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.

    "Great Read, highly informative and Engaging."

    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

    "OK"

    This is a good book for someone who wants to accept Christianity but still looking for evidence. However, I find the evidence discussed here is a bit lame. The historical "evidence" here depends on the number of texts that support Christianity without validating the reliability of these texts and on a large number of prophecies that we cannot be sure if they were written before or after Jesus.
    It is still a good book, trying its best to convince people of the undeniable evidence that it claims exists, while if you want to think objectively and not let yourself taken by the authors verbal excellency, you'll find the evidence as good as that of other religions (I'm trying not to name one). Atheists on the other side do not claim -as far as I know- that science is on their side as the author believes, but they rather refuse religion as an explanation and simply confess that they do not know.

    "Powerful"

    This book was powerful. It's part testimony, part research. The truth that the author found after researching the Bible, its claims, and its authenticity was laid out really well in this book. The testimony of the change it made in the authors life was powerful. I really enjoyed this one and got some good life notes out of it.

    "This book is great!"

    So I was searching in Audible for a book on carpentry and I saw this book at the top of the list it was a little misleading because I really did think it was going to talk about carpentry but as I got deeper into it I realized it was a book about Jesus Christ now having read the Bible I do understand many things about Jesus Christ so this was very helpful in my study of Jesus. I only took away one star because I was hoping at some point it would tie in carpentry with the trials of Jesus but it did not, other than that it was a wonderful book!

    "skips important concerns"

    good narration and decent arguments but doesn't address concerns that the gospels were altered afterwards to conform with the prophecies or that much of the story may have been fabricated afterwards. I feel he uses an unsound premise to build off on, so his following arguments are irrelevant because it's possibly true yet possibly not.

    Much wisdom in such a short book! Worth the read and it's less than $2, but worth more than money can buy!

    "Skipped pages"
    How could the performance have been better?

    Chapter(sections) weren't accurate for example chapter six is listed as chapter seven in the audiobook. <br/>Skipped several pages in chapter six including half of pag 64, 65, 66, 67, and half of 68.


    Any additional comments?

    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.
