Examining archaeological, textual, and extra-biblical evidence, Gary R. Habermas provides a strong foundation for the existence and deity of Jesus. He begins by surveying the past centuries of historical Jesus studies, highlighting key figures and offering an informed critique of their arguments. Habermas concludes with a convincing survey of the historical data available to the modern reader. His detailed engagement with early creedal statements, archaeological data, and other witnesses is both reasoned and convincing.

    Maybe I'm biased, but arguably the best apologist on the Resurrection today!
