Lord or Legend? puts skeptics' claims to the test against multiple scholarly disciplines--including history, ethnography, anthropology, and folklore--to uncover fascinating truths about the historical Jesus.
The Christian apologetic of "Lord, Liar, or Lunatic" made famous by C. S. Lewis has gained recent skepticism. Many twenty-first-century critics of Christianity believe the biblical portrait of Jesus Christ is based on myth. Lord or Legend? puts skeptics' claims to the test against multiple scholarly disciplines--including history, ethnography, anthropology, and folklore--to uncover fascinating truths about the historical Jesus. Authors Gregory A. Boyd and Paul Rhodes Eddy address pressing questions like: • Was first-century Judaism an environment for pagan mythological beliefs? • How are the Gospels accurate if they originated through oral tradition? • Do similarities between Jesus and other myths discredit Christianity? • Are the Scriptures historically accurate? Biased? Translated accurately? • Do archeological findings support or refute biblical accounts? Lord or Legend? is written in an accessible form for all lay readers whether believers in or skeptics of Christianity.
