I like to think that although I have a strong faith I am also open minded and willing to hear what other people think.

Indeed, it has. The Jesus Inquest is written in a very comprehensive and scholarly way. There is no questioning the author's credentials: ... Fascinating historical insights into the gospels

On 10/17 Jesse McKendree wrote: This book definitely covered a lot of bases. It gives the view from two sides (X and Y), one for and one against the resurrection of Jesus Christ. I definitely love that it not only gives the opposing arguments, but does so with credibility to the other side. I thought Foster did an excellent job of ... The Jesus Inquest
