More About the Author

I am the Research Professor of Philosophy at Talbot School of Theology in La Mirada, California. With my wife Jan, we have two grown children.

At the age of sixteen as a junior in high school, I first heard the message of the Christian gospel and yielded my life to Christ. I pursued undergraduate studies at Wheaton College (B.A. 1971) and graduate studies at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School (M.A. 1974; M.A. 1975), the University of Birmingham (England) (Ph.D. 1977), and the University of Munich (Germany) (D.Theol. 1984). From 1980-86 I taught Philosophy of Religion at Trinity, during which time we started our family. In 1987 we moved to Brussels, Belgium, where I pursued research at the University of Louvain until assuming my position at Talbot in 1994.

I have authored or edited over thirty books, including The Kalam Cosmological Argument; Assessing the New Testament Evidence for the Historicity of the Resurrection of Jesus; Divine Foreknowledge and Human Freedom; Theism, Atheism and Big Bang Cosmology; and God, Time and Eternity, as well as over a hundred articles in professional journals of philosophy and theology, including Philosophia Christi, The Journal of Philosophy, New Testament Studies, Journal for the Study of the New Testament, American Philosophical Quarterly, Philosophical Studies, Philosophy, and British Journal for Philosophy of Science.

Format: Paperback
Dr. Craig offers a number of compelling reasons
for accepting the historicity of both the empty tomb and resurrection of Jesus as recorded in the
Gospels. Extensive references to the primary
literature are provided for those who wish to do
further study. A "must read" title, particularly
for those who have questions about the veracity
of orthodox Christianity.

Format: Paperback
William Lane Craig, in "Knowing the Truth About the Resurrection," presents the standard arguments that are designed to establish the bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ as a historical fact. He does this in an easy-to-understand and plausible way. While he breaks no new ground, he does a credible job of presenting a case that many others before and after him have done.

He first shows why certain attempts to explain away the resurrection (such as the conspiracy theory, the apparent death theory, and the wrong-tomb theory) lack credibility. He then goes on to discuss the burial of Jesus, the overwhelming evidence for and the significance of the empty tomb, what the appearances of Jesus, as recorded in the Gospels, show about the likelihood of the resurrection, and how the origin of the Christian faith provides strong support for the bodily resurrection.

Although this book does not look at the issue of Christ's resurrection in the depth of a book such as N.T. Wright's, "The Resurrection of the Son of God," it provides a good introduction to the topic and is therefore a book to recommend to a person who has never before considered the evidence for Christ's bodily resurrection.
