I highly recommend this book to anyone with an analytical mind and who is skeptical of the resurrection of Jesus Christ. This book is concise (only 156 pages) yet thorough. It is a bit tedious at times, but I would rather it error on this side than to gloss over some details. Highly recommended!

Craig's first chapter is original to resurrection studies because he explores the absurdity of life without God, and what it means for the Christian idea of bodily resurrection to give contextual meaning for our lives.

Essential reading on the Resurrection of Jesus. I am strengthened by this book. Christians really have a lot going for themselves with the New Testament.

The chapter refuting the hallucination theory was excellent and stretched my understanding of the implications of a reliable New Testament historical record.

I think this book has a lot of new information for believers. Perhaps because there wasn't an overwhelming amount of new information for the seasoned reader is why I won't give it five stars

First class defence of the resurrection. This might not be anything new for apologetists, but it is information that every Believer should know by heart.

In a clear, easy-to-read format, the author lays down the historical evidence for the resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth. An essential read!
