On 3/9 Barbara Davis wrote: This extraordinary book takes us through medical evidence, Jewish burial practices, ancient artifacts, gospel history, and biblical criticism. The author who is a practicing trail attorney looks at both sides in his attempt to uncover the real Jesus. Was he the much awaited Christ or a celebrated teacher ... compelling work

On 3/9 LylisDad wrote: The Jesus Inquest By Charles Foster Book Description An unbiased examination and compelling courtroom presentation revealing the undeniable facts of the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. My first concern was that this was going to be another attempt to 'debunk' the death and ressurection of Christ. ... A must read for believers and skeptics!

On 3/2 David Richmond wrote: The resurrection of Jesus Christ is by far the central tenet of the Christian faith.  It is at once the core of our doctrine and the source of new life in Christ Jesus.  When I saw Charles Foster's The Jesus Inquest was available, I jumped at the chance to read it.  The book is extremely ...

On 3/1 Mary Vidinich wrote: This book provides a case for and against the resurrection of Christ.  I have to admit, I found this book somewhat difficult to read.  Not because I didn’t understand what the author was saying, but because it often annoyed me and made me think that he did not particularly think his audience ...
