This book will prove to be a most effective weapon against the debunking and skeptical attitudes toward the Gospels that are so prevalent, not only in academe, but also on the street, among young people who, sadly, are leaving the Churches in droves.  Robert Barron, author of Catholicism

For well over a hundred years now, many scholars have questioned the historical truth of the Gospels, claiming that they were originally anonymous. Others have even argued that Jesus of Nazareth did not think he was God and never claimed to be divine.
In The Case for Jesus, Dr. Brant Pitre, the bestselling author of Jesus and the Jewish Roots of the Eucharist, goes back to the sourcesÔÇöthe biblical and historical evidence for ChristÔÇöin order to answer several key questions, including:

ÔÇó Were the four Gospels really anonymous?
ÔÇó Are the Gospels folklore? Or are they biographies?
ÔÇó Were the four Gospels written too late to be reliable?
ÔÇó What about the so-called ÔÇ£Lost Gospels,ÔÇØ such as ÔÇ£QÔÇØ and the Gospel of Thomas?
ÔÇó Did Jesus claim to be God?
ÔÇó Is Jesus divine in all four Gospels? Or only in John?
ÔÇó Did Jesus fulfill the Jewish prophecies of the Messiah?
ÔÇó Why was Jesus crucified?
ÔÇó What is the evidence for the Resurrection?
As The Case for Jesus will show, recent discoveries in New Testament scholarship, as well as neglected evidence from ancient manuscripts and the early church fathers, together have the potential to pull the rug out from under a century of skepticism toward the traditional Gospels. Above all, Pitre shows how the divine claims of Jesus of Nazareth can only be understood by putting them in their ancient Jewish context.
