“The resurrection of Jesus stands fast as a fact, unaffected by the boastful waves of skepticism that ceaselessly through the ages beat themselves against it, retains its significance as a corner stone in the edifice of human redemption, and holds within it the vastest hope for time and for eternity that humanity can ever know.” The Resurrection of Jesus anthologizes 10 of James Orr’s best essays on Christ’s resurrection that originally appeared in The Expositor. Scholarly, apologetic, devotional, practical—this volume is packed with spiritual insight and application. The following essays are included:

  • The Present State of the Question
  • Its Nature as Miracle
  • The Gospel Narratives and Critical Solvents
  • The Credibility of the Witness—The Burial
  • Credibility Continued—“The Easter Message”
  • Credibility Continued—The Post-Resurrection Appearances
  • The Significance of the Appearances—The Risen Body
  • The Apostolic Church—Visional and Apparational Theories
  • Neo-Babylonian Theories—Jewish and Apocryphal Ideas
  • Doctrinal Bearings of the Resurrection
Professor Orr, of Glasgow, is, in our judgment, the most successful apologetic writer of the present day . . . His new book is a learned, unhesitating apologetic, the only book that it is of any use to write, if we are to have apologetics at all. He has chosen his subject with unerring judgment. The Resurrection is the citadel. It is less violently attacked now than formerly, but it is still the chief object of attack.

Expository Times

The writer has long been known as a great biblical scholar. His works along this line are in most of our minister’s libraries, and regarded as safe guides in theological thought. We have in this volume a most valuable contribution to the fundamental doctrine of Christianity. We do not know of a better book to put into the hands of our young men and women than this volume. It is exhaustive without being tiring, deep yet clear, forcible in argument and in every respect calculated to instruct concerning this great doctrine.
