The Jesus Inquest by Charles Foster

The single event that most defines Christianity is the Resurrection of Jesus Christ, fulfilling the prophesy of the ultimate sacrifice. Throughout history this event has been a subject of heated debate for both Christians and non-believers. Did it happen? Is the shroud of Turin really Jesus’ shroud? What about the family tomb discovered with bones of Mary and Jesus and other family members with the right names, and DNA? All of these questions and many more can be used to present good arguments for and against this point.

Charles Foster does a wonderful job unbiasedly presenting both sides of the argument. He does not interpret the results or give his opinion about the outcome. He just does a wonderful job presenting just the facts. The reader is then left to make their own opinions with understanding all of the views.

I really enjoyed this book and its ability to layout both sides so well. It is a book that will generate lots of discussions with friends and family. This will be a book that stays in my collection for a long time.

I was given a free copy of this book from for review. I was in no way compensated for a good review and the thoughts and comments above are my own.
