The Case For The Resurrection Of Jesus, reviewed by Patricia Riley


The Case For The Resurrection Of JesusGary Habermas and Michael Licona, The Case For The Resurrection Of Jesus (Grand Rapids: Kregel, 2004), 352 pages, ISBN 9780825427886.

Gary Habermas, “Distinguished Research Professor and Chair” in the Department of Philosophy and Theology at Liberty University and Michael Licona, a Ph.D. candidate in New Testament at the University of Pretoria have put together a comprehensive volume of information on the resurrection of Jesus. Their aim is to equip believers to share their faith with skeptics and answer some of their own unasked questions.

This user-friendly book is divided into 3 sections. Part 1 is about sharing your faith and includes a chapter on church history. Part 2 covers the minimal facts approach; this approach considers data that meets two criteria, first the data is strongly evidenced and second virtually all scholars, even skeptics, must accept the data. Part 3 looks at opposing theories of the resurrection, objections, and skeptical questions are answered here. Part 4 covers additional issues and a chapter on people skills.

The book has an appendix, copious notes and a computer game to quiz yourself. I can see this book as a great teaching tool for evangelism and apologetics.
