Learn about the vast amount of historical evidence available for the trustworthiness of the New Testament — that section of the Bible that discusses Jesus and the first Christians. Many people assume that the original wording of the New Testament has been distorted due to multiple copies being made over hundreds of years. Thus, they conclude that the accounts of Jesus must be mere fables, but nothing could be further from the truth.
This book was written without presuming prior knowledge of Jesus or Christianity. It presents scholarly evidence for the reliability of the New Testament, avoiding technical language and jargon that may be hard for people to understand. The author has supplied a wealth of background information, presented in an engaging way to shed light on the greatest life of all—Jesus Christ.

Echoes of Jesus examines the vital question of the reliability of the New Testament, in particular the Gospel’s record of the words of Christ. It is a wide-ranging and comprehensive study, yet at the same time accessible and readable for those without a scholarly knowledge of the Bible.

Echoes of Jesus is a very insightful and much-needed book in the area of apologetics, particularly as the reliability of the Bible is increasingly challenged. I plan to use it as a text in Australia’s only theologically-accredited Apologetics to Islam course run at the Melbourne School of Theology.

The earthly words of Christ are an integral component of Scripture, and Jonathan Clerke has provided us a meticulously researched evidentialist account of how the logos of God has been accurately documented and preserved.
