Item description for The Historical Christ & the Jesus of Faith ' the Incarnational Narrative as History ' by C. Stephen Evans...
The New Testament contains a story about Jesus of Nazareth. The Christian Church has always understood this narrative as the story of the Son of God, who redeemed the fallen human race by his life, death, and resurrection. Contemporary historical scholarship has, however, called into question the reliability of the church's version of the story; can such a story be historically true? After a careful reconsideration of the Enlightenment epistemologies that underlie much historical scholarship, this book argues that it can.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Historical Christ and the Jesus of Faith: The Incarnational Narrative as History?
The Joy of Thinking (or 'Getting Your Brain "Buff"') Aug 3, 2001
C. Stephen Evans 'The Historical Christ & the Jesus of Faith' is of importance not only to Christians of 'liberal' and 'conservative' bent, but to the unchurched thoughtful souls who wonder why the Jesus story matters. In an often rigorous, yet astonishingly accessible manner, Evans unfolds the difficulties facing post-modern humankind in our attempt to understand who Jesus was, and how we can believe. Weighty topics include modernism, epistemological issues, whether or not the Incarnation is logically possible, a discussion on philosophy and miracles, and much much more. Evans is an evangelical scholar, but one need not agree with his worldview in order to find this book a fascinating, challenging, and even edifying read. My heart-felt recommendation!
