Can we trust what he says?
New York Times bestselling books have taken the view that the oldest New Testament documents paint a very different picture to later copies. Others are of the opinion original gospel accounts were never intended to be historically accurate. Many people assume that the bias of original NT authors distorted their recollections of Jesus, and Jesus’ words were not put into written form for several decades, allowing distortion to occur.

This is a book for those who like to question and think and who are not satisfied with pat answers. This is an excellent resource for theological faculty and students as well as for anyone genuinely searching for truth. If you have questions or doubts about the identity of the real Jesus or the reliability of the Bible, this is the book for you.

Echoes of Jesus is a very insightful and much-needed book in the area of apologetics. 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.
