In Jesus on Trial, David Limbaugh applies his lifetime of legal experience to a unique new undertaking: making a case for the gospels as hard evidence of the life and work of Jesus Christ. Limbaugh, a practicing attorney and former professor of law, approaches the canonical gospels with the same level of scrutiny he would apply to any legal document and asks all the necessary questions about the story of Jesus told through Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. His analysis of the texts becomes profoundly personal as he reflects on his own spiritual and intellectual odyssey from determined skeptic to devout Christian. Ultimately, Limbaugh concludes that the words Christians have treasured for centuries stand up to his exhaustive inquiry—including his examination of historical and religious evidence beyond the gospels—and thereby affirms Christian faith, spirituality, and tradition.

David Limbaugh's Jesus on Trial: A Lawyer Affirms the Truth of the Gospel (Regenery 2014) is a lawyer's Christian apology - a full throated defense of the Gospels. In a sweeping effort, Limbaugh covers diverse topics from textual and archaeological analysis, to the philosophy of truth and theoretical physics, applying the rules of evidence and legal standards of proof. Each step of the way, Limbaugh engages liberal critics who, as he puts it, are attacking the authenticity of the Bible as the genuine expression of God's Word. In short, Limbaugh seeks to apply his legal skills to prove, beyond a reasonable doubt, the truth of the proposition "Jesus is God." As such, Jesus on Trial is a must read for every conservative evangelical Christian. For others, as one critic says, it provides food for thought.If your bible study group or book club is taking up Jesus on Trial, this reader's guide will serve as a discussion aid.

In seinem Buch »Der Ursprung des Christentums« entwickelt der marxistische Theoretiker und Historiker Karl Kautsky (1854-1938) ein detailreiches Bild von Staat und Gesellschaft des frühen römischen Kaiserreichs, das mit der Gründungszeit des Christentums zusammenfällt. Großen Wert legt Kautsky dabei auf die Darstellung der religiösen und vor allem wirtschaftlichen Situation der unteren Gesellschaftsschichten, die sich durch die christliche Heilsbotschaft besonders angesprochen fühlten.
