The Case for Historic Christianity
by Edward C. Wharton
This book is an excellent resource to have in your library. It is a great introduction to historical Christian evidences. Edward Wharton does a great job of giving the reader a concise view of "Historical Christianity". He touches on two very important themes. The reliability of the N.T. scriptures and the evidence of Jesus resurrection. I think even a sceptic could come away from reading this book with the understanding that Jesus was a real person in history and that the things written about him are true.
I highly recommend this book. It would be a great gift for someone with a lot questions about the bible and its historical reliability.
