Item Description...
Are the gospels reliable accounts of Jesus? Did Jesus claim to be God? Was Jesus bodily raised from the dead? Is Jesus the only way to salvation? Are Christianity and Islam basically the same? Were the Founding Fathers orthodox Christians? Christians in America are routinely confronted with news of archaeological discoveries or new scholarship claiming to present the "real" Jesus. These challenges have a long tradition in America and can be traced to some of the best-known founders of our nation. In pre-Revolutionary America, the formidable Jonathan Edwards directly confronted the challenge, providing an enduring model for Christians today who desire to articulate and defend the historic, orthodox doctrine of Christ.While Edwards sought to prove the historic Jesus, Benjamin Franklin attempted to improve on the original, offering a Jesus of more practical use to his social and civic purposes. Franklin's approach, inspired by Deist thinkers and refined by Thomas Jefferson, has found new life in the advocates of the Jesus Seminar and of other alternative Christianities. Even the ambassadors of strident atheism-Richard Dawkins, Christopher Hitchens, and Sam Harris-are resurrecting Deist arguments in their best-selling books. These skeptics notably follow the Deist tactic of using the rise of Islam to undermine the uniqueness of Jesus. As a result, there is a widespread erosion of confidence among professing Christians in the supremacy of Jesus Christ. Which "Real" Jesus? reveals that these new views of the "real Jesus" are, in fact, old news.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Scholar Pastor offers a great resource  Oct 14, 2008
Bateman writes not only as a scholar qualified in the fields of American history, Theology, Church History, Apologetics, Ethics, and Modern Culture; he does so from who he is as a Pastor. This work is well written and the language and thought progression flows in such a way that the common person can read this book and gain insight into so many areas.

I highly recommend this book to anyone wrestling with Christianity, or for Christians who will be strengthened in their faith through this work.
"Which Real Jesus"  Oct 6, 2008
Having read Bateman's book over the weekend, I would classify it as brilliant and historic. It is without question a clear answer to an age old debate. Mainstream America needs only read the contents of this work to be highly enlightened regarding the theological stance taken by the real founding fathers of our great nation. Bateman makes his case clear and concise.
