Book Description

With over 40 million books sold, bestselling author Josh McDowell is
no stranger to creatively presenting biblical truth. Now, partnering with fellow
apologist Dave Sterrett, Josh introduces a new series targeted at the intersection
of story and truth.

The Coffee House Chronicles are short, easily
devoured novellas aimed at answering prevalent spiritual questions. Each book in
the series tackles a long-contested question of the faith, and then answer these
questions with truth through relationships and dialogue in each story.

In
Who is Jesus, Really?: A Dialogue on God, Man, and Grace, the group of
students now meeting at the coffee house at a college town in Texas come face-to-face
with the implications of the person and works of Jesus Christ. Their questions and
conversations lead them to creatively respond to a well-known Atheist about Jesus'
claims and actions. The other two books in the series: Is the Bible True, Really?
and Did the Resurrection Happen, Really? continue the unfolding story at
the college campus and the coffee house down the road.

About the Author

JOSH MCDOWELL As a young man, Josh McDowell considered himself an agnostic. He truly believed that Christianity was worthless. However, when challenged to intellectually examine the claims of Christianity, Josh discovered compelling, overwhelming evidence for the reliability of the Christian faith. In 1961 Josh joined the staff of Campus Crusade for Christ International. Not long after, he started the Josh McDowell Ministry to reach young people worldwide with the truth and love of Jesus.

DAVE STERRETT is a conference speaker and writer for a movement called I am Second. Along with ministering in churches, high schools, and college campuses, Dave serves as an adjunct professor of New Testament, Philosophy and Apologetics at Liberty University. In addition to the three book series, Coffee House Chronicles, Dave is the author of Why Trust Jesus? (Moody Publishers) and co-author of the book, "O" God, A Dialogue on Truth and Oprah's Spirituality.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyed it in spite of myself! September 4, 2011
Format:Paperback
First let me say as a non-Christian I was expecting something like Strobel's heavily biased "The Case for Christ" - but the engaging writing in this book pulled me in. "Who is Jesus" reads like a novel, centered on the conflict between faith and atheism through living characters with forcible personalities who meet and discuss what we can know about Jesus - whether he was real, whether he was divine, etc. - in coffeeshops and other venues. This is not a preachy, argumentative book. It's an enjoyable and very contemporary story that presents two sides of the debate over the historical Jesus and a glimpse into today's academic climate. Of course the Christians have better arguments and are most knowledgeable in this book than the doubters and skeptics, who are mostly just being outspoken and arbitrary, but I don't doubt the sincerity of the exchange. If you aren't sure who Jesus was and would like to be convinced in your faith, "Who is Jesus" might get you there. No matter what you believe, this book's highly polished style, absorbing writing style and tangible characters are admirable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Solid dialogue exploring who Jesus really is April 29, 2011
By sb
Format:Paperback
Who is Jesus... Really? follows a group of college students who explore the life and validity of Jesus Christ. While the majority of the genuine dialogues are set in a coffeehouse in Texas in modern times, the reader can relate to the questions asked, as well as comprehend the answers that are offered. This book provides verifiable evidence, legal-historical methods and reliable research in order to prove that Jesus was not a liar or lunatic... that in reality, He was, and is, Lord.
Nick, Jessica, Jamal, Mina and Dr. Peterson are several characters who are passionate and excited about sharing their faith and revealing truths about Christ. While scholarly quotes are presented throughout the book, the reader can understand the academic arguments which are presented in a modern dialogue. Realistic questions and circumstances allow the reader to remain engaged and enthusiastic about many topics that are debated on college campuses today. A wonderful book that explores and proves the life of Jesus Christ.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent read! June 19, 2011
Format:Paperback
I found this to be a very engaging read. The book is laid out in a dialogue fashion between 4 college students. Questions are raised about the validity
of Jesus and who He claimed to be. The Atheist club are asking tough questions
and this sparks good conversation and debate. I enjoyed the solid quotes from
well respected teachers and theologians. This book and others in the series
would be a great witnessing tool. I would recommend this book to the person
searching for answers as well as the mature Christian. I received this book
free from Moody Publishers as part of their Blogger Review Program. I was
not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed our
my own.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Read! February 24, 2011
Format:Paperback
The Coffee House Chronicles include three must read books for anyone searching for answers to the questions of "Who is Jesus?" "Is the Bible Really True?" and "Did the Resurrection Really Happen?" These books will give Christians the information they need to witness to unbelievers struggling with these questions and will increase their own faith as the truth is revealed about these three major issues of faith. The books are easy to read and written as dialogue between friends. As you read, you get drawn in and feel like you are sitting at a table in a coffee house listening to the character's conversations. The information is presented in a way that is easy to understand and I found myself not wanting to put the books down. I highly recommend all three of these books!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent! April 3, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read this book because I read the first book in this series and enjoyed it. I personally think this book is even better than the first. It really helped me understand historically who Christ was which
in turn helped me better understand Him as my Savior. Great book!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great job - make sure you get all 3 of these books! April 21, 2011
Format:Paperback
Sterrett and McDowell have done a great job tackling a rather difficult topic and putting the evidence for the life, ministry and miracles of Jesus into a very interesting and informative conversational read. I think the best thing about these books is that it gives the impression that apologetics or speaking to others about what you believe can be a part of normal, everyday conversation with friends, family and co-workers. Highly recommended this and the other books in this 3 book set - Is the Bible True and Did the Resurrection Happen.

Format:Paperback
In the first book of the Coffee House Chronicles series, Is the Bible True... Really?, co-authors Josh McDowell and Dave Sterrett introduced readers to Nick, a freshman student at a State school in Texas who's faith is put to the test when confronted with the hard questions about the reliability of the Bible.

In book two of the series, Who is Jesus . . . Really?, we find Nick has gone on to lead a student Bible Study that meets in a local coffee house and things are great--until the school's atheist club arrives with a series of hostile questions about the identity of Jesus Christ. Among the group's members is Nick's friend Andrea, who had followed him along the journey of discovering the truth about the Bible, but rejected God after the death of a close cousin.

Nick and friends Jamal, Jessica and Mina begin a series of conversations with Andrea and her friends Brett, Scott and Lauren to discover if the claims of Christianity about Jesus are reliable. Along the way, they learn that:

1. If one trusts the historical evidence for the existence of Socrates, Julius Caesar and Alexander the Great, one must also accept the evidence for the existence of Christ. In fact, it can be reasonably argued that there is more evidence for Christ's existence than of any of these men. Likewise, His existence is verified through multiple sources, not only Christian, but Greek, Roman and Jewish. Each source confirms the crucifixion of Christ and the subsequent worshipping of Him as God by His followers.
