In Jesus on Trial, David Limbaugh applies his lifetime of legal experience to a unique new undertaking: making a case for the gospels as hard evidence of the life and work of Jesus Christ. Limbaugh, a practicing attorney and former professor of law, approaches the canonical gospels with the same level of scrutiny he would apply to any legal document and asks all the necessary questions about the story of Jesus told through Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. His analysis of the texts becomes profoundly personal as he reflects on his own spiritual and intellectual odyssey from determined skeptic to devout Christian. Ultimately, Limbaugh concludes that the words Christians have treasured for centuries stand up to his exhaustive inquiry—including his examination of historical and religious evidence beyond the gospels—and thereby affirms Christian faith, spirituality, and tradition.

When David Limbaugh let his friend Steve know that he had doubts about Christianity, he was surprised by Steve’s response. Instead of a blast of arrogant judgmentalism, Steve responded like a Christian should—with grace and evidence. What has happened since that time is told in this excellent new book. Limbaugh artfully tells his journey from skepticism about Christ to skepticism about skepticism and ultimately to trust in Christ.
David is a lawyer, but he doesn’t write like a lawyer. While he’s intellectually precise, he writes as if he’s sitting across the table from you, anticipating your questions and objections. This is rare for a book of Christian evidences (often called Christian apologetics). Such books often read like technical manuals, but not Jesus on Trial. Limbaugh not only does a masterful job of highlighting the abundant evidence that supports Christianity, his insights into what the scriptures actually say will have you...
In Jesus On Trial, David Limbaugh presents the origins of Christianity, as documented in the Bible, with a logical progression that addresses common doubts and misconceptions. Through thoughtful presentation targeting both unbelievers and Christians harboring unanswered questions, Mr. Limbaugh offers a healthy dose of historical enlightenment along with numerous examples from esteemed apologetics and evangelists. His dexterity in dissecting numerous Bible intricacies and paradoxes with logic and probative research reflects his own doubts and questions over the years. Evidentiary analysis is admirably thorough, yet the heft of evidence never impedes a reader's progress; all referenced footnotes are packaged in the back of the book as fifty pages of Notes---convenient for later study.
As someone raised without religion, only to find it in middle-age, I was quite surprised to learn the numerous facts that support the veracity of the Bible, its writers, and Christ Himself;...
As a former atheist for over 25 years, and a man of science with evidence-based truth seeking mindset, I found my way back to Christianity through scientific evidence, and historical and archeological evidence to the credibility of the biblical accounts. When I read the book "Jesus on Trial" by David Limbaugh, it brought me back to my own journey to faith in such a striking way that I said to myself "I could have written this book". How amazing the Lord works in the lives of people who really seek His truths. I congratulate Mr. Limbaugh for a well written thesis in defense of the Christian faith. The book was clear with convincing arguments, evidence-based and easy to understand by all readers. I highly recommend it to all who care about the truth.
