Was the resurrection of Jesus a fact of history or a figment of imagination? Was it an event that entailed a raised and transformed body and an empty tomb? Or was it a subjective, visionary experience--a collective delusion? In the view of many, the truth of Christianity hangs on the answer to this question.

I enjoy a respectful debate about important matters, but I found this interaction to be sadly muddy. The structure of the book records a 2002 oral debate between two scholars each proposing in regard to Jesus a resurrection hypothesis or a vision/hallucination hypothesis, followed by a written response to the debate by four scholars (two supporting each side), and ending with a written response to the responses by the original debaters.

What I most enjoyed in this book were the participants' essay responses post-debate, most especially Dr. Craig's. It is a very powerful argument, carefully weighed, and stimulates the issue to a very high level in regards to comparing the opposite views. The last chapter, and the post-debate responses from 4 scholars, are worth the read. Very enriching.

A transcript of a debate on the Resurrection... followed by essays responding to the debate & the points raised. Obviously, I side with William Lane Craig... but I was impressed that Ludemann was intellectually honest enough to come to the point of admitting that what he believes doesn't count as Christianity.

Another book that is on mp3 format. Craig vs. Borg is a great listen and read for the believer.
