The inspirational classic, More than a Carpenter, is now updated for a new generation of seekers with a fresh look, revised material, and a new chapter that addresses questions commonly raised today. Former skeptic Josh McDowell is now joined by his son Sean as they examine the evidence about Jesus. Is he really the Lord he claimed to be? How can we know for sure? More than a Carpenter offers arguments for faith from a skeptic turned believer.
Since its original publication in 1977, this modern classic has sold over 15 million copies, been translated into dozens of languages, and introduced countless people to the real Jesus. Now with new content that addresses questions raised by today's popular atheist writers.

Very easy listen and challenges anyone who is not a believer in Jesus Christ to do the research and you too will see He is real and He Loves you!
Jack McDowell goes to great links to describe what it means to be a Christian from his perspective. His personal experiences are powerful especially for someone who has seen the work of the Holy Spirit in their own life. Experiencing this testimony from a non-Christian outlook could be quite different, however I believe most of them could relate to his pre-Christian lifestyle and viewpoints.
Thank you Mr. McDowell for the powerful apologetics presented here. I plan on re-reading and notetaking to strengthen my own testimony and historical background knowledge.
Love it. One of the best proofs for our Christian faith out there right now. A must read for anyone struggling with Christianity.
The book was written well - but you can't use the bible as your factual proof to support your reasons and theories that you base your arguments - especially for someone who questions the bible as being anything more than a fictional story.
More than a Carpenter left me with a desire to seek God fully. To continue to grow in truth and to weigh all the evidence. It is easy to see how Josh came to his conclusions and I pray that this book will continue to impact skeptics for the glory of His kingdom.
This is a wonderful, well written book that is ready and quick to read. there are a lot of other books that go more in detail about the topics touched on in this book, but they are much longer. This book is perfect as a quick faith promotion for those new Christians, or those still searching for God, we have in our lives.
simple but profound with empirical evidence, check it out for yourself, great story and background and the heart's capacity to forgive once true cognisance of Christ's sacrifice sinks in to transform you
What an amazing story of transformation. I forgot that it's his son doing the narration, because I sort of felt like it was a young version of Josh and not Shawn. The love of God is absolutely trueand building a relationship with Him will change yourlife
"Great Read, highly informative and Engaging."
I'd recommend this for every Christian and Non Christian.
For Christians there is enough bitesize information yo affirm your faithful and aid you when evangelising to atheists and theists of other faiths.
for the atheists this will get you started on evidence that Christ is who he says he is
