An Amazon.com 5-STAR REVIEW of Jesus and the Jihadis: Evans and Johnston have written a much needed work for our times, revealing with factual clarity the theological foundations of the jihadis and the violence historically endemic to the Moslem faith. The Quranic heritage is ably contrasted with the New Testament testimony of Jesus, and the fruits of the contrasting beliefs assessed. The writers have also made a valuable contribution in documenting the importance of social media in spreading the jihadis’ cause. This book is must reading for anyone wanting to understand the most pressing international issue of our day.

From Craig and Jeremiah

Jesus and the Jihadis available today

Everything you need to know about ISIS . . . and don’t.

Go to www.JesusandtheJihadis.com for more information.

The rise of the Islamic State (a.k.a. ISIS, ISIL or “Daesh”) in the last two years and the atrocities this self-proclaimed “caliphate” has committed have stunned the world. Most people in the West have no idea what to make of it. Western leaders have been taken completely by surprise. Many Christians, for the most part, are completely unprepared to discuss ISIS and Islam intelligently. The church continues to suffer from a woefully inadequate understanding of the world’s second largest religion. That ISIS is willing to kill and to kill brutally, to commit heinous acts against men, women, and children, is well known. What is not well known is why they do it. Why the violence? Why do they do these things in the name of God (which is the driving force behind Atheism’s claim that the world would be a much better place without belief in God)? In our quest to answer these questions, and many more, we wrote Jesus and the Jihadis: Confronting the Rage of ISIS – The Theology Driving the Ideologyto serve as a go-to-guide for Christians. Our book releases October 20th and is available at your local LifeWay store or wherever books are sold.

The times in which we live require all Christians to be equipped to engage in meaningful and missional dialogue with Muslims and our book will the church do just that. Therefore, the book has been written in an accessible manner, focused on guiding the reader by the hand through the halls of history showing how the violence and extremism of terrorist groups like ISIS are rooted in a deeply flawed understanding of God and the human condition. Current opinions about ISIS often suffer from a “politically correct” notion that focuses on this group’s practices but ignores its theology.

This book is beneficial for personal study, and it will also make for an excellent resource for Sunday school classes and small group Bible studies. As you read Jesus and the Jihadis, we ask you to please us spread the word about it on social media, in your churches, ministries and universities. Please consider posting a 5-Star review on Amazon. This, of course, is only requested if you love the book and are behind the message. We love hearing from readers and influencers like yourself, so please feel free to contact us and to schedule a Jesus and the Jihadis event for your organization, information can be found at to www.ChristianThinkers.com.

Sincerely yours,

Craig A. Evans and Jeremiah J. Johnston Read More

– Many Christians Do Not Feel Resourced –

 After ten years of serving as the teaching pastor of a mega church,
I noticed we had sincere Christians attending church services weekly,
listening to sermon after sermon, and yet they still did not possess the
confidence to answer the tough questions being asked about Christianity. Most churches rarely address the tough questions plaguing the minds and hearts of their own congregants. 
Many believers struggle with their own “big questions” about
faith and don’t know where to turn for answers. Some are turning
away from their faith all together.
These questions can be so complex and difficult that sincere people
do not even know where to begin. We need informed answers for the
UnAnswered  questions in all of our churches. Unfortunately, many Christians do not feel resourced or equipped to answer the questions people are asking in their own Bible studies. I have taught theological grad students who were uncertain whether it was Billy Graham or Mother Teresa who taught the Sermon on the Mount. So perhaps you understand why I am thrilled about the release of my new book Unanswered: Lasting Truth for Trending Questions (in stores on November! I hope you will take a moment and download Chapter 1 “Questions Have Power.”  – Jeremiah

For Immediate Release:

Dr. Craig Evans, CTS Fellow and Board member, named the John Bisagno Distinguished Professor of Christian Origins at Houston Baptist University

June 10, 2015

Houston Baptist University is pleased to announce that internationally known and respected New Testament scholar, apologist, and author, Dr. Craig A. Evans, will join the faculty as the John Bisagno Distinguished Professor of Christian Origins beginning January 1, 2016.

Dr. Evans is one of the foremost scholars alive today in the study of the historical Jesus, focusing especially on his death and resurrection. Evans has lectured at several prominent universities and seminaries around the world, including Cambridge, Durham, and Oxford in the United Kingdom, Princeton and Yale in the United States, and Hebrew University and Ben Gurion University in Israel. Uniquely skilled to communicate biblical scholarship through the media, Dr. Evans has reaffirmed the uniqueness and supremacy of Jesus Christ to millions of people in 284 television, radio, and print media including Dateline NBC,National Geographic Channel, Discovery Channel, The History Channel, The BBC, New York Times, Global TV, Wall Street Journal, and The Washington Post, as well as most of the national Christian media programs. In addition, Dr. Evans served as consultant for The Bible television miniseries, produced by Mark Burnett and Roma Downey viewed by over 100 million Americans. Dr. Evans has earned his D. Habil. degree at the University of Budapest and his Ph.D. at Claremont Graduate University.

A prolific writer, Dr. Evans has published more than 70 books and over 500 journals, articles and reviews (www.CraigAEvans.com). Dr. Evans’s books have been translated into several languages and reach around the globe (@DrCraigAEvans). His academic and popular books include Fabricating Jesus, From Jesus to the Church: The First Christian Generation, Jesus, The Final Days: What Really Happened (co-authored with N. T. Wright), and Matthew (Cambridge University Press).

HBU president Robert B. Sloan Jr. remarked, “It is exciting to me to see the fruition of Houston Baptist University’sTen Pillars vision as it continues to attract the finest faculty in the world. For most of my academic life I have read, admired, and benefited from the scholarship of Craig Evans. In recent years he has become a dear friend, and now it is a great pleasure to bring Professor Evans and his wife, Ginny, to Houston and to have him as a colleague at HBU. I envision the many ways our University will utilize Dr. Evans’s remarkable scholarship, years of study, archaeological excavation in Israel, and vast international contacts to extend his reach, mentorship, and biblical fidelity to students across the nation and beyond.”

ISIS

CTSLogo-comcopy

Everything you need to know about ISIS . . . and don’t.

Current opinions about ISIS often suffer from a “politically correct” notion which focuses on this group’s ideology but ignores its strict Islamic theology. Releasing later this summer from Destiny Image Publishing, this book by Craig Evans and Jeremiah Johnston is hard-hitting, current, with a redemptive silver lining and offers what no other book does in evaluating ISIS in the current market — analysis of the Islamic theology driving the ideology of ISIS. Meanwhile, ISIS releases 90,000 social media messages per day luring Western youth.

JesusandtheJihadiscover

Jesus and the Jihadis coming soon

The rise of the Islamic State (a.k.a. ISIS or ISIL) in the last two years and the atrocities this organization has committed have stunned the world. Child executioners, pre-teen wives, destruction of antiquities, crimes against humanity, genocide, killing science and progress, terror tweeting, torture, crucifixions, amputations, slavery all in the name of Allah carried out by the enthusiastic blessing of the Caliphate – the first self-styled, self-proclaimed Caliphate in nearly 100 years – characterize this violent movement. Most people in the West have no idea what to make of it. Western leaders have been taken completely by surprise. That this group is willing to kill and to kill brutally, to commit heinous acts against men, women, and children, is well known.

The West is confused, above all the United States where the current President remarked to The New Yorker that ISIS was a “jayvee” team in comparison to Al-Qaeda.  He even referred to ISIS as “un-Islamic,” ignoring ISIS’ strict adherence to their interpretation of the Holy Qur’an, Hadith and Sunna. Is this assessment correct? Is ISIS un-Islamic?

Today’s Christianity suffers due to a woefully inadequate understanding of the world’s second most populous religion, which is estimated at 1.6 billion Muslims globally. Christians are unaware that Jesus – only eclipsed by the Prophet Muhammad – plays a central role in Islamic eschatology.

We will guide the reader by the hand through the halls of history, showing how the violence and extremism of terrorist groups like ISIS are rooted in a deeply flawed understanding of God and the human condition.

Craig Evans and Jeremiah Johnston

Christian Thinkers Society welcomes HBU President Robert B. Sloan, Jr., to the Board of Directors

We are delighted to announce the unanimous appointment of Dr. Sloan to the CTS Board of Directors serving as a regular contributor, speaker and key architect in the ongoing movement. Sloan is known globally as prolific theologian and a great thinker, having a passion for both ministry and higher education, love for both the Church and the world, gifted by God with adept leadership skills to create transformation in cultures that are continually alienated from God. This is a very challenging time for Christians in this country and abroad. We live in a radically skeptical age and there are far too few people who can make the case for Christianity at the highest levels, let alone in their own back yard. Dr. Sloan’s ability to combine creative and communicative excellence with scholarly integrity will further buttress the mission of Christian Thinkers Society to inspire Christians and pastors to become thinkers and thinkers to become Christians. I encourage you to read Dr. Sloan’s bio, follow him on twitter, and like his Facebook page. Christian Thinkers Society is a Resident Institute of Houston Baptist University

This ministry potential will be greatly enhanced by the skills, experience, and vision that Dr. Sloan will bring to CTS. This is a wonderful development!”

– Professor Craig A. Evans, CTS Director and Vice President of Strategic Studies
