Product description


Rev Dr John Sweetman, D.Min (USA); Principal of Malyon College, Brisbane: This is a book for those who like to question and think and who are not satisfied with pat answers. This is an excellent resource for theological faculty and students as well as for anyone genuinely searching for truth. If you have questions or doubts about the identity of the real Jesus or the reliability of the Bible, this is the book for you.

Dr Bernie Power, D.Th, lecturer in Islamic Studies: Echoes of Jesus is a very insightful and much-needed book in the area of apologetics. I plan to use it as a text in Australia's only theologically-accredited Apologetics to Islam course run at the Melbourne School of Theology.

Dr James M. Leonard, PhD (Cambridge), former Adjunct Professor (LSU, Notre Dame Seminary, Loyola University, John Brown University, Arkansas, US): This well written work on the biblical account of the historical Jesus exposes the reader to key issues that are often overlooked in popular Christian apologetics. It raises the believer's confidence levels in the reliability of the Gospels and the apostolic writings, and should be taken seriously by scholars.

Rev. Dr. Bernard Low, former Associate Professor in Systematic Theology at Singapore Bible College; PhD (University of Nottingham): For anyone interested in the truth claims of Christianity, this book by Jonathan Clerke is a helpful and interesting read and an excellent resource. Based on extensive, robust and systematic research of primary and secondary sources, the author persuasively argues that the New Testament accurately and faithfully records what Jesus said and taught in his lifetime. Clerke's research establishes the following: (a) there was a high-level of literacy in the ancient world including Jesus's; (b) people in the ancient world were not as gullible as critics of Christianity have claimed; (c) ancient historians were both professional and credible in their task of recording history; (d) as a master-teacher, Jesus employed methods which facilitated the remembrance and easy recall of his teachings; (e) the autographs of the New Testament were faithfully transmitted despite variant readings and textual traditions; and, (f) extra-biblical sources like Lucian, Pliny the Younger and Josephus contain reliable evidences which attest to the veracity of the New Testament. Clerke has done a great service to the church in writing this book to defend the truth claims of Christianity. His research has also significant implications for Christian-Muslim dialogue.

P Jayawardhana: 'Echoes of Jesus' is a 'must-have' book for all those interested in the person of Jesus, the credibility of the Bible, and in particular the New Testament. Written in an easy-to-understand and logical format Jonathan answers the pertinent questions a person may have about literacy in the ancient world, the teaching methods of Jesus, and the amazing accuracy and credibility of the New Testament accounts as well as including a selection of ratifying evidence for Jesus from early Christian and non-Christian witnesses. Whether you're a layperson wanting for proof for Jesus or a theological student researching the accuracy of the Bible 'Echoes of Jesus' will more than satisfy your needs.
