I Believe in the Resurrection of Jesus


Eerdmans 1975

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


With an attractive concision that doesn’t sacrifice scholarship, George Eldon Ladd anticipates much of what N. T. Wright would later popularize in The Resurrection of the Son of God. Ladd both interacts with theories leveled against the resurrection and presents a historical case for its authenticity. He marshals compelling support for the resurrection by exploiting the weaknesses of alternative explanations of the historical data. He also demonstrates the impossibility of the idea of a resurrected messiah naturally arising from Second Temple Judaism. This is a well-informed and carefully argued case for the resurrection.
