A 1,000 Word Argument for Christianity

I was once asked to provide a concise, no more than 1,000 word essay, on why I believe Christianity to be true.  I think the hint was that I can be a little too verbose.  🙂  As I recall, this essay was well received, if only because it met the terms of the request.  I just found it on my hard drive, sitting around and playing video games, and otherwise being unproductive.  No sense in having that.  It was originally posted on my forum.  Feel free to use it yourself (with appropriate crediting, of course) and if you have questions, … continue reading...

New Archeological Find Proves Christianity is a Fraud. Again.

You hear about these kinds of things every now and then.  I’m blogging on an article I saw today on a tablet they are calling “Gabriel’s Revelation.”  Here it is.

This is the first that I’ve heard of this tablet and haven’t seen the text allegedly inscribed on it.  I only have what is in the article, so I’m going tread lightly on the stone’s implications as evidence for or against Christianity.  What I found really interesting was the glimpse into the scholarly community and its approach to research into the Historical Jesus.  Let me just issue some running commentary.… continue reading...

A Christian review and response to John Dominic Crossan’s The Historical Jesus

A Review of

John Dominic Crossan’s

The Historical Jesus

By Anthony Horvath

ALL RIGHTS RESERVED.  NO PLAGIARISM.  COPYRIGHT 2007 ANTHONY HORVATH.
Introduction

While in Strasbourg attending the Apologetics Academy under Dr. Montgomery we spent a fair bit of time talking about ‘the historical Jesus’ and scholarship on the subject both in the past and in recent times. I decided that further study in that area would be beneficial. For that reason, I chose to review John Dominic Crossan’s 507 page The Historical Jesus. This review will summarize Dr. Crossan’s methodology and his conclusions, present a handful of criticisms that … continue reading...

Jesus: The Greatest Con Man to Ever Live

The Great Jesus Conspiracy

(AKA, Christians are either wicked, or fools, sometimes both)

Copyright Anthony Horvath 2004


How the document transcribed below came to me I cannot divulge. My hope is that I can get it into the mainstream before my fate becomes like those of the original author, and those that followed. You will soon see what I mean. In order to maintain my integrity I need to point out that though I received the document as a whole, it seems that the document really recorded fragments. I took the liberty… continue reading...

A Review of Anne Rice’s “Out of Egypt”

Also read my extensive review of Rice’s “Road to Cana.”


Long time atheist Anne Rice (author of “Interview with a Vampire”) became a Christian a few years back and got it into her head that she wanted to write about Jesus’ life from a 1st person perspective… uh… Jesus’ perspective. Pretty brave, if you think about it. Anyway, the first installment is “Out of Egypt” and details Jesus’ life from Jesus’ perspective from his time in Egypt as he moved back to Nazareth in Galilee.

In the back of the book she has some notes which were very … continue reading...

A Review of Lee Strobel’s Soon to be Released ‘The Case for The Real Jesus.’

Buy the Book, “The Case for the Real Jesus”

Strobel’s newest book was released September 10th, of 2007 and I was pleased to be offered a chance to review it prior to its release. I completely agree with Strobel on the need for such a book. It covers a lot of issues that I deal with on a daily basis in my own apologetics ministries. There is far too much information in the book to expect a comprehensive treatment, and like his other books, he doesn’t pretend to do so. Each chapter has a number of resources that readers can … continue reading...
