"Excellent apologetic for the common man."
Loved it. Would recommend to anyone interested in the historical background and evidence for Jesus Chris
"This book is great!"
So I was searching in Audible for a book on carpentry and I saw this book at the top of the list it was a little misleading because I really did think it was going to talk about carpentry but as I got deeper into it I realized it was a book about Jesus Christ now having read the Bible I do understand many things about Jesus Christ so this was very helpful in my study of Jesus. I only took away one star because I was hoping at some point it would tie in carpentry with the trials of Jesus but it did not, other than that it was a wonderful book!
"skips important concerns"
good narration and decent arguments but doesn't address concerns that the gospels were altered afterwards to conform with the prophecies or that much of the story may have been fabricated afterwards. I feel he uses an unsound premise to build off on, so his following arguments are irrelevant because it's possibly true yet possibly not.
"Well worth the read"
Fast and easy book but we'll put together, I recommend for everyone not just believers.
Much wisdom in such a short book! Worth the read and it's less than $2, but worth more than money can buy!
Chapter(sections) weren't accurate for example chapter six is listed as chapter seven in the audiobook.
Skipped several pages in chapter six including half of pag 64, 65, 66, 67, and half of 68.
I have loved the book so far but I didn't start using the audio version until chapter six. While reading it I noticed he skipped several pages that included some really good stuff. I don't know if this happens again later on but nonetheless it is very annoying and I would greatly appreciate if it could be fixed. Other than that the book is great and I would recommend to anyone.
"love the natural voice of the speaker"
The natural voice of the speaker. Really liked the way he wove real life experience with biblical truth.
love it! I would recommend it for everyone to read. it's very informative. Great read.
"More than a Carpenter is simple but powerful"
Very easy listen and challenges anyone who is not a believer in Jesus Christ to do the research and you too will see He is real and He Loves you!
"More than a carpenter review"
Jack McDowell goes to great links to describe what it means to be a Christian from his perspective. His personal experiences are powerful especially for someone who has seen the work of the Holy Spirit in their own life. Experiencing this testimony from a non-Christian outlook could be quite different, however I believe most of them could relate to his pre-Christian lifestyle and viewpoints.
Thank you Mr. McDowell for the powerful apologetics presented here. I plan on re-reading and notetaking to strengthen my own testimony and historical background knowledge.
"Great Read, highly informative and Engaging."
I'd recommend this for every Christian and Non Christian.
For Christians there is enough bitesize information yo affirm your faithful and aid you when evangelising to atheists and theists of other faiths.
for the atheists this will get you started on evidence that Christ is who he says he is
This is a good book for someone who wants to accept Christianity but still looking for evidence. However, I find the evidence discussed here is a bit lame. The historical "evidence" here depends on the number of texts that support Christianity without validating the reliability of these texts and on a large number of prophecies that we cannot be sure if they were written before or after Jesus.
It is still a good book, trying its best to convince people of the undeniable evidence that it claims exists, while if you want to think objectively and not let yourself taken by the authors verbal excellency, you'll find the evidence as good as that of other religions (I'm trying not to name one). Atheists on the other side do not claim -as far as I know- that science is on their side as the author believes, but they rather refuse religion as an explanation and simply confess that they do not know.
