"Who do you say that I am?" - Jesus
The Historical Jesus examines this mystery, answering the age-old question of Christ's identity.
"This is an up-to-date, timely, and scholarly treatment of a crucial dimension of the Christian faith by one of the foremost historical apologists in America today." -Dr. Norm Geisler, Dean of Southern Evangelical Seminary Veritas Graduate School
"The Historical Jesus is a careful, accessible analysis and critique of the various approaches to the historical Jesus. Habermas defends the historical veracity of the orthodox view of Jesus with a detailed set of convincing arguments. I don't know how someone could read this book without concluding that Jesus Christ was who the New Testament proclaimed Him to be." -Dr. J.P. Moreland, Professor of Philosophy, Talbot School of Theology, Biola University
"In The Historical Jesus, Habermas has provided us with an impressive critical overview of the historical Jesus that is at once penetratingly insightful and remarkable comprehensive. This work constitutes one of the best comprehensive refutation of the new revisionist views of Jesus to date as well as one of the best historical defenses of the evangelical view that Jesus was, and is, the Son of God. Must read..." -Dr. Gregory A. Boyd, Bethel College, Author of Cynic Sage or Son of God?; Recovering the Real Jesus in an Age of Revisionist Replies; Jesus Under Siege; and Letters From a Skeptic.
"Dr. Habermas combines his expertise as a philosopher and New Testament historian to offer a careful analysis of current trends in the study of Jesus...a balanced, biblical argument for the historicity of the New Testament documents and the evidence for the life, ministry, and resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth. This is an excellent text to prepare students and pastors to understand the essential issues in the study of Jesus." - Dr. Michael J. Wilkins, Dean of the Faculty, Talbot School of Theology, Biola University
The Historical Jesus: Ancient Evidence for the Life of Christ has 11 chapters and 304 pages.
