Reinventing Jesus- a Brief Review

Reinventing Jesus- What the DA VINCI CODE and Other Novel Speculations Don't Tell You
by J.Ed Komoszewski, M. James Sawyer, and Daniel B. Wallace

At first glance of the title, it would seem that Reinventing Jesus would attract the eye of those sympathetic to liberal "theology", and perhaps intentionally. Upon closer examination and reading, it becomes apparent that RJ is a much needed, educated rebuttal to those views which seek to destroy Christianity by debunking the Biblical Jesus. These respected scholars respond with a systematic, well researched, scholarly apologetic. It stands in complete antithesis to the lack of scholarship and honesty from sources who claim to have found a Jesus divergent from the Biblical records. The authors have brilliantly recorded the information and exposition in an easy to digest format. This book is absolutely vital to those who have heard the voices of the "other side", that is, the media and popular culture, and long for answers.

I often think that the "debunkers" believe they are doing Jesus in particular and mankind in general a favor by freeing Jesus from the accretions laid by that naughty Paul and that nasty church and that impossible Bible.

A dead Jesus whose corpse is torn by wild dogs in a burning garbage dump. That's an image that will undoubtedly revolutionize the world...
