As a prominent reporter in New York City, William Proctor covered major international stories, from organized crime assassinations to terrorist bombings. Now, he takes on the most challenging story of his career: investigating the Resurrection of Jesus Christ according to the strictest present-day journalistic standards.

With his characteristic demand for detail and fidelity to fact, this no-nonsense reporter sets the record straight about that first Easter Sunday. He asks the pertinent questions: “Who saw this miraculous event? What exactly occurred? When, where, how, and why did it happen?”

A feature of The Resurrection Report that will be of special interest to Bible students and scholars is Proctor’s “Resurrection rewrite”: After studying all biblical references to the Resurrection, he stepped into the journalistic role of “rewrite man” and produced one seamless narrative of the 27 major events that occurred from the burial of Jesus through his Ascension. This “harmony” of the Resurrection accounts, which is accompanied by lists of biblical sources and explanations, provides an exceptionally complete picture of the excitement and turmoil that accompanied that pivotal first-century event.

Poring over 2000-year-old documents and abiding by the reporter’s strict standards of proof, Proctor is uncompromising in his approach. He explores the most profound claims of the Christian faith with the critical eye necessary for getting at the objective truth. “The Resurrection is central to the Christian experience and must be tested against the highest standards of truth and authenticity,” Proctor says.
