On His Throne
Putting Jesus in His Place: The Case for the Deity of Christ
by Robert M. Bowman, Jr., and J. Ed Komoszewski
(392 pages, $18.99, paperback)
reviewed by Fred Sanders
The case as perceived by scholars for the deity of Christ is stronger now than it has been for a long time, and those who went through seminary more than a decade ago should take a moment to update their notes. Though the New Testament is clear about the deity of Christ, generations of modern critical scholars have picked away at the standard proofs. Here a verse, there a verse, the arguments that Christians have always relied on to demonstrate that the New Testament teaches that Jesus is God have been rendered dubious.
