In Betting on Jesus, Joseph Stuber takes his considerable investigative skills as a researcher in the fields of economics and stock markets,and applies those skills to an exhaustive analysis of the Bible in an attempt to overcome the arguments of skeptics who cling to agnosticism and atheism. The author embraces the view of Blaise Pascal; a 17th century philosopher, mathematician, and physicist who first took note of the fact that all of us – whether wittingly or unwittingly – are making the single most important decision we can possibly make when considering the risk inherent in betting the wrong way on this matter - a risk/reward decision that has come to be known as Pascal's Wager. The author's goal is to take blind faith out of the equation, and to offer solid empirical proof that God and Jesus exist. What makes this book unique is the way in which the author melds science with bible scriptures to methodically develop a case in support of Christianity that will impact the most avid atheists, and bring those who fall into the camp of agnosticism or lukewarm Christianity to a degree of certainty in the existence of God and Jesus they have heretofore never experienced. It is not a book you will want to lay down as it develops in a manner that is not that much different than a good novel. It is clear from the start that the author is setting out on a journey, and not at all certain as to where he will be led, but with each successive page the case in support of betting on Jesus becomes stronger and stronger, and finally arriving at a point in the last chapter where you may find yourself viewing eternity with great anticipation - not at all unlike the anticipation you might experience when getting ready to go on the vacation of your dreams.
