The Gospels — Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John — tell the story of the life and teachings of Jesus Christ while he was on earth. But how do we know if they are true? What evidence is there that the events actually happened?
This accessible introduction to the historical and theological reliability of the four Gospels, written by New Testament scholar Peter J. Williams, presents evidence from a variety of non-Christian sources, assesses how accurately the 4 accounts reflect the cultural context of their time, compares different accounts of crucial events, and considers how these texts were handed down throughout the centuries.
Written for the sceptic, the scholar, and everyone in between, this book answers common objections raised against the historicity of the Gospels, and challenges the reader to decide for themselves whether the Gospels are fact or fiction.
We live in an age of scepticism. Our society places such faith in empirical reason, historical progress, and heartfelt emotion that it’s easy to wonder: why should anyone believe in Christianity? What role can faith and religion play in our modern lives?
In this thoughtful and inspiring book, pastor and New York Times bestselling author Timothy Keller invites sceptics to consider that Christianity is as relevant now as ever. As human beings, we cannot live without meaning, satisfaction, freedom, identity, justice and hope — and Christianity provides us with unsurpassed resources to meet all these needs.
Written for both sceptic and believer, Making Sense of God shines a light on the profound value and importance of Christianity in our lives.
Suffering and evil affect us all, both at a general level, as we look at a world filled with injustice, natural disasters and poverty, and at a personal level, as we experience grief, pain and unfairness. And how we think about and process the reality of pain is at the heart of why many people reject God.
Dr. Amy Orr-Ewing is no stranger to pain and gives a heartfelt yet academically rigorous examination of how different belief systems deal with the problem of pain. She explains the unique answer that is found in Christ and how he alone can give us true hope in the reality of suffering.
Shane was officially one of Britain’s most dangerous prisoners. He had been on the run for two separate accounts of attempted murder. In a maximum security prison, he was locked up in solitary in a special cell with only cardboard furniture and allowed no human contact. Every time he was moved out of his cell it took seven officers with shields and full riot gear. Then an extraordinary miracle stopped him in his tracks. This book reveals the hidden secrets of drug smuggling in prison and gives an account of a descent into madness and revenge, and finally redemption.
Both Shane’s book and documentary DVD are available thanks to his kind offer.
