Overview

Excerpt from The First Easter Dawn: An Inquiry Into the Evidence for the Resurrection of Jesus

The prominence which the subject of this work has assumed in recent years may be held to excuse the publication of a further attempt to bring it into clearer light. So far as I am aware, no tolerably complete examination of the evidence from the standpoint of modern Rationalism exists in this country. It is hoped that the present volume may supply a need which is felt by many inquirers.

The extensive sale of a certain work of fiction, the strange crudities of which might have been a source of innocent amusement had they not been gravely endorsed by some dignitaries of the Church, has stimulated my resolve to supply, to the best of my power, a counteracting influence on behalf of sobriety and common sense. It is not to be expected that a work on the unpopular side will meet with equal assent or appreciation; but if it should enable even a few seekers after truth to obtain a firmer grasp of a great historical problem, my labour will not have been wasted.

Many will think this book too long. It is in reality too short. Some branches of the subject have had to be treated either very lightly or not at all.
