Jesus on Trial


To him that overcomes will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne. (Revelation 3:21)

Jesus-on-TrialDavid Limbaugh is a practicing attorney, former professor of law and, of course, the younger brother of Rush Limbaugh. Once a skeptic himself, his new book, Jesus on Trial, describes his faith journey to Christianity and ultimate embrace of Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior.

Jesus on Trial doesn’t actually put Jesus on trial. Rather, it examines the case others have tried and continue to try to make against Him. Then, through personal testimony and Christian apologetics based on evaluation of the facts and theology the book provides Christians with reaffirmation of their faith. It might even help nonbelievers along their journey.

An interesting quote by Mr. Limbaugh during an interview is how, in his view, the actions of nonbelievers support the presence of God. “Part of the reason I am confident we have a God-shaped void is that you will note that so many people who are not religious gravitate toward causes they elevate to quasi-spiritual status and approach them with zeal and fervor. One plausible explanation to me is they are, often unwittingly, trying to fill their innate need to live for a cause greater than themselves. As they deny and reject God, they often end up on bizarre paths, pursuing some utopian mirage that gives them some superficial purpose, but ultimately leaves them spiritually empty.”

Reviewer, Dr. Brian Mattson, who is Senior Scholar of Public Theology for the Center for Cultural Leadership, says, “The openly evangelistic character of the book is incredibly refreshing.” The author “does a fine job debunking the truly absurd narrative that somehow Christian faith is an anti-intellectual affair. It is, in fact, the intellectual faith par excellence.”

In gratitude and as an invitation David Limbaugh says, “What an indescribable blessing to have daily access to the Divine communication of our Maker any time we want.”

“Let the scoffers scoff as I used to, but let them also give it a whirl and see what shakes out.”
