The inspirational classic, More than a Carpenter, is now updated for a new generation of seekers with a fresh look, revised material, and a new chapter that addresses questions commonly raised today. Former skeptic Josh McDowell is now joined by his son Sean as they examine the evidence about Jesus. Is he really the Lord he claimed to be? How can we know for sure? More than a Carpenter offers arguments for faith from a skeptic turned believer.
Since its original publication in 1977, this modern classic has sold over 15 million copies, been translated into dozens of languages, and introduced countless people to the real Jesus. Now with new content that addresses questions raised by today's popular atheist writers.

I'd recommend this for every Christian and Non Christian.
For Christians there is enough bitesize information yo affirm your faithful and aid you when evangelising to atheists and theists of other faiths.
for the atheists this will get you started on evidence that Christ is who he says he is
Much wisdom in such a short book! Worth the read and it's less than $2, but worth more than money can buy!
Chapter(sections) weren't accurate for example chapter six is listed as chapter seven in the audiobook.
Skipped several pages in chapter six including half of pag 64, 65, 66, 67, and half of 68.
I have loved the book so far but I didn't start using the audio version until chapter six. While reading it I noticed he skipped several pages that included some really good stuff. I don't know if this happens again later on but nonetheless it is very annoying and I would greatly appreciate if it could be fixed. Other than that the book is great and I would recommend to anyone.
"love the natural voice of the speaker"
The natural voice of the speaker. Really liked the way he wove real life experience with biblical truth.
love it! I would recommend it for everyone to read. it's very informative. Great read.
"More than a Carpenter is simple but powerful"
Very easy listen and challenges anyone who is not a believer in Jesus Christ to do the research and you too will see He is real and He Loves you!
"More than a carpenter review"
Jack McDowell goes to great links to describe what it means to be a Christian from his perspective. His personal experiences are powerful especially for someone who has seen the work of the Holy Spirit in their own life. Experiencing this testimony from a non-Christian outlook could be quite different, however I believe most of them could relate to his pre-Christian lifestyle and viewpoints.
Thank you Mr. McDowell for the powerful apologetics presented here. I plan on re-reading and notetaking to strengthen my own testimony and historical background knowledge.
"the evidence is compelling"
The narrator sounded young. but the story is compelling. this book would make a good gift.
"One of the best proofs for Jesus Christ by far."
Love it. One of the best proofs for our Christian faith out there right now. A must read for anyone struggling with Christianity.
"Not sure why I went with 2 stars"
The book was written well - but you can't use the bible as your factual proof to support your reasons and theories that you base your arguments - especially for someone who questions the bible as being anything more than a fictional story.
"Give me more!"
More than a Carpenter left me with a desire to seek God fully. To continue to grow in truth and to weigh all the evidence. It is easy to see how Josh came to his conclusions and I pray that this book will continue to impact skeptics for the glory of His kingdom.
