Format: Hardcover
In "Conspiracies and the Cross", Timothy Paul Jones has written a defense of Christianity against ten of the more popular attacks on Christian faith. These range from some of the scholar Bart Earhman's textural inspired doubts to ideas of other scholars such as Elaine Pagels (Gnostic texts) and John Crossan (idea Jesus may not have been buried) to less serious (but possibly just as influential) attacks such as the Talpiot Tomb and the Jesus Myth ideas. First of all, I should point out that the author is a generally theologically conservative Christian and is writing an apologetics book so don't be expecting a down the middle type of deal. That said, I think the author generally utilizes good arguementation and is obviously well read on the subjects. Many readers may also enjoy Jones's writing style which goes a long way in covering at times complicated material in a manner fit for a lay reader. He also cleverly but non-distastefully utilizes humor. I think this is an excellent introductory book to Christian apologetics and can be quite interesting to those who have already been reading in the field as well. Don't expect a schollarly answer to all of your potential questions, but I can honestly say that this book was both enjoyable to read and has even been rather helpful in a recent internet forum discussion I was involved in. Some of the footnotes are interesting as well and the author offers suggestions of different books to read to further one's studies (he suggests titles on both sides of various issues). Overall, I recommend it.

I read this book in it's ARC form, and actually read it a few times. Dr. Timothy Jones has created a readable yet thorough examination of the most common challenges that are made against the authority of the scriptures.

This is a valuable resource... for decades preachers have been working to demonstrate that Scriptures are relevant. There's nothing inherently wrong with that. However, the debate has shifted-- our culture wants to know if scripture is reliable. This book is a fantastic handbook to advance that argument.

A great book for every Christian to own as a valuable resource. In today's times it seems like we are surrounded by skeptics and bound to have them ask us quesions that are meant to pose doubt to what we believe. This book will enable you to have answers for such questions, and it is always reaffirming to know, and to be able to tell other, what and why we believe.
