The ages old controversy of whether Jesus Christ truly died on the cross was buried and resurrected is looked at through the eyes of a attorney with both sides given complete consideration in The Jesus Inuest The Case For And Against The Resurrection Of The Christ by Charles Foster Charles Foster a lawyer explorer and medical ethics professor at the University of Oxford has fairly treated both sides of this age old uestion that so many of us ask ourselves Could It Be True or Was It All A HoaxUsing a complete resources guide from historical records and archeological discoveries made recently Charles Foster has examined all the facts in the minutest detail and come up with his own conclusion He may be the only man who could have treated both sides euallyI will say that The Jesus Inuest is not an easy book to read no matter what side of the fence you claim to support but that is the nature of reading material from an attorney The flow tends to go back and forth and I would have preferred that the illustrations and photos were aligned with the topics they were discussing rather than in the center of the book but alas that was not the caseI myself found the book fascinating to read and learned a few things that I was not aware of Of course with a topic of this explosive nature you are sure to have new claims come to the forefront all the time As a believer I didn t need to read it but as a believer I wanted to read all I can get my hands on as well For those who aren t believers you may find some interesting facts reside within these pages that may or may not change your mind The point is to be aware of everything before you make a claim on a position in one way or another The Jesus Inuest will give you that knowledge and I hope you ll give it a serious consideration to reading what s contained within these wonderful pagesI would love to go along with him on one of his many research uests How exciting that would be You ll find The Jesus Inuest The Case For And Against The Resurrection Of The Christ by Charles Foster Thomas Nelson Publishers at or at Barnes Noble

Read & Download The Jesus Inuest Ü PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Charles Foster thought he knew the familiar story of the resurrection of Jesus He thought Christianity rested on sound historical foundationsBut could he be wrong Could Christianity be built on a terrible mistake or downright lieAs nagging doubts began to surface Foster turned to countless Christian books to find comfort and proof But all he found were uestions What began as a personal uest for reassurance uickly turned into an in depth examination of the most astounding. But if there is no resurrection of the dead neither hath Christ been raised and if Christ hath not been raised then is our preaching vain your faith also is vain 1 Corinthians 1513 14Throughout its existence Christianity has been founded upon the death and resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth If Jesus did not die andor was not raised from the dead Christianity is just another fiction But if Jesus did die and He was raised from the dead then the claim that Jesus is Lord and that we ought to serve Him must be taken very seriously Therefore from the beginning until now the validity of the claims of Jesus death and resurrection have never lacked a challengerCharles Foster enters this fray with The Jesus Inuest The Case For and Against the Resurrection of the Christ Foster an English jurist attempts to use the same rigorous mode of inuiry that is used before a court in order to weigh the arguments for and against the death and resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth The end result is one of the most comprehensive yet understandable analyses of the current state of arguments for and against Jesus death and resurrectionArguments are made against the claims of Christianity through the guise of X the Christian response is presented though the guise of Y The two sides are lined up against each other on whether Jesus really died on the cross or not how Jesus was buried the matter of the empty tomb the post resurrection appearances of Jesus whether the early church believed in Jesus physical and bodily resurrection and the potential sources for the story of the resurrection Appendices include further examinations into Jesus cause of death the Shroud of Turin statistical analyses and the Jesus Family Tomb and the text of the Gospel of Peter Foster wonders if he puts the arguments of X forcefully enough as a believer sympathetic to Y I nevertheless believe that he has X and his character fairly well presented The arguments presented are about as well done as can be under the circumstances The presentation of the evidence goes a long way to show just how weak the case against Jesus death and resurrection is one might be able to make a few challenges regarding the way the story is presented in the New Testament but no credible serious and sensible counter explanation can be provided to explain the emergence of the beliefs surrounding Jesus of Nazareth as the crucified and risen Son of God One must take care to remember that X is presented as a hot mess Foster is providing all kinds of counter arguments most of them inconsistent with each other One does not do well to see the inconsistencies and thus write X off entirely My one criticism of the book would be the fact that X will present the sensationalistic as well as the standard challenges to the Christian narrative without a whole lot of clear demarcation between the two The claims of Holy Blood Holy Grail or The Jesus Family Tomb do not belong in the same category as arguments about the vinegar as an opiate leading to a coma or arguments about the possibility of the wrong tomb not that the latter are inherently any accurate but they are not as ridiculous Considering the author s purpose I don t know how it could be better handled but I thought it was worth noting While Foster never comes out and says where he ultimately stands his sympathies with Y are clear enough as well they should be The Jesus Inuest is an excellent resource for everyone as it provides a good introduction to where the disputes about Jesus death and resurrection have led and presents the arguments reasonably well book received as part of early review program

The Jesus Inuest by Charles FosterThe Case for and Against the Resurrection of the ChristCharles Foster is a barrister in England a barrister is a type of lawyer In deciding to write about the authenticity for the death and resurrection of Christ he decided to take an approach which felt most comfortable to him that of a lawyerThe Jesus Inuest is an interesting book in that it strives hard to be as objective as possible Foster broke the book into 8 chapters each dealing with a different element of the resurrection story Within each chapter two viewpoints are expressed The first of which is person X who argues that against Christianity X is a conglomeration of what Foster sees as the most popular elements against Christianity So X argues against Jesus death burial and resurrection Person Y is a Christian who is arguing that the Christian Bible is true and the resurrection story can be believed The style in which each side follows is similar in how an attorney might present a case in a court room Thus the arguments usually follow a rational line of thought and each side works to rebuttal each other or preemptively defend their viewpointAt 318 pages this book is uite detailed in its arguments some of which I was never aware of It also appears to have of a scholarly background than a book such as Lee Strobel s A Case for Christ and also approaches the topic with the intentions of being objective which I appreciated To fully understand an argument it does help to view it without the opposing view adding asides that distractOne of the major weaknesses of the book however is that both X and Y have extremely similar voices since they are written by the same author After a chapter or two it grows easy to foresee exactly how Y will rebuttal X s arguments Their arguments also follow similar structures though their conclusions and use of data differThere are also many points of redundancies among arguments Foster tries to avoid the worst of these by having X or Y note that the argument had already been covered and then include a footnote with the pages but it is impossible to cover all redundancies especially when one chapter concerns the burial and another the empty tombAll in all this was an interesting read Foster covers a lot of ground and I would have to say it is one of the most objective books I have read on the topic which is a rather surprising considering it is published by a man who appears to be a Christian and it was published through a Christian publisher It also deals with what some may see as specific points of interest such as whether the tomb of Jesus has really been discovered or an examination of the Shroud of Turin a section which I found particularly interesting since I have never engaged the subject before35 StarsI received this book free from Thomas Nelson Publishers as part of their BookSneezecom book review bloggers program I was not reuired to write a positive review The opinions I have expressed are my own I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission s 16 CFR Part 255
