These days most people will grant that Jesus Christ was a great teacher who lived in a corner of the old Roman empire. Most also welcome his teachings as a sound basis for civilization. But what difference does that make now? Why has a whole religion been built on this person? What did he actually say and do? And how can we trust the written records about him? This fast-moving, highly readable book introduces Jesus of Nazareth honestly and openly, with no prior knowledge assumed. Michael Green is the highly respected author of more than fifty books. He has been Principal of St. John's College, Nottingham, Rector to St. Aldate's Church Oxford, and Professor of Evangelism and New Testament at Regent College, Vancouver. He now serves as Senior Research Fellow at Wycliffe Hall, Oxford University.

Can We Trust the New Testament? questions the historical accuracy of widely held views of early Christianity. In this book radical Bible scholar G. A. Wells examines Biblical accounts of the lives of the apostles Peter and Paul and presents evidence that the events described in the New Testament were written over time to support the agendas of the Christian church. He embarks on a close analysis of the Book of Acts, questioning its authorship and casting doubt on the events it and the gospels describe.

Biblical Interpretation

Author : Yung Suk Kim

Yung Suk Kim asks important questions in Biblical Interpretation: Why do we care about the Bible and biblical interpretation? How do we know which interpretation is better? He expertly brings to the fore the essential elements of interpretation--the reader, the text, and the reading lens--and attempts to explore a set of criteria for solid interpretation. While celebrating the diversity of biblical interpretation, Kim warns that not all interpretations are valid, legitimate, or healthy because interpretation involves the complex process of what he calls critical contextual biblical interpretation. He suggests that readers engage with the text by asking important questions of their own: Why do we read? How do we read? and What do we read?

The character of Jesus Christ looms large in the history of the world. This one man has influenced more people and cultures than anyone else. But the "new critics" and popular culture have distorted truths about the greatest man in history. In Jesus: Fact and Fiction, author Robert M. Bowman busts current myths and answers popular questions about Jesus such as: •Was Jesus a mythical figure? •Are the Gnostic gospels better sources for Jesus than the New Testament Gospels? •Where was Jesus during his "lost years"? •Did the "Jesus family tomb" belong to Jesus Christ? •Is Jesus just one of the world's many religious founders? •Did the early church twist the Old Testament to support its claim that Jesus was the Messiah? •and other questions.

You can’t trust the Bible; it’s been translated too many times. Jesus never claimed to be the Messiah or God. Science has proven that miracles don’t happen (so the Bible is a fairytale). All religions basically teach the same thing (so all paths lead to God). Have you heard these? People say a lot of things about the Bible, God, Jesus, and Christianity that are simply not true. Like the guys on the popular cable show Mythbusters, it’s time we put these commonly held myths to the test. Following a brief summary of a recurring myth or misconception about the Christian faith, Fred explains why the myth is false and provides biblical and historical evidence in his response. He masterfully weaves together serious discussion with a touch of humor in his responses, all the while keeping the focus on the Scriptures. He avoids making fun of the people who hold views which differ from his own, but the views themselves are fair game. So grab a cup of coffee and find a cozy corner. Let’s do a little myth busting of our own.

For years the term "IN GOD WE TRUST" has labeled our currency and our country and I have been proud to have served my nation and its motto for twenty two years of military service. With that in mind I am disappointed to see the spiritual direction that America is going in. There has been a real assault on the Bible - The Word of God and especially Christianity. I still want to believe that God wants to bless America but I must be honest, I have my doubt that "In God We Trust" probably has seen its better days. What really bothers me is I'm concerned America's motto today is IN GOD WE TRUST, or do we?"
