How To Get Rid of Jesus: Prove He Didn't Exist! A popular question posed by Christians today asks, "WWJD?" - which stands for, "What Would Jesus Do?" For more and more Skeptics of Christianity, however, the answer to this question is, "JDNE" - which stands for, "Jesus did not exist!" In this volume, edited by prominent Internet apologist James Patrick Holding, a team of Christian authors provide a series of essays giving detailed answers to those who argue for the "Christ myth." Though rejected by mainstream scholars, this theory continues to grow in popularity among popular writers and Internet antagonists. The need for Christians to be ready to give an answer to it will only become more urgent. "Here's a clear and compelling rebuttal to fallacious claims that keep resurfacing in books and on the Internet. It's well-researched, expertly presented, and ultimately convincing." - Lee Strobel, author, The Case for the Real Jesus

Since at least the fourth century CE, the Jewish historian Josephus’ Judean Antiquities has been assumed to be a critical source for valid extra-biblical evidence pertaining to the existence of the historical Jesus, James the Just and John the Baptist. Based on the latest findings from both contemporary and independent research, this book sets out, step by step, the final proof that (apart from the New Testament) there is absolutely no valid record pertaining to the historical existence of any of these individuals.

For anyone who feels caught in the tension between the beauty of God's story and the ugliness of human hypocrisy, Why I Still Believe offers a stirring story of hope. Why would anyone be a Christian when there is so much hypocrisy in the church? Mary Jo Sharp shares her journey as a skeptical believer who still holds to a beautiful faith despite wounding experiences in the Christian community. At a time when de-conversion stories have become all too common, this is an earnest response - the compelling conversion of an unlikely believer whose questions ultimately led her to irresistible hope. Sharp addresses her own struggle with the reality that God's people repeatedly give God's story a bad name and takes a careful look at how the current church often inadvertently produces atheists despite its life-giving message. For those who feel the ever-present tension between the beauty of salvation and the dark side of human nature, Why I Still Believe is a candid and approachable case for believing in God when you really want to walk away. With fresh and thoughtful insights, this spiritual narrative presents relevant answers to haunting questions like: Isn't there too much pain and suffering to believe? Is it okay to have doubt? What if Jesus' story is a copy of another story? Is there any evidence for Jesus' resurrection? Does atheism explain the human experience better than Christianity can? How can the truth of Christianity matter when the behaviors of Christians are reprehensible? At once logical and loving, Sharp reframes the gospel as it truly is: the good news of redemption. With firmly grounded truths, Why I Still Believe is an affirming reminder that the hypocrisy of Christians can never negate the transforming grace and truth of Christ.

Is the Bible reliable - or has is it been corrupted? Many popular sources, ranging from Dan Brown's The Da Vinci Code to Bart Ehrman's Misquoting Jesus, claim that the New Testament as we know it has been corrupted, damaged, or tampered with. Are these charges true? Or can we trust the New Testament? In this volume, prominent Internet apologist James Patrick Holding will take a closer look at four aspects of the transmission of the New Testament, and answer these important questions: [Was the New Testament material corrupted when it was passed on by word of mouth, before it was written down? [Was the New Testament material corrupted as it was copied in writing in its early years? [Was the New Testament material really written by the people whose names are on the books? [Was the New Testament canon judiciously selected? Learn the answers to these critical queries, and you'll learn our reasons for Trusting the New Testament! "I am confident that this work by James Patrick Holding will be a valuable asset to anyone who is in need of powerful evidence and information regarding the integrity of the New Testament." - Dr. Richard Howe, Professor of Philosophy and Apologetics, Southern Evangelical Seminary (from the Foreword)

Portraying themselves as challenging blind religious dogma with evidence-led skepticism, the neo-atheist movement claims that the New Testament contains unreliable tales about a mythical figure who, far from being the resurrected Lord of life, may not even have lived. This comprehensive critique documents the falsehood of these neo-atheist claims, correcting their historical and philosophical mistakes to show how we can get at the truth about the historical Jesus.

The keystone of Christianity is Jesus's physical, bodily resurrection. Present-day scholars can be significantly challenged as they forage through voluminous documents on the resurrection of Jesus. The literature measures well over seven thousand sources in English-language books alone. This makes finding specific sources that are most relevant for specific scholarly purposes an arduous task. Even when a specific book is relevant, finding the parts of the book that are most relevant to the resurrection rather than other topics often requires additional effort. A Thematic Access-Oriented Bibliography of Jesus's Resurrection addresses these challenges in several ways. First, the bibliography organizes more than seven thousand English sources into twelve main categories and then thirty-four subcategories, which are designed to help you find the most relevant literature quickly and efficiently. Embedded are pro and con arguments which support efficient access through brief annotations and then annotate the diversity and complexity of the field of religion by including sources that represent a diverse range of views: theistic (e.g., Christian, Jewish, Muslim, etc.), agnostic, and nontheistic. The objective of this bibliography is to provide convenient access to relevant sources from a variety of perspectives, allowing you to browse or find the one source accurately and with ease.

Many devout Christians will not like this book as I have discovered that they are neither interested, nor concerned with anything which challenges their long taught beliefs. I did not make history, but merely write on its historical significance in the events of mankind. For those truth seekers who are interested in the 'Why' regarding religious beliefs, this book offers a genesis of Christian beliefs. Religion is a multi-million dollar a year business, and world wide, that figure runs into the billions. Is the true nature of faith focused on mankind or merely a financial endeavor? Extraordinary care has been taken to present the good, and the bad, as well as the ugly side of religion.

Much of the New Testament was written in urban settings, in which the Christian communities had to deal head-on with issues such as race, equality, justice, sexuality, money, and economics. But much of today’s apologetics (engagement with the questions that people are asking about Christianity) come from suburban churches and academic studies. Urban believers—those who live and minister in America’s inner cities—often face unique issues, not often addressed by the larger Christian community. These questions aren’t neat or easy to answer but need to be addressed by applying biblical truth in the culture and challenges of urban life. Author Chris Brooks has ministered for years in the urban environment as well as received extensive theological training. In Urban Apologetics, he seeks to connect the riches of the Christian apologetic tradition with the issues facing cities—such as poverty, violence, and broken families. He brings an urban rhythm and sensitivity to the task of demonstrating the relevance of faith and the healing truth that Christ provides.

Everything you think you know about Jesus is wrong! The Christ Enigma looks at the findings of serious scholars and archaeologists who have shown that the Greatest Story Ever Told is the stuff of myth. There never was any Mary and Joseph, birth in Bethlehem, Sermon on the Mount, Last Supper or Crucifixion in Jerusalem. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. What if Jesus himself never really walked the sands of Palestine? What evidence exists for this? In the Christ Enigma you’ll discover: * How the Turin Shroud was really made * The real story of the Twelve Disciples * The real facts about Mary Magdalene * Why Nazareth didn't exist during Jesus’ lifetime * The real truth behind Christ’s Crucifixion and Resurrection * How the Church conceals the facts about real Christianity to this day So why did Matthew, Mark, Luke and John write the Gospels? Well, they're much more than the life-story of the Man From Nazareth. It’s all explained here in The Christ Enigma – Did Jesus Really Exist?

Does the woman in Proverbs 31 make you feel like a sluggard? For years Christian women have struggled to understand what the Proverbs 31 woman was all about. Instead of encouragement or instruction, for most, this passage offered “more guilt than eating a one-pound bag of M&Ms.” Is this the ideal woman? Or is the Proverbs 31 woman an outdated fixture of the past?Vicky Courtney believes that this passage is not in the Bible by accident and that a virtuous woman is a rare find in today’s world. Join Vicki as she sojourns with you to unravel the mystery behind the Proverbs 31 woman.
