Dr. Brant Pitre and The Case for Jesus: The Biblical and Historical Evidence for Christ

January 29, 2016

Dr. Brant Pitre joins me today on The Catholic Foodie Show to discuss his new book (to be released February 2, 2016) entitled The Case for Jesus: The Biblical and Historical Evidence for Christ. In The Case for Jesus, Dr. Brant Pitre, bestselling author of Jesus and the Jewish Roots of the Eucharist, taps into the wells of Christian scripture, history, and tradition to ask and answer a number of questions about the origins and validity of the Gospels as well as one big question: Did Jesus of Nazareth claim to be God?

Though a seminary professor of Sacred Scripture, Dr. Brant Pitre is also a husband and father of five, and this book is written in plain language that everyone can understand. With his signature enthusiasm and with a deep love for both Jesus and the reader, Dr. Pitre offers compelling reasons for concluding that the four Gospels are first-century biographies of Jesus, written within the lifetime of the apostles and based directly on eyewitness testimony. 

Buckle your seatbelt and get ready for an exciting ride to answer the question of a lifetime asked by Jesus, “And you, who do you say that I am?”
