-The American Rationalist
"In my judgment, McCormick’s book is one of the best—if not the best—critique of the core of Christianity ever written."
-Michael Martin, philosopher of religion, Boston University, and editor of The Cambridge Companion to Atheism
"Finally, a first-rate philosopher weighs in and utterly demolishes any hope reasonable people have for believing Jesus was resurrected from the grave. . . . No other book presents a better case. Nothing more needs to be said."
-John W. Loftus, author of Why I Became an Atheist
"An extremely good book. Without any technical flourishes, it makes the case against the Jesus story so compellingly that I cannot imagine anyone who takes the trouble to read it carefully and without prejudice being other than completely convinced."
-Colin Howson, professor of philosophy, University of Toronto
"Who should read this book? Theists, atheists, Christians, non-Christians, and those whose lives are affected by these overlapping groups—in short, everyone. It contains bold arguments . . . [and is] plain speaking, fast moving, wide ranging, and hard hitting."
-Russell DiSilvestro, assistant professor of philosophy, California State University–Sacramento
"A fascinating and well-crafted collection of arguments against the resurrection of Jesus and, more broadly, against the existence of God."
-Ricki Monnier, coeditor of The Improbability of God and The Impossibility of God
"McCormick’s treatment of the psychological and epistemological aspects of the Christian outlook is the best I have ever seen."
-Theodore M. Drange, professor emeritus, West Virginia University
"A fascinating and convincing case for generalized atheism."
-Raymond D. Bradley, professor of philosophy emeritus, Simon Fraser University
"This book very convincingly shows that most Christians are not justified in accepting the central doctrines of Christianity. . . . [It] should be read by anyone with an interest in the philosophy and history of religion."
-Eric Sotnak, associate professor of philosophy, the University of Akron
