I didn't get a chance to read the book which inspired the popular movie "God's Not Dead," but I did watch the movie and absolutely loved it. In a culture like we live in where everyone depends on themselves it can be very easy to overlook the fact that we are all created beings, and if we are created beings there much be a creator. I once believed the talk about science and evolution being the reason humans are here, I mean come on we DO look a lot like gorillas. But there was always a hole, a void, something missing.
When I saw this title "Man, Myth, Messiah" on the list of books to read and review for Book Look Bloggers, I was interested, but when I saw this was the inspiration behind the second God's Not Dead movie I became even more interested. The book was written by Rice Brooks and allow me to say, he is a wonderful writer.
Here is the excerpt from the Amazon page to give you a sneak peak into the book without giving any spoilers away.
"The search for the historical Jesus continues to be headline news. Any speculative theory seems to get instant attention as the debate rages about His real identity and the claims made in His name. Did Jesus really exist? Is there real historical evidence that demonstrates that He lived and actually said and did the things the Gospels record? Is there any validity to the speculative claims that the Jesus story was a myth, borrowed from a variety of pagan cultures of the ancient world?
In this follow-up to the book God’s Not Dead (that inspired the movie), Man, Myth, Messiah looks at the evidence for the historical Jesus and exposes the notions of skeptics that Jesus was a contrived figure of ancient mythology. It also looks at the reliability of the Gospel records as well as the evidence for the resurrection that validates His identity as the promised Messiah. Man, Myth, Messiah will be released concurrent to the God’s Not Dead movie sequel, which will cover the same theme."
I thoroughly enjoyed this book and really found it insightful and beneficial. If you are looking for a new book to read, I suggest giving this one a try.
