--Dr. Michael S. Heiser, Scholar-in-Residence, Faithlife / Logos Bible Software, author of The Unseen Realm: Recovering the Supernatural Worldview of the Bible, and host of the Naked Bible Podcast "In The True Jesus, the Son of God of the Gospels truly comes alive for readers. This is the Case for Christ from the life of Jesus Himself--and Limbaugh tells it in a way that will inspire you to read and study the Gospels like never before."
--Lee Strobel, bestselling author of The Case for Christ and The Case for Faith "How could an ancient carpenter from the tiny town of Nazareth be the most influential human being to ever walk the earth? Who was Jesus and how does His life affect yours? Like a captivating tour guide, David Limbaugh leads you through the brilliant and sacrificial life of Jesus of Nazareth and inspires you to connect your life with the Savior--the true Jesus. There are few books better about life's most important topic!" --Frank Turek, founder and president of www.CrossExamined.org
"David Limbaugh strikes again. The True Jesus is a brilliant, must-read book on the real Jesus of Scripture destined to be another bestseller. If you have faith, it will deepen it; if you don't, you just might change your mind after reading it." --Sean Hannity, host of The Sean Hannity Show and Fox News Channel's Hannity

I appreciate that Mr. Limbaugh has included the history of Israel during the period between the end of the Old Testament and the beginning of the New Testament (the intertestamental period) and that of the years of the early Church. I have studied the Bible over the years but have never focused on the period which is not covered in it nor of the beginnings of the Church itself. Mr. Limbaugh's history of these periods are informative, interesting, and helped explain the social and historical context of the time in which Jesus was born, ministered, died and was resurrected as well as the time in which the Church began and grew.
For me, reading has always been how I seek information and books which answer my questions are ones that I appreciate the most. “The True Jesus” is just the type of book that I will want to keep on hand and provide to others who are asking and seeking answers. My personal copy is on a Kindle as I appreciate being able to change the font size and to add audible narration to it; however, I like to purchase and gift hardcover and paperback books to others.
I have not read Mr. Limbaugh's other books but I will certainly be seeking them out. I'm reminded so much of Lee Strobel's “The Case for Christ”, not that these books are duplicative in nature but rather they are similar in subject and in the clear cut and modern voice in which they are written. It doesn't take a theological background in order to read and understand this book. It takes an open mind and a seeking heart.
By W E Johnson
I just started reading the book. I have read through the Bible three times in my 73 years. David's book is like having someone read the Bible to you, but explain all of it, like a gentle easy going friend.
What I liked:
1. Theologically rock solid.
2. The author is extremely even handed and careful in his interpretations.
3. The other scholars, writers, and pastors he cites (as far as I'm familiar) are all highly respected.
4. He treats all scholarly viewpoints with great respect.
5. Although the book appears to be primarily from an evangelical perspective - he even cites Catholic and Lutheran opinion.
6. The structure of going chronologically vignette to vignette.
Where it could use improvement:
1. I felt some sections did not have enough actual bible text quoted - forcing the reader to reach for his bible (if they have one).
2. I felt sometimes the author would go down rabbit trails discussing various theological positions (although in general this is a strength)
3. The book is described as 256 pages - it's really 353 or about 450 total with notes etc. Could this be too much for the casual seeker?
To summarize, I enjoyed this book and author helped me to see some things more clearly. I would definitely recommend this book, however, I'm not sure if it's the first book I'd offer to the casual seeker. For those really trying to understand Jesus from a true theological perspective, this book definitely succeeds.
