Josh McDowell's timeless examination of the true nature of Christ and his impact on our lives is one of the best-selling Christian books ever. Written by a former skeptic of Christianity, it answers the tough questions about Christ's deity and the historical reliability of Scripture. In a concise, understandable manner, Josh explains why Christ's claims are true and how that reality can change a person's life.

Not the original

It was good but having read the original over 10 years ago Anamar still inspired by it today. It doesn’t compare. However any book that can touch the soul of 1 person to repent and turn to
Jesus is a good book.

Wow

This book is so rich and full of theological information that isn’t overwhelming to understand! My favorite part of the book is how after Josh gives all the facts that Jesus is exactly who He said He was, he shares his testimony!

Many of the arguments are based on flawed logic

Many of the arguments made in the book are based on flawed logic. If picking up on this will undermine your potential acceptance of other possible valid arguments, this book is not for you.

The narration is conversational, which many times is nice because it seems more genuine. However, the author tends to speak quickly running his words together, which can make it difficult to listen to, even slowed down.

Concise, Descriptive, Lucid

I had heard a lot about this book, mostly from David Wood, and Nabeel Qureshi's Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus. Excellent introductory apologetics book with sound evidence for Christianity. Recommended.

Not exactly the same as the book ...

Where does More Than a Carpenter Today rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

short, concise, but informative.

What other book might you compare More Than a Carpenter Today to and why?

Other Apologetic books

Which character – as performed by Josh McDowell – was your favorite?

N/A

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

No but it was all informative

Any additional comments?

I had the actual book and was following along. There were many paragraphs and even a chapter that he left out of the audio that was in the book itself. I would get the book as it has a ton of references and sections that for some reason he decided to not include in the audio.

Great book but let down by the false doctrine

Solid content and really helpful but really disappointing to see that Josh puts forward the sinners prayer as the way to get right with God which isn't what the Bible teaches. Jesus never taught that and nor did the apostles. Nor do you see any accounts in the Bible of someone getting saved in that way.

a quick little book on why we chose Jesus Christ.

this book is brilliant and short. it touches on all the important aspects of defending Christianity with the right conclusion that "Christianity/being like Christ isn't something to be shoved down people's throats"
