    Support for orthodox Christian belief.

    Journalist and biblical scholar Robert J. Hutchinson explores contemporary academic discoveries about Jesus Christ and the Gospels that refute what liberal scholars have assumed and asserted about Jesus over the past two centuries.

    For more than a century, Bible scholars and university researchers have been systematically debunking what ordinary Christians believed about Jesus of Nazareth. But what if the most recent Biblical scholarship actually affirmed the New Testament What if Jesus was not a Zealot revolutionary, or a Greek Cynic philosopher, or a proto-feminist Gnostic, but precisely what He claimed to be: the divine Son of Man prophesied in the Book of Daniel who gave His life as a ransom for many. What if everything the Gospels say about Jesus of Nazareth-His words, His deeds, His plans-turned out to be true? Searching for Jesus changes "what if" to "what is," debunking the debunkers and showing how the latest scholarship supports orthodox Christian belief.

    Robert J. Hutchinson is an award-winning writer and author who studied philosophy as an undergraduate, moved to Israel to learn Hebrew, and earned an M.A. in New Testament from Fuller Theological Seminary.

    Hutchinson's most recent book is Searching for Jesus: New Discoveries in the Quest for Jesus of Nazareth (Thomas Nelson, October 2015) -- an overview of recent archaeological finds and new developments in Biblical scholarship that are calling into question much of what sceptical scholars have assumed and asserted about Jesus over the past two centuries.

    Hutchinson is also the author of The Politically Incorrect Guide to the Bible, which demonstrates how the ideas embedded in the ancient Biblical texts helped give rise to modern science, the development of democratic government, and the global recognition of human rights; When in Rome: A Journal of Life in Vatican City, a Book of the Month Club and Quality Paperback Book Club Selection about life in the Vatican; and The Book of Vices: A Collection of Classic Immoral Tales, a parody of William Bennett's bestseller, The Book of Virtues.
