Hi David,

It looks like "More Than a Carpenter" is a quick read, so I will check it out.  Here's some reading for you regarding the book:

  What if you are wrong?  What if Jesus is the Son of Man, the Messiah, God incarnate?
  I am not a great debater.  However, I have read a book by Josh McDowell, More Than a Carpenter, that is a short book (128 pages)and presents viable arguements that Jesus is God.
  I would be more than happy to send you a copy if you would be willing to read it.  Mr. Mcdowell has a much more detailed book called Evidence That Demands a Verdict.  This book goes into nearly every facet of Christianity and in my opinion, makes a gr
eat case to show that Jesus is God.
  One of the most convincing arguements that the book makes is rather short, but I think substantial.  11 of the 12 disciples of Jesus, who witnessed his life, death and resurrection, were murdered for thier beliefs. 6 were crucified on the cross, 2 by
sword, 1 by spear, 1 was stoned, and 1 by arrow.
  Why would these 11 men not recant thier testimony when faced with the choice of living on this planet or dying a very painful and slow death (at least for the 6)?  I think the only answer is that they knew with all of thier hearts and mind, that Jesus
 is God.
  I hope and I pray that your eyes will be opened before it is too late.
