I have to admit CAL vs. Armin, eschatology, LS vs. Free Grace, Alcoholic Beverages, and Bible translations causes lots of division on this board. Perhaps a new type of discussion is needed and one that all christians can agree on. At the Calvinist men's fellowship a brother was strongly recommending a new book on the resurrection of Christ by Josh McDowell called The resurrection factor. I do not have the book and frankly do not want to buy anymore books. I checked my library and have the book Resurrection by Hanagraaf which may include all the same information. Or does it? We live in a day of skepticism and being a street evangelist and engaging in apologetics as I do often perhaps it may be wise to get to know this kind of a topic better. Skeptics do not care about the CAL vs. Armin debates that dominate almost every post on this board. I do not usually have answers to these kinds of debates with skeptics on the street but instead use the 10 commandments and if they do not want to hear it, I conclude that they may not be elect, however perhaps a foolish move. Anyways I am aware that liberal scholars try and discredit the historical Jesus and say He was not whom he said He was, as well as the resurrection of Christ. Has anyone studied more into this field of study and can you educate us or myself please? I am humble and am not all that knowledgeable in this area of theology other than what the Bible tells me. But I have not studied nor read a book on the historical Jesus or the resurrection.
