The Jesus Inquest by Charles Foster

The folks at BookSneeze are sending me a review copy of The Jesus Inquest: The Case For and Against the Resurrection of Christ by Charles Foster. This will go well with two other books I plan on reading throughout 2011: The Resurrection of Jesus by Michael R. Licona and The Resurrection of the Son of God by N.T. Wright. I am anticipating some great posts on the subject of the resurrection!

The blurb on Foster’s book is as follows:

An unbiased examination and compelling courtroom presentation revealing the undeniable facts of the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

Intelligent, fair, and remarkably compelling, The Jesus Inquest argues the case both for and against the resurrection of Christ. Point-by-point, Foster, in turn as both barrister X and Y, leaves no theological stone or dissenter’s rock unturned as he digs for answers and the truth. In the end he is more convinced that Jesus is real, that He did rise again, and that He lives to offer forgiveness and hope to all who come to Him.

While “unbiased” is probably an overstatement, I think it will be a quality read none-the-less.
