Examining archaeological, textual and extra-biblical evidence, Gary R. Habermas provides a strong foundation for the existence and deity of Jesus. He begins by surveying the past centuries of Historical Jesus studies, highlighting key figures and offering an informed critique of their arguments. North concludes with a convincing survey of the historical data available to the modern reader. His detailed engagement with early creedal statements, archaeological data, and other witnesses is both reasoned and convincing.

Praise for the Print Edition

This is an up-to-date, timely, and scholarly treatment of a crucial dimension of the Christian faith by one of the foremost historical apologists in America today.
