Christianity stands or falls on one stupendous event: the resurrection of Jesus Christ. If he is now no more than a handful of dust and bones lying somewhere in Israel, the Christian faith lies buried with him. In this new publication, John Blanchard examines the evidence, assesses the alternatives, and provides a convincing conclusion. Here is a little volume that will strengthen the faith of countless Christians—and give them a dynamic means of sharing the faith with others.

Top Highlights

“‘If Jesus had not risen from the dead, we should probably have never heard of him.’33 He may be right. What is certain is that around A.D. 32 a dynamic new movement sprang into existence, beginning with a handful of men who believed Jesus had risen from the dead.” (Page 32)

“The fact is that the laws of nature cannot cause anything to happen. They merely reflect our assessment of how things normally happen. The person who believes in God goes further and says they describe what God normally causes to happen.” (Page 8)

“People may sometimes be willing to die for something they believe to be true (and countless fanatics have done so), but nobody is prepared to die for something they know to be false.” (Page 14)

“Miracles are not against nature, they are above nature and to deny their possibility is ignorance masquerading as intelligence.” (Page 8)

“Adam’s children were born ‘in his own likeness, after his image’” (Page 28)
