MAN MYTH MESSIAH
Did Jesus Really Exist?
The search for the historical Jesus continues to be headline news. Any speculative theory seems to get instant attention as the debate rages about His real identity and the claims made in His name. Did Jesus really exist? Is there real historical evidence that demonstrates that He lived and actually said and did the things the Gospels record? Is there any validity to the speculative claims that the Jesus story was a myth, borrowed from a variety of pagan cultures of the ancient world?
In this follow-up to the book GOD'S NOT DEAD (that inspired the movie), MAN MYTH MESSIAH looks at the evidence for the historical Jesus and exposes the notions of skeptics that Jesus was a contrived figure of ancient mythology. It also looks at the reliability of the Gospel records as well as the evidence for the resurrection that validates His identity as the promised Messiah. MAN MYTH MESSIAH will be released right before the GOD'S NOT DEAD movie sequel, which will cover the same theme.
GOD'S NOT DEAD
THE EVIDENCE BEHIND THE HIT MOVIE
The goal of GOD'S NOT DEAD: Evidence for God in an Age of Uncertainty is straightforward: to help readers develop “a faith that is real, credible, and strong enough to help others find faith in God.” To that end, Rice Broocks outlines a roadmap that guides seekers to acknowledge the most basic truths of Christianity:
- There is overwhelming and exciting evidence for God’s existence
- The God who exists is indeed the God of the Bible
- God has revealed his nature through his Son, Jesus Christ
As shown during the movie, this is the original book on which the main character bases much of his debate points with the atheistic professor. Persuasive arguments crafted with tools borrowed from logic, science, and philosophy, as well as scripture, solidify the faith of the Christian reader and provide starting points for discussions with skeptics. With clear, easy-to-follow explanations of key concepts and controversies, GOD'S NOT DEAD is apologetics for the twenty-first century, presented in layman’s terms. Readers will be empowered not only to talk about their own faith with confidence but to lead others to a relationship with Jesus.

The 2014 hit movie GOD'S NOT DEAD highlights the challenge many college students soon face on their university campus:
Do they know the evidence for God's existence?
In the movie, college freshman and devout Christian, Josh Wheaton (Shane Harper), finds his faith challenged on his first day of Philosophy class. Josh quickly finds himself at a crossroad, having to choose between his faith and his future, culminating in a dramatic call to action.
Josh's studies on creation include Rice Broocks' bestselling book, GOD'S NOT DEAD - Evidence For God In An Age Of Uncertainty, which contains evidence for the reality of God and his creation our universe.
From the college classroom of GOD’S NOT DEAD to the public square in GOD’S NOT DEAD 2, the name of Jesus is welcomed less and less with each passing day. If Christians don’t take a stand today, will we even have a choice tomorrow?
GOD’S NOT DEAD 2 is the highly anticipated sequel to the beloved Pure Flix movie from 2014 and features an all-star cast. GOD’S NOT DEAD 2 will have audiences standing proudly for what they believe!
Rice Broocks and his most recent book MAN MYTH MESSIAH are featured in the new movie, providing factual evidence for… well… you'll have to go see the movie and find out for yourself!
