Did the Resurrection Happen ... Really?: A Dialogue on Life, Death, and Hope 4.6 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 8 reviews.

Great introductory work which offers evidence for the resurrection in the form of a novel, in which students face difficult events in their life and through conversation investigate the Biblical and historical claims for the Resurrection. While in many ways introductory, but for those with a more philosophical and historical bent, further reading is implied by the citations - including Tacitus, Josephus, Justin Martyr, and many Church Fathers. I was glued to it on the plane back to Wisconsin, and I enjoyed it immensely. Praise God that the truth of Our Lord's resurrection shines through the darkness. The authors are wonderful ambassadors of that truth, intellectually and spiritually.

Christian apologist Josh McDowell displays a deep commitment to bringing the message of Jesus Christ and salvation to young people. In "Did the Resurrection Happen.Really?" he approaches the mission from a fictional standpoint. On a modern college campus, a debate between an instructor, representing the historical Christ, an atheist and an agnostic leads to tension and questioning among the student body. The school hosts an atheist club along with faith-based groups and seems an unlikely place for violence. Yet a shooting occurs and the survivors search for answers. McDowell paints a detailed picture of a community in crisis and shows the meaning of hope because of the Resurrection. He accomplishes this through lively, often dramatic conversation among the characters in a series of encounters between believers, seekers and those firmly against the Christian faith. As the students interact, they discuss scripture, history and truth. One such discussion centers on the reasons people believe. Should people come to faith because it gives them comfort or because it has been proven to them intellectually? The subjects range from the garden tomb of Jesus to Elvis and Michael Jackson in a supermarket, as a formerly atheistic professor describes his reasons for accepting Jesus (at a backyard barbeque, no less). McDowell and Sterrett tell the story with a deft touch, avoiding a "wise adult lecturing poor, ignorant kids" attitude. The book is a journey of discovery among peers, with pro and con given equal weight. The presentation is balanced and a convincing depiction of questioning young people pursuing a subject. They ask questions and discuss possible answers. As part of the Coffee House Chronicles series, "Did the Resurrection Happen.Really?" takes its place in a library of faith-based books for young adults. The books entertain, while sharing the gospel story in a fictional setting. Parents can share these books with their children without fear of inappropriate language or activities. Young Christians can share these books with their unsaved friends without danger of appearing preachy. This review is based upon a review copy of the book provided by the publisher with no constraints on content.

The Coffee House Chronicles include three must read books for anyone searching for answers to the questions of "Who is Jesus?" "Is the Bible Really True?" and "Did the Resurrection Really Happen?" These books will give Christians the information they need to witness to unbelievers struggling with these questions and will increase their own faith as the truth is revealed about these three major issues of faith. The books are easy to read and written as dialogue between friends. As you read, you get drawn in and feel like you are sitting at a table in a coffee house listening to the character's conversations. The information is presented in a way that is easy to understand and I found myself not wanting to put the books down. I highly recommend all three of these books!
