Is Jesus Reasonable? questions the logic of Jesus Christ's Words in the Holy Bible. Gerald Prichard, a Bible teacher and Ph.D. scientist, details the answers to this question. Specifically, he compares all of the conditional and procedural statements attributed to Christ to each other, as well as to all of the formal rules of human reasoning. In so doing, this book demonstrates that formal human reasoning can be an applicable method of interpreting these statements, but not generally for logical inferences nor for a few specific passages. Lastly, Dr. Prichard determines the minimal set of human conditions that together imply each of the promises conditioned upon human attitudes or actions. This analysis indicates that individual sacrifice, desire, and perseverance in following Christ's Example and individual humility are the most common human conditions associated with these promises.
