Item Description...
Overview
So far, the twenty-first century has been rough on Jesus. Theories that have been swirling around for hundreds of years claiming to discredit His life have suddenly become hot again. None of these theories are completely new. In fact, the hundreds of books, movies, and other reconstructions simply recycle the "top ten" conspiracies. Timothy Paul Jones has researched them all and discovered there is no reason to fear these skeptical reconstructions of Jesus. When subjected to actual historical evidences, each conspiracy crumbles beneath the weight of its own overblown claims.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Readable and Valuable  Mar 5, 2008
I read this book in it's ARC form, and actually read it a few times. Dr. Timothy Jones has created a readable yet thorough examination of the most common challenges that are made against the authority of the scriptures.

This is a valuable resource... for decades preachers have been working to demonstrate that Scriptures are relevant. There's nothing inherently wrong with that. However, the debate has shifted-- our culture wants to know if scripture is reliable. This book is a fantastic handbook to advance that argument.
 
extraordinary leaps of logic  Mar 4, 2008
If you are looking for a fair and balanced rebuttle to the emerging "conspiracies" (as this author so condescendingly dismisses any idea that does not agree with his own) this is not it.

Start by reading the jacket flap. This book was written by a man who has committed a significant part of his life and more than likely his finances to a particular religious worldview. While this is all well and good, he is not going to simply say, "Wow. Those people are right. I've been barking up the wrong tree my entire life!" No. He will come out fighting to defend his life's choices at all costs - and this book reflects that.

Most appalling is how flippantly he dismisses concepts from Gnostic texts. In one example, he quotes text attributed to Jesus from the recently discovered Book of Thomas and then dismisses them as Jesus chasing lions and kicking stones. Completely missing the metaphorical nature of the teaching - that the wisdom and energy of God is in everything and everyone and not accessible through only one person or belief structure - this author reduces the text to a literal translation and thus dismisses it as irrelevant.

There's even a point where he refutes an argument of another author, but leaves nothing but a blank space where that individual's name was to be. Such an enormous typo at the foundation of an entire argument would have been caught by any editor worth ten cents commission.

At another point in the middle of the book when talking about the Holy Grail, he dismisses any contending perspectives by simply stating that knowing Jesus in your heart is the only way to know God and the Holy Grail.

One can only make such an absurd statement once he or she has established a reasonable level of evidential support. This book does nothing of the sort in any convincing manner, and therefore such a statement only reveals this individual is still rooted in a need for a hierarchical structure and therefore predisposed to dismiss the wisdom being revealed through gnosticism.

The sooner believers of this nature stop defending belief structures that do not align with it simply to protect their worldview, the sooner we will end war, poverty, greed, bigotry... all the values at the heart of Christ's teachings - and awaken as a civilization to our potential to each live and function as Christ did.

Books of this nature do not help at all.
