The Jesus Who Never Lived by H. Wayne House is a fantastic look at the real Jesus. I love reading apologetics, and I've read quite a few. This book stands head and shoulders above the rest with its logical approach to finding the real Jesus and it's use of layman's language for understandability. There have been multiple attacks on Jesus, and they usually surface around Christmas and Easter, just as Christians around the world prepare to celebrate his life and death. Jesus has been portrayed as a wise do-gooder, an apocalyptic zealot, and a man who took his wisdom from Buddha and other Eastern sources. Wayne's scholarship is solid and actually makes for an enjoyable as well as informative read. He discusses how Jesus was viewed in his own lifetime by the disciples, his family, and Jewish authorities, then moves on to how he was viewed shortly after his death, all the way up through how the media portrays him today in popular movies. While there was never any doubt in my mind about who Jesus really is vs how he's thought of today, I think that Wayne could win over those who are not as firm in their ideas as to who Jesus was and is. It's a perfect book for refuting those who insist that the historical Jesus is different than the Biblical Jesus, as well as for encouraging Christian's knowledge about the Man from whom they take their name.<br/>
