By John S. Dickerson
If you are a skeptic who does not believe in God, you are safe here.
If you were raised as a Christian but are no longer sure what you believe, you are safe.
If you like Jesus but not the church, this book is a safe place for you.
If you are tired of Christianity being defined by bigots and political parties, you are safe too.
I have been all these things and more…
I was completely hooked with this book from the very first pages. Hands down, it’s one of the most compelling books I’ve ever read.
In Jesus Skeptic, author and investigative journalist John S. Dickerson shares his ten-year investigation shedding light on the impact Christianity has had in our world, and answers the question: Did Jesus really exist?
Years ago I read and enjoyed The Case for Christ, but this book especially hit home with me. The book is evidence-based, incredibly educational, and never boring. All the facts are laid out in an easy to read format complete with charts, and pictures of people and artifacts. It’s very detailed and well-written. I found so much to learn here and continuously paused throughout the book to jot down facts in my notebook just so I could discuss them with my family later. There’s even a book list for further reading in the back.
This book is good for everyone–believers, non-believers, and all those in between. Yes, the book shows that Jesus did in fact exist, but there’s so much more here. It’s both eye-opening and inspiring, with power to help us all improve our future. Highly recommend.
I’d like to thank the author and publisher for offering this book in a giveaway. This is my own, honest opinion of the book.

Can we know if Jesus actually lived? Have Jesus’s followers been a force for good or evil in history? A respected journalist set out to find the answers–not from opinion but from artifacts. The evidence led him to an unexpected conclusion: Jesus really existed and launched the greatest movement for social good in human history.
A first-of-its-kind book for a new generation, Jesus Skeptic takes nothing for granted as it explores whether Jesus actually lived and how his story has changed our world. You’ll
– learn what heroes like Martin Luther King Jr. and Harriet Tubman believed about Jesus
– discover how Jesus inspired women’s rights, education rights, and modern hospitals
– see visual proofs of Jesus’s impact, never before compiled in one place
– be inspired to continue Jesus’s fight for human rights, justice, and progress
Jesus Skeptic unveils convincing physical evidence that will enlighten seekers, skeptics, and longtime Christians alike. In a generation that wants to make the world a better place, we can discover what humanity’s greatest champions had in common: a Christian faith.
