In Jesus on Trial, New York Times bestselling author David Limbaugh applies his lifetime of legal experience to a unique new undertaking: making a case for the gospels as hard evidence of the life and work of Jesus Christ. Limbaugh, a practicing attorney and former professor of law, approaches the canonical gospels with the same level of scrutiny he would apply to any legal document and asks all the necessary questions about the story of Jesus told through Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. His analysis of the texts becomes profoundly personal as he reflects on his own spiritual and intellectual odyssey from determined skeptic to devout Christian. Ultimately, Limbaugh concludes that the words Christians have treasured for centuries stand up to his exhaustive enquiry - including his examination of historical and religious evidence beyond the gospels - and thereby affirms Christian faith, spirituality, and tradition.

"I have known lawyers who followed Mr. Limbaugh's path & found Christ too"
This book takes you on the same path many who have tried to discredit the Bible.
I knew of a Jewish Lawyer who in anger was going to once and for all disprove the Bible, what happened was what happened to Mr. Limbaugh.
This Lawyer's eyes were opened by Isaiah 53.
This book is great for believers & non believers alike
I highly recommend it
"Difficult to follow audibly"
This is probably a book that should be visually read. while I understand it was necessary to quote chapters and verses, it distracted from the storyline for me.
"Only half as persuasive as I wanted it to be"
I was looking forward to a conclusive slam-dunk logical argument from a man who should know logical proofs best: a lawyer. While many of the author's arguments were new to me, and were persuasive; many others depended upon assumptions about the nature of God and his motivations, which of the author seems to accept as universally accepted proven fact. Despite those hollow arguments, the book is a worthwhile listen, although it did not hold my attention until about the ninth chapter. Perhaps a second listen later on will prove more enlightening. I am still hopeful.
"A treasure trove of information"
So good that I bought the hard copy for my reference library. Filled with a large variety of information.
"Great reading. I thoroughly enjoyed it."
Great narrative, plenty of reference. Eye opening. I enjoyed the way it was put together.
"Facts are a great thing!"
Narrator not the best but the content was great! listening repeatedly to soak it all in.
"from Facts to Faith, Awesome!!"
This book is second in my list of top books only because Dr Bill Creasy Bible study is my first. Since i have already covered most of the bible study, This Jesus on Trial book was even more exciting to listen to.
This book not only reinforces my believes but it makes me proud to be a Christian. As Christians we seem to almost be ashamed to defend our beliefs and stand up for them. This book gives you all the reasons and examples as to why Christianity is so amazing and worth believing in. I only wish i could memorize everything in this book because i am sadden that so many people will not read it so i will do my best to spread the word and use what i have learned from it to share with everyone I meet.
Yes, i wish i had the time to sit and just listen to it in one sitting. I was only able to listen for 2 hour every day while driving to and from work and i looked forward to the drive just to listen. This book made traffic in New York insignificant.
"jesus! I love you"
Is an exhaustive study of the bible and jesus and really hits nail on head
Easy to follow; the author provided valid and scholarly sources. This book is an excellent resource for the analytical believer and it is an essential eye opener for those who " aren't quite sure". It was well worth the money!
"This a great book. I recommend to everyone."
This single book does a great job of explaining how the Bible was written by 40 authors, over a 1,000 plus year time period, from different geographic places, who could not have collaborated, yet the Bible is one unified message. Book also elaborates on the historical accuracy of the Bible, as well as fulfillment of Biblical prophecies.
