In Jesus on Trial, New York Times bestselling author 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 enquiry - including his examination of historical and religious evidence beyond the gospels - and thereby affirms Christian faith, spirituality, and tradition.

Thank you for writing such a great book !!!
JESUS is an incredible GOD and we as believers need to READ OUR BIBLE and study Christ as much as we can!! It is a life journey I am proud go be on !!!!!!!
Sharpen Your Apologetics
I got this book to help me sharpen my apologetics. I agree with almost everything Limbaugh writes. It is Biblically based and presents opinion as opinion and doctrine as doctrine.
One of the things I was most impressed with is how gracious he is in refuting skeptics arguments. He used to be a skeptic himself so he knows exactly how to tackle and refute your objections while remaining calm and extremely gracious. He presents the hardest questions asked, then answers them in about as clear a language as any I have read. A superb read.
I am grateful to Mr. Limbaugh for compiling such a book. I am 22 years old and have a better understanding of how to answer all of the questions I will be asked as I become more open about my Christianity.
