Hardcover - Feb 1 1995 by Michael J. Wilkins(Author), James Porter Moreland (Editor)
Jesus Under Fire questions the findings of the Jesus Seminar that have challenged the biblical record of Jesus and his life and ministry, and presents rationally grounded affirmations of the traditional biblical teachings. Arguments are clearly laid out so that the church and the broader community can understand the issues and respond to modern theories intelligently and responsibly. Contributors, including New Testament scholars, philosophers, and apologists, begin with an evaluation of the methodology of the modern critical approach and a review of the latest wave of controversial books. The words, the actions, the miracles, and the resurrection of Jesus are examined for authenticity. Finally, the issues of exclusivism and pluralism are addressed.
