David Limbaugh is a lawyer, nationally syndicated columnist, political commentator, and author of seven New York Times bestsellers, the latest of which is his new book, "The True Jesus: Uncovering the Divinity of Christ in the Gospels." Tuesday on "The Chris Salcedo Show," Chris Salcedo welcomed the author and asked him what impact his book might have on the "Christian skeptic" or atheist.
Limbaugh, a former skeptic himself, believes he knows "what makes skeptics tick." He started by exploring the Old Testament to help readers understand the climate in which Jesus arrived. He then launched into the Gospels, having laid the background for how the events of the ancient Jewish world coalesced.
Chris asked Limbaugh if his book explains seemingly contradictory gospels. The author consolidated all four into one combined narrative, so that readers can understand that the gospels are four different perspectives on the one Jesus, not contradictory stories. "Jesus is fully human and fully God," and different witnesses highlighted different aspects of His life.
Limbaugh also addressed the more modern interpretations of Christ's life and words. He pointed to the overwhelming ancient evidence and documentation of who and what Christ was, which he believes should supersede the conclusions drawn by later movements which were more far removed from the events of history.
