's good because one doesn't need to take the "blind" conservative approach of "closing ones ears and eyes".My only problem with it is that it is more of a beginner's book on the issue. This is my personal issue because I already knew quite a bit of the things in there and wanted more depth. Nevertheless, it should be a good starter and help to those who may be struggling with these types of issues.
Kristen Jeffrey5 Stars Out Of 5June 13, 2007Kristen JeffreyDr. Mark D. Roberts does an exemplary job at giving a clear and reasonable case for the authenticity of the gospels. Not being a biblical scholar myself, its comfortable to read (there were no overly-academic or convoluted arguments) yet it was still provocative and academically informed. Most importantly, as a Christian it helped me see the beauty and dependability of the gospels. This is definitely a book worth reading.
