Book Review: The Jesus Inquest

The Jesus Inquest
The Case For and Against the Resurrection of the Christ
By:  Charles Foster
Published by Thomas Nelson Publishers
Copyright 2010

In his book The Jesus Inquest, author Charles Foster puts forth persuasive arguments from both sides of the question:  was Jesus really resurrected from the dead?  Other questions argued are did Jesus really die?  Was his body stolen?  Did he really physically rise again?  Did the disciples just think they had seen the risen Lord?  Was it all a big cover-up -- they had gone too far and they could not go back on what they said?  Was Pilate in some way involved?  What of the recorded sightings of Jesus in Egypt or India after his death?  What about the Jesus family tomb?  Mr. Foster's "X" and "Y" set forth their case, with their evidence, each arguing strongly the point that Jesus was or was not resurrected. 

I found this to be a very interesting book full of photos and illustrations, information about the Shroud of Turin and the Jesus family tomb, etc.  Extensive notes are included, with all of the sources documented.  Read for yourself and come to the only obvious conclusion -- either you believe what the Bible has to say or you do not.
