Book Description: 

In Jesus on Trial, David Limbaugh applies his lifetime of legal experience to a unique new undertaking: making a case for the gospels as hard evidence of the life and work of Jesus Christ. Limbaugh, a practicing attorney and former professor of law, approaches the canonical gospels with the same level of scrutiny he would apply to any legal document and asks all the necessary questions about the story of Jesus told through Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. His analysis of the texts becomes profoundly personal as he reflects on his own spiritual and intellectual odyssey from determined skeptic to devout Christian. Ultimately, Limbaugh concludes that the words Christians have treasured for centuries stand up to his exhaustive inquiry—including his examination of historical and religious evidence beyond the gospels—and thereby affirms Christian faith, spirituality, and tradition.


This is a fantastic book on Apologetics.  The author gives you so much information on defending the gospel, written as only a lawyer can.  He writes from his own perspective, drawing on his personal journey of faith and his research is impeccable and well documented.  This is a book you will want to keep in your personal library to refer to often.  It also makes a great book to study in a small group.  I was very impressed.
