C.S. Lewis posited the famous trilemma regarding Jesus in his book Mere Christianity as to whether Jesus was “a liar, the Lord, or a lunatic.” The two issues of the Areopagus Journals, Jesus- Legend or Lord? Parts1 and 2, answer those questions plus a fourth issue, is Jesus just a legend concocted by groups with agendas.
Part two provides a scholarly response to the various liberal antagonists to the historical Jesus and Christianity such as John Shelby Spong and the Third Quest for the Historical Jesus. Also presented is the case for the historical Jesus and the absolutely essential event of the resurrection of Jesus. Also included, as in all the journals, are several book reviews of important books.
This journal presents crucial information
on the topic of the issue distilled by the authors
as an alternative for those without the time
or the inclination to read numerous books
on the topic.
