Summary:

From popular culture to the halls of academia, Christianity is under attack. The Old Testament’s accounts of history are often dismissed as myths, while the gospels are frequently derided as a fairy tale. But the critics’ arguments are far weaker than they first appear. In Jesus on Trial, #1 New York Times bestselling author David Limbaugh confronts the skeptics head-on. Applying his lawyer’s eye to the evidence, he produces powerful arguments demonstrating the Bible’s truthfulness. In this audiobook Limbaugh shows: • Abundant evidence that the Bible is the most historically reliable text among all ancient writings • Why the gospels’ account of Jesus’ resurrection is far more convincing than any other explanation of His fate • The Bible’s astonishing feats of prophecy and the skeptics’ feeble attempts to dismiss them • How the critics’ arguments against Christianity are infected with ideological bias • The increasing archaeological evidence affirming the biblical account of history • How Christianity is not only compatible with scientific methods, but was instrumental in the birth of modern science Limbaugh knows the skeptics’ arguments well—because he used to be a skeptic himself. In this audiobook he describes his own faith journey to Christianity, explaining in moving detail the arguments, evidence, and biblical passages that caused him to embrace Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior. Part personal testimony, part Christian apologetic, part informative evaluation of the facts, and part primer on theology, Jesus on Trial provides Christians with a remarkable reaffirmation of their faith—while offering a challenge to skeptics that cannot be ignored.

    This book is an excellent examination of the reliability of scripture, what both the old and new testament actually say about Jesus, and the logic behind faith in God and Jesus. I loved it! Unfortunately the narration is awful! The narrator's voice is similar to what would be used for a robot! I kept going back to it because the content was so good, but had to tolerate the reader!

    A concise summary of the books of the Bible and how each one references Jesus. Would make a great reference book, but I enjoyed listening to it, and it helped bring together the big picture of the gospel.

    The book is very technical and not conducive to listening too. Whoever is reading this book should give up. Monotone Mediocrity at best. It put me to sleep every time I tried to listen.
