This excellent collection of essays evaluates the findings of the Jesus Seminar.

Who is Jesus? What did he do? What did he say? Are the traditional answer to these questions still to be trusted? Did the early church and tradition ‘Christianize’ Jesus? Was Christianity built on clever conceptions of the church, or on the character and actions of an actual person?

These and similar questions have come under scrutiny by a forum of biblical scholars called the Jesus Seminar. Their conclusions have been widely publicized in magazines such as Time and Newsweek. Jesus Under Fire challenges the methodology and findings of the Jesus Seminar, which generally clash with the biblical records. It examines the authenticity of the words, actions, miracles, and resurrection of Jesus, and presents compelling evidence for the traditional biblical teachings. Combining accessibility with scholarly depth, Jesus Under Fire helps readers judge for themselves whether the Jesus of the Bible is the Jesus of history, and whether the gospels’ claim is valid that he is the only way to God.

Jesus Under Fire has won the following awards:

  • Book of the Year (1996, Christianity Today Magazine)
  • Preaching Book Award (1996, Preaching Magazine)
