Publisher's Summary

Over the past hundred years, scholars have attacked the historical truth of the Gospels and argued that they were originally anonymous and filled with contradictions. In The Case for Jesus, Brant Pitre taps in to the wells of Christian scripture, history, and tradition to ask and answer a number of different questions, including: If we don't know who wrote the Gospels, how can we trust them? How are the four Gospels different from other Gospels, such as the lost Gospel of "Q" and the Gospel of Thomas? How can the four Gospels be historically true when there are differences between them? How much faith should be put into these writings?

As The Case for Jesus will show, recent discoveries in New Testament scholarship as well as neglected evidence from ancient manuscripts and the early church fathers together have the potential to pull the rug out from under a century of skepticism toward the apostolic authorship and historical truth of the traditional Gospels.

What the Critics Say

"I've lost count how many times I've heard critics say the Gospels are late, anonymous, and untrustworthy sources that don't prove the divinity of Christ. At last there is a book that refutes these claims with scholarly rigor while still being an enjoyable read for lay persons." (Trent Horn, author of Answering Atheism)

    "Insightful"

    Full of great insights about Jesus and the Bible, highly recommend. Whether you are a Christian or not I think you will find Pitre's presentation of the subject fair, scholarly, yet approachable. He makes a surprisingly convincing case for the historicity of the gospels and Jesus claims to be Devine. The insights into 1st century Judaism make it valuable even if you have know doubts as to who Jesus was.

    "Enlightening"

    Gives solid evidence to why some modern biblical scholars are completely wrong on their dating of when the gospels were written. Answers the tough questions on why we should believe that the Bible is accurate.

    "Pitre Debunks Bart Ehrman"

    Brant Pitre, among other points, explains why Bart Ehrman, in his book "How Jesus Became God" is simply incorrect in most cases. Ehrman misunderstands basic premises of the Gospels and the Old Testament. One does not have to be a scholar to enjoy this book! (Although familiarity with scripture would make this book much more valuable to the listener/reader)

    "Quite Scholarly"

    the narration was excellent but it was a challenge to maintain focus due to the repetition of Greek and Hebrew texts where the repetition was not necessary.

    "Thought inspiring and reassuring!

    "

    Brant Pitre has written a thoughtful and well researched examination of the case for Christ's Divinity and Messiahship. He effortlessly debunks the hypotheses put forth by many atheist New Testament Scholars , as well as those who are academically irresponsible or lazy.

    This book answered many of my questions. Jesus divinity, his claim of who he is in the synoptic gospels, etc.

    "Strong and Informed Orthodoxy"

    One of those books that is so full of information you learn something at every turn. Straightens out many warped readings and bent interpretations. Gives you confidence in an orthodox belief in the Bible.
