Item description for How Firm a Foundation: A Handbook on the Historical Reliability of the New Testament and the Resurrection by C. S. Foster...

Overview
It seems the Christian faith is always on trial. Universities, movies, television shows, the mainstream media, and popular novels often question the authenticity and historical reliability of the New Testament documents as well as the bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ. Often, such critical views of Christianity and its Book are based more on ideology than historical fact. This book is an evidential defense of the two main tenets of the Christian faith: The reliability of the New Testament and the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Using classic literary, historical, and legal methods, Dr. Foster shows that the foundations of the Christian faith are reasonable, credible, reliable, and above all trustworthy. Even more so, the Christian faith does offer the best explanation to the historical event over 2,000 years ago. This book offers strength and conviction to the believer, encouragement and hope for the seeker, and a challenge to the skeptic.

Reviews - What do customers think about How Firm a Foundation: A Handbook on the Historical Reliability of the New Testament and the Resurrection?

Unshakable Foundation  Sep 25, 2004
This book is a very fine review of the evidence supporting the veracity, reliability, and historicity of the New Testament and the central truths of the gospel. This short handbook, written in laymen's language, has many applications and is valuable not only as a summary for theologians and bible school students, but also for adult classes and teenage studies in the church. The truthfulness of the faith we confess is not a matter of simple opinion, but rests upon unshakable foundations when all the evidence is evaluated with an honest mind. This book deserves a careful and a fair reading not only by Christians, but also by all those who seek integrity in their skepticism, agnosticism, or atheism.

A great book for any library!  Sep 2, 2004
This is a great book for any Christian, or person of any other denomination, whose religious institution uses the Holy Bible as a basis for teaching morals and exemplary behaviour. This handbook is convenient yet very scholarly in tone and substance. A valuable addition to any library.

A Superb Defense of the Christian Faith  Aug 22, 2004
A wonderfully concise and astute defense of Christian belief and worldview, this handbook serves as a powerful lesson (or reminder) that the New Testament is not a book of mythology, but is rather a collection of actual eyewitness accounts of events of the highest importance for humanity. Given that so many people are content to simply scoff, or are merely too intimidated to do the work and research necessary, Foster has done believers and non-believers a great service. The multitudes that have been swayed or bullied into seeing the Christian faith as something so fragile that it cannot stand up under serious scrutiny can now stand strong in the fact that it is the critic who has the burden of proof to bear.
 
A Well Organized Defense of Christianity's Historicity  Aug 19, 2004
Dr. Foster uses a logical, well organized approach to presenting the facts of Christianity's historicity. As Dr. Foster puts it so well, he does not ask the reader to "check their brain at the door" but instead asks the reader to come and reason with him!
After reading Dr. Foster's handbook, I feel more equipped to defend the faith to skeptics. I also feel much better prepared to consume popular media presentations on Christianity and the Bible. The handbook does an excellent job of presenting the various biases that can be present in the popular media and at laying bare the flaws in arguments presented by the media.
 
Faith Built on Verifiable Truth and Logic  Aug 19, 2004
At the outset Dr. Foster rightly challenges one of the greatest misconceptions in the popular understanding of Christianity both among believers and non-believers-that Christianity is based purely on blind faith. Then using classic literary, historical, and legal methods he systematically whittles away at this commonly held bias, showing the Gospels and the Epistles to be reliable historical accounts and to contain the only logical explanation of the events of Christ's death, burial, and resurrection.

A wonderfully concise and astute defense of Christian belief and worldview, this handbook serves as a powerful lesson (or reminder) that the New Testament is not a book of mythology, but is rather a collection of actual eyewitness accounts of events of the highest importance for humanity.

Given that so many people are content to simply scoff, or are merely too intimidated to do the work and research necessary, Foster has done believers and non-believers a great service. The multitudes that have been swayed or bullied into seeing the Christian faith as something so fragile that it cannot stand up under serious scrutiny can now stand strong in the fact that it is the critic who has the burden of proof to bear.
