Who is the Real Jesus?

Uncovering the Truth

by H. Dermot McDonald


Price: £7.99
Publisher:Banner of Truth Trust
Published:June 2012
The world more than often questions who Jesus really is. This title seeks to offer clear understanding. The New Testament gives clear evidence that Jesus Christ is both human and divine. His identity as the Word of God who became flesh is at the very heart of the Christian faith. Yet it is often called into question, by people of other religions and none, who claim that Jesus was just a good man. Even Muslims, who acknowledge Him as a prophet, deny that He is God. This new and adapted edition of McDonald’s compelling book clearly presents the Biblical teaching on the humanity and deity of Christ. A robust and rigorous introduction, it uncovers the truth about the real Jesus, and will help Christian readers to grow in their knowledge of the Son of God.
McDonald is an outstanding scholar and teacher, with an ‘uncompromising fidelity to Biblical truth’. The ‘Real Jesus’ of the title is rather a ‘more realistic’ Jesus, based on a methodologically superior historical study. Dry, if wise christological content.
