Editorial Reviews

Christian Apologetics Journal
The book's strengths are many. The evidence and arguments are presented in an easily understood manner, even for the layperson. Memory aids are found throughout in the form of helpful acronyms, graphics, and summaries. These permeate the book to such an extent that even a cursory glance will deliver more useful information than an average Sunday school class . . . . I was not really planning to review the CD-ROM game included with the book because I assumed it to be a mere add-on for promotional purposes, but I was completely wrong. The game is actually a high quality trivia game with a humorous "host" who encourages the player (sometimes through playful ridicule) as he goes through the game. It was quite entertaining and really lets the readers objectively evaluate how well they truly grasp the material . . . . Overall it would be difficult to find a better introductory book on Christ's resurrection. It is enjoyable and short enough to appeal to the layperson who wants to get a foothold on this important subject, yet weighty enough to be worthwhile to the more seasoned apologist (I certainly did not score nearly as well as I would have thought on my initial run through on their game!). I recommend it as top-ten essential book for those who wish to obey God's commands to defend the faith in a biblical manner.

"This outstanding teaching tool has multiple uses for church congregants: individual or small group study, visitation and evangelism preparation, church school elective courses, and theological fortification of secular university students. In addition, it provides stimulating study for pastors who have not taken an apologetics course in seminary or who need a refresher."

Publishers Weekly
Habermas, who has written several apologetic works on the resurrection, and Licona, a speaker and budding New Testament scholar who was once Habermas's student, offer a comprehensive and far-reaching argument for the historical veracity of Christ's resurrection. In fact, at times it is too far-reaching, as when the authors digress into refutations of Mormonism, alien activity and Elvis sightings; this book would be much improved if it had been trimmed by about a third. Many evangelicals will appreciate the authors' broad evidentiary claims and marshalling of historical, theological, archaeological, biomedical and literary data to support their belief in the resurrection. Yet despite its strong content, the book is poorly written, and is organized in a workmanlike outline format that seems more appropriate for a seminary lecture than a seamless book. A closing chapter offers practical tips for evangelical Christians who wish to share their faith with others. (Apr. 15) Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.

    Great transaction!

    My books came faster than Amazon, even though it was free shipping.Very satisfied. The book itself was kind of hard to read, more like a textbook, however, I do feel more equipped to defend my faith, which is a very good thing.
