Finding Jesus: Faith. Fact. Forgery.: Six Holy Objects That Tell the Remarkable Story of the Gospels

  • “Finding Jesus” begins with the Shroud of Turin, the ancient cloth reputed to have been used to wrap Jesus’ body. “The most famous man ever to live left no physical trace. Or did he?” the narrator asks near the outset.

    Finding Jesus features participation from many pious Christians who are “deeply invested in the Jesus story,” according to Dr. Moss. “When they’re speaking… you get a sense of real passion and belief and religious fervor.”

  • However, if you are fascinated by history, ancient artifacts, and contextualizing biblical stories, Finding Jesus may be an excellent resource for you. In an interview with Crosswalk, Dr. Moss acknowledged that “the broader public may not have the time or the inclination to read scholarly tomes,” so high-quality documentaries that explain and explore the current research are excellent ways to become informed.

    Viewers shouldn’t be afraid to find experts and archaeologists trying to rip away foundations of biblical Christianity. Nothing hostile awaits. At the same time, don’t expect to be given infallible historical proof that will convert your atheist neighbor. We can carbon date, hope, wish, doubt, and theorize – but at the end of the day, your own sensibilities will likely guide you when it comes to Finding Jesus. Skeptics can appreciate the forgeries, information gaps, and humility shown by the filmmakers. Believers may find comfort in the unexplained mysteries, the stories told, and the grey areas faith can fill.

    This was a fascinating account of a devout Muslim, Nabeel Qureshi, finding Jesus and his strenuous path to acceptance. I have had the pleasure of hearing Nabeel speak with Dr. Ravi Zacharias, both great thinkers with great hearts. Nabeel's serious, intellectual struggles are thoroughly explored, a great read for those who have a theology background. I did want the "Wow" moments to stand on their own instead of being bogged down in lengthy explanations sometimes.  I stayed up waaaaaay past my bedtime to finish this one, though, a good sign. The second I was done with this book a friend nabbed it from me to borrow, another good sign.  I would definitely recommend it to anyone, just beware that it’s a bit intellectual and not light reading for the beach by any means. That doesn’t mean you should shy away—instead, jump right in. Learn how to better pray and make friendships that open doors. Nabeel, while an incredibly smart writer, is also warm and welcoming and won’t leave you hanging as a reader. In the end, Nabeel has to come to grips with what he is studying and what God is laying on his heart…despite the consequences that still haunt him. What a story! (Dislosure: I received a complementary copy of this book from the BookLook Bloggers program).

    Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus, clearly explains the differences between Islam and Christianity. The reader becomes involved in the intellectual pursuit of verifying what beliefs are true. The author has included many quotations from scholars that have researched this subject.

    Christianity remains a hot topic on TV, even for cable news. As other networks (NBC, Nat Geo) ready scripted outings about Jesus Christ timed to the upcoming Easter holiday, CNN got a jump on the religious rush this Sunday night with the premiere of its new doc series, Finding Jesus.

Whether he’s trekking a ‘scenic trail’, attending an unconventional wedding, strolling the aisles of a supermarket, enjoying a movie at the cinema, or playing tourist in the Museum of Aviation, it’s never been more enjoyable trying to find Jesus. Rowntree’s cartoon illustrations are a joy to study, as you try to find the ellusive Son of God hiding within each scene.
