In Jesus on Trial, New York Times bestselling author 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 enquiry - including his examination of historical and religious evidence beyond the gospels - and thereby affirms Christian faith, spirituality, and tradition.

What a disappointment
I had no problem with the narration. It was fine. It's the content I found disappointing
His story needed to be more cohesive. Almost every three or four sentences there was a quote, either from the Bible or from some source Mr. Limbaugh found credible or interesting. After a while it was very hard to keep track of the point he was trying to make. The ad for this book claims Mr. Limbaugh, as an "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." The book does no such thing, or at least it did not seem to me that it does. Instead the book appeared to be a series of assertions by the author, followed by biblical passages that support these assertions.
I did not like any particular passage from the book.
The ad for this book is misleading.
