Just for the Early Birds
Despite abounding evidence, the super-skeptics come out year after year to challenge the truth of the Resurrection.
What really happened to the crucified body of Jesus of Nazareth?
Using a popular question-and-answer format, Did Jesus Really Rise from the Dead? by Carl Olson (a $14.95 value) examines the historical evidence concerning the fate of Jesus. Did Jesus really die on the cross? If so, what became of his body? Was it stolen? Misplaced? Is the resurrection a cleverly devised plot to found a new religion? Did the disciples of Jesus hallucinate? Is the Resurrection of Jesus a myth developed decades later, after the original disciples' experience of Jesus was distorted by a subsequent generation? Or did Jesus rise from the dead, as he promised and as his disciples came to believe and sacrifice their lives to proclaim?
Carl Olson carefully weighs the evidence with in-depth analysis. This book is perfect for anyone who wants to defend the Resurrection of Jesus with historical evidence. Be prepared to have your thinking challenged by this provocative and insightful book!
Catholic Answers Founder Karl Keating says of this book:
"This is a doubly scandalous book. It's about the greatest scandal in history, the Resurrection of Jesus Christ, and it's a scandal in its own right because it dares to argue (convincingly, I think) that the Resurrection actually occurred and that all the arguments against its historicity have fallen flat, including recent arguments from the New Atheists and others. Did Jesus Really Rise from the Dead? will give delight to believers and distress to unbelievers. What more can one ask?"
This gift is just for the early birds who help get our radio drive off to a rolling start. It will only be available until Monday, May 9, so act promptly!
We’d also like to send you two FREE resources that will help you evangelize in your daily life . . .
True Body, True Blood
“I am the living bread which came down from heaven; if any one eats of this bread, he will live forever; and the bread which I shall give for the life of the world is my flesh" (John 6:51).
Jesus scandalized some of his followers with this statement. How can a man give his flesh to eat?
Many Protestants have a merely symbolic interpretation of the New Testament passages that refer to the Eucharist. In the attempt to make it nothing more than a metaphor, we hear an echo of those Gospel skeptics who found the Lord’s plain meaning too incredible to believe.
In his new audio set Living Bread: A Defense of Christ’s Real Presence in the Eucharist (a $19.95 value), apologist Tim Staples provides the definitive answer to all those who doubt Christ’s real presence in the Eucharist. This four-CD set breaks down the common objections to the Catholic doctrine, and builds a powerful case—from Scripture as well as the teaching and practices of the early Christians—for taking Jesus at his word.
The Eucharist is the source and summit of our faith. Living Bread: A Defense of Christ’s Real Presence in the Eucharist is perfect if you want to deepen your understanding of Christ’s teaching and learn how to draw others to it.
Can We Trust the Gospels?
For well over a hundred years now, many scholars have questioned the historical truth of the Gospels, claiming that they were originally anonymous. Others have even argued that Jesus of Nazareth did not think he was God and never claimed to be divine.
In The Case for Jesus (a $22.95 value), Dr. Brant Pitre, the bestselling author of Jesus and the Jewish Roots of the Eucharist, goes back to the sources—the biblical and historical evidence for Christ—in order to answer key questions, including:
- Were the four Gospels really anonymous?
- Are the Gospels folklore? Or are they biographies?
- Were the four Gospels written too late to be reliable?
- What about the so-called “Lost Gospels,” such as “Q” and the Gospel of Thomas?
- Did Jesus claim to be God?
- Is Jesus divine in all four Gospels? Or only in John?
- Did Jesus fulfill the Jewish prophecies of the Messiah?
- Why was Jesus crucified?
As The Case for Jesus will show, recent discoveries in New Testament scholarship, as well as neglected evidence from ancient manuscripts and the early church fathers, together have the potential to pull the rug out from under a century of skepticism toward the traditional Gospels. Readers will find their faith reawakened as they come to understand the divine claims of Jesus of Nazareth in their ancient Jewish context.
“This book will prove to be a most effective weapon… against the debunking and skeptical attitudes toward the Gospels that are so prevalent, not only in academe, but also on the street, among young people who, sadly, are leaving the Churches in droves.” – Robert Barron, author of Catholicism
Finally, if you’re able to make a gift of $500 or more, we’d also like to send you something very special . . .
