Overview

"I owe Morison a great debt of gratitude. Who Moved the Stone? was an important early link in a long chain of evidence that God used to bring me into his kingdom. Morison’s stirring intellectual exploration of the historical record proved to be an excellent starting point for my spiritual investigation." --From the foreword by Lee Strobel English journalist Frank Morison had a tremendous drive to learn of Christ. The strangeness of the Resurrection story had captured his attention, and, influenced by skeptic thinkers at the turn of the century, he set out to prove that the story of Christ’s Resurrection was only a myth. His probings, however, led him to discover the validity of the biblical record in a moving, personal way. Who Moved the Stone? is considered by many to be a classic apologetic on the subject of the Resurrection. Morison includes a vivid and poignant account of Christ’s betrayal, trial, and death as a backdrop to his retelling of the climactic Resurrection itself. Among the chapter titles are:
• The Book That Refused to Be Written
• The Real Case Against the Prisoner
• What Happened Before Midnight on Thursday
• Between Sunset and Dawn
• The Witness of the Great Stone
• Some Realities of That Far-off Morning Who Moved the Stone? is a well-researched book that is as fascinating in its appeal to reason as it is accurate to the truthfulness of the Resurrection.

    Fantastic

    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.

    Very well reasoned book

    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.

    A MINDOPENER

    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.'......
