A great book, a must have, for those that are seeking the truth, of all the books in my collection. This is one of a few I would read over and over again. I wished this author wrote many more books of this type.
It's on the same level as "The Case for a Creator" by Lee Strobel.

Even though this book was written in 1930, it remains the classic on the subject of the resurrection. This book is far superior to some of the other recent apologetics dealing with the resurrection, such as the Case for Christ. Who Moved the Stone is written from the perspective of a skeptic, but uses the reasoning of a historian. While it uses the gospel accounts extensively, it doesn't accept them at face value; it reviews them with the critical eye of the historian. Morison does a wonderful job of reading between the lines in the gospel accounts, using logic to determine the probability of the details not recorded in the text. His reasoning is what makes this book valuable. Strong Christians might be turned of by his not accepting the gospels at face value, but to me, that's what makes this book beneficial. It's helpful to anyone (whether Christian or atheist) who is sincerely exploring for his or her own understanding the question of whether or not Jesus Christ literally rose from the dead.Was this review helpful?

the book is very well researched and can be read by both the agnostic and the christian with i believe equal interest.It gives a fascinating proposal to the identity of one of the angels present at the tomb 'AND ENTERING THE TOMB,THEY SAW A YOUNG MAN CLOTHED IN A LONG WHITE ROBE SITTING ON THE RIGHT SIDE;AND THEY WERE ALARMED.'......Was this review helpful?
