Editorial Reviews

Review

This is one of the most engaging dialogues between two of the best representatives of opposing perspectives on one of the most controversial topics?the resurrection of Jesusssss (Dr. Norman L. Geisler)

The release of this book represents a major publishing event. For twenty years or so there has been a steady growth in Christian philosophy and most of it has been representative of an historic approach to Christianity. Now with this book, a major academic publisher has provided for a broad audience a first-rate discussion that takes the bodily resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth seriously. The book brings together the top Christian defender of the resurrection and the most articulate advocate of atheismover the last fifty years. The conversational format allows these two great minds an opportunity to have a real interchange about Jesus? resurrection that is at once mutually respectful and clear. I recommend this book to anyone interested in a clear, fair-minded exchange on this most important topicc (J. P. Moreland)

If a good old-fashioned debate on the resurrection by two keen minds on opposite ends of the spectrum of opinion is your thing, then this lively but civil discourse, now in book form, is well worth your time and investment. (Dr. Ben Witherington, III)

Format: Paperback
In May 2004, John Ankerberg hosted a discussion between Christian theist Gary Habermas and atheist philosopher Antony Flew concerning the evidence for Jesus Christ's resurrection. "Resurrected?" contains this dialogue, as well as a follow-up Q&A session and brief summary articles from the three authors.

Unfortunately, I felt that this book suffered from several flaws. I was expecting more of a debate, and I was disappointed with several facets of the discussion. First of all, Flew didn't do a good job responding to Habermas or making a strong case for his disbelief in the resurrection. At many times it is simply astounding the amount that Flew is willing to concede without argument. He essentially concedes the entire case to Habermas and chooses to reject the idea of a resurrection because of its miraculous nature.

Second of all, the debate wasn't really all that fair. To give Flew some credit, he really had to debate two people. Ankerberg, who was supposed to be a moderator (apparently?) was very involved in the discussion and was extremely biased in favor of Habermas. I just didn't think it was fair for Flew to be forced to address two debate opponents, and this flaw led to an even further lopsided discussion.

Finally, the book is too short to develop substantive content. Habermas does seem to make a strong case, but he is rarely challenged and so the discussion doesn't really develop past surface level.

Unfortunately, "Resurrected?" suffers from too many shortcomings to be of much use. If you are looking for a good debate on the resurrection of Jesus Christ, you should look elsewhere.

Antony Garrard Newton Flew (1923-2010) was a British philosopher, and formerly a noteworthy advocate of atheism, until his 2004 change of mind (see There Is a God: How the World's Most Notorious Atheist Changed His Mind). He wrote such influential books as God & Philosophy and The Presumption of Atheism and Other (Philosophical) Essays on God, Freedom and Immortality; he also participated in debates/dialogues such as The Warren-Flew Debate on the Existence of God, Does God Exist?: The Great Debate, etc.

Gary Habermas (born 1950) is Professor of Apologetics and Philosophy and chairman of the department of philosophy and theology at Liberty University, and is a foremost evangelical apologist who has written many books such as The Case for the Resurrection of Jesus, The Historical Jesus: Ancient Evidence for the Life of Christ, etc. These two philosophers had also met in debate in 1985 (see:

I suspect this book got bad reviews from both sides because it gave both sides! It did not have an axe to grind for either side which probably drew the ire of both of them. But having read so many books on this topic, I can say it is of high quality.

It encapsulates a debate between Gary Habermas and Anthony Flew. At the time, the former was the foremost evangelical apologist on the subject. And Flew was the most famous athiest philosopher. It ends with a conversation between N.T Wright and Anthony Flew.

This book is unique in that it not only gives both sides, but is also respectful in it's tone. And it becomes apparent much of this discussion hinges on previous philosophical assumptions. For instance, if God exists the supernatural becomes possible. If he does not, a resurrection becomes impossible.

I highly recommend it!

I enjoyed the way the book was written as a debate. The two philosophers presented very interesting views from both sides. I recommend it!
