The biblical worldview is rooted in Scripture, which speaks with authority and logical consistency on matters of epistemology, cosmology and ethics. The earthly words of Christ are an integral component of Scripture, and Jonathan Clerke has provided us a meticulously researched evidentialist account of how the logos of God has been accurately documented and preserved.

Using archaeological records, manuscripts and other early Christian and non-Christian texts, Echoes of Jesus provides a systematic critical examination into the integrity and reliability of the New Testament, and Jesus as the Son of God. Clerke's book is comprehensive and free from jargon, making it accessible and also encouraging readers to delve deeper into the implications of truth. It has been a good resource for my theological studies and personal faith alike.

This book is a valuable addition to the library of anyone interested in Christian apologetics, or indeed anyone who wants to know how Jesus' teaching has been passed down to us. The book has been meticulously researched and is a work of considerable scholarship, yet written in accessible language. It reads like a quest, as Jonathan takes us from the ancient world to today, seeking answers to the questions surrounding the veracity of the Gospels. This book provides the context in which the words of Jesus were recorded and preserved and concludes with the certainty that the Gospels, as we know them today, are trustworthy. A great read, it will also be a useful book of reference.
