Publisher's Summary

With more than 15 million copies in print, More Than a Carpenter continues to be one of the most powerful evangelical tools worldwide. Josh McDowell's timeless examination of the true nature of Christ and his impact on our lives is one of the best-selling Christian books ever. Written by a former skeptic of Christianity, it answers the tough questions about Christ's deity and the historical reliability of Scripture. In a concise, understandable manner, Josh explains why Christ's claims are true and how that reality can change a person's life.

Not exactly the same as the book ...

Where does More Than a Carpenter Today rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

short, concise, but informative.

What other book might you compare More Than a Carpenter Today to and why?

Other Apologetic books

Which character – as performed by Josh McDowell – was your favorite?

N/A

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

No but it was all informative

Any additional comments?

I had the actual book and was following along. There were many paragraphs and even a chapter that he left out of the audio that was in the book itself. I would get the book as it has a ton of references and sections that for some reason he decided to not include in the audio.

A must read for both skeptics and Christians!

This book is excellent!
The author has much credibility and his writing style is very clear. He was once a non-Christian and tried to prove Christianity as inconsistent and the Bible as fallible and unreliable. On the contrary, he found so much evidence as well as archaeological proof that he changed and became a devout Christian, devoting his life to Jesus.

In this book, he writes about how Jesus was no ordinary religious leader, but had to be GOD and is.

I recommend his other book called "A Ready Defense", which adds a comparison of other religions to Christianity, including Islam, Buddhism, Hindu, Mormonism, cults, etc.

Life changing! Next to the Bible, the best.

Truly the best book for evangelism next to the Bible. I give them away as witnessing tools.

The reading is fast and easy to fall behind.

If you could sum up More Than a Carpenter Today in three words, what would they be?

Amazing content.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

I greatly appreciate the effort of the author but when he is reading it sounds like he is trying to finish it as fast as possible. I love the content but compared to other good narration it is just too fast and hard to follow. Too bad because the content is amazing.

Any additional comments?

Please re-narrate at a more reasable pace. I know this was not deliberate and I appreciate the effort of the author.

hhhmmm, something to think about

Recommended to me by TJ Casey, a first time author for me, a popular, widely distributed book about being a Christian and believing in Jesus Christ as the son of God who was brought into the world to die for our sins. It attempts to serve as a testamonial to be used to answer some of the key questions you might have about what it means to be a Christian. The book tries to answer some of the questions one might be having a hard time believing. A key point in the book I hadn't thought of was Jesus 12 disciples. After the resurrection, the majority of them thought why did I waste so much time following this guy that's now gone, what was the purpose? Then they recommitted and showed they were willing to die for what they believed, what Jesus had taught them. If you have questions about being a Christian, need confirmation or reaffirmation, then give this book a try. It's a short read, the audio version, which the author narrated, is less than 2 hours.

Certainly not C.S. Lewis

Where was the evidence? This guy is just cranking out books, not much substance. Bart Ehrman offers a much better historical perspective.
