Editorial Reviews

Review

Doug Powell's book includes cutting-edge distinctions that are presented in a fast-moving format that absolutely dares you to try and look away. I've never seen anything like it. I recommend it highly.
Gary R. Habermas, Ph.D.
Liberty University & Theological Seminary

Doug Powell has created a book full of information laid out in an aesthetically pleasing format. He presents the major evidence for the historical event of Jesus' resurrection and shows why competing hypotheses simply come up short. Highly recommended!"
Michael Licona, Ph.D.
Author, The Resurrection of Jesus: A New Historiographical Approach


Powell has created a visually stunning and academically astute tool that will draw in believer and unbeliever alike and present the powerful historical evidence of Jesus' conquest of death. Any Christian should have this fantastic book at the ready. 
Craig J. Hazen, Ph.D.
Biola Univeristy, Director of M.A. Program in Christian Apologetics


Doug Powell's Resurrection iWitness is a brilliant blend of art and scholarship that supports history's most important event. Even those who hate to read will not be able to resist Resurrection iWitness!  
Frank Turek, Ph.D.
Co-author, I Don't Have Enough Faith to be an Atheist

It is much more than a coffee table book and more than a kid's book.

I'd recommend this book for anyone interested in exploring the truth claims of Christianity - from skeptic to believer, student to theologian.

Doug Powell also did quite a job with the design, and thus this book is visually impressive to boot.

Resurrection iWitness is a wonderful book, both well written and well researched. Doug Powell also did quite a job with the design, and thus this book is visually impressive to boot. A wonderful coffee table piece!

A previous reviewer (JKG) critiqued Resurrection iWitness based on misleading facts in the product description. Thus, the reviewer claims, while the description states that Powell bases his case on what "only on the historical facts that all biblical scholars (including atheistic, Jewish, and liberal) accept...", Gary Habermas who originated this apologetic approach to the resurrection states that only "75% of his surveyed scholars accept his minimal facts as true." This assertion is false, however. What Habermas (who endorses this book) and Mike Licona (who also endorses this book) state in their 2004 book "The Case for the Resurrection of Jesus," is that the minimal facts that they use are both (a) well attested historically and (b) granted by almost every scholar who studies the subject. Technically, there are only 4 minimal facts, although 2 others are frequently added as well. These are the six facts that are then used by Powell (4+2), and are presented as follows with the scholarly percentages given by Habermas and Licona: (1) the death of Jesus by crucifxtion - nearly 100%; (2) The disciples themselves claimed that the risen Jesus had appeared to them - nearly 100%; (3) the disciples truly believed that the risen Jesus had appeared to them - nearly 100%; (4) the conversion of the church persecutor Paul after an appearance of the risen Jesus - nearly 100%; (5) the conversion of James the brother of Jesus after an appearence of the risen Jesus - around 90%; and finally (6) the empty tomb - around 75%.

After skimming the book, I put it out in my office and it was immediately noticed and commented upon. Many of the first comments were how well the book was put together. Though there's not a ton of content, but it is well organized and interactive. There is a section about the Shroud of Turin in there which can be interesting but I don't think should go into a book like this. It has great value as a conversation starter. The crowd I'm around required a bit of presupposition explanations, but the fact that these types of conversations were started was definitely worth the low price of this book! I highly recommend it!

I really like this book for two reasons, one having to do with aesthetics and the other with contents.

Aesthetically speaking this is a very different sort of Apologetics book because it is filled with charts, pictures, paintings, etc. It is very visual. This is what was the initial draw for me. If you have ever read anything from the Griffin & Sabine series, you will get what I am talking about(although the most salient set of colors here are various hues of brown). I oddly enough especially like the map of Jerusalem ... for whatever reason I have never consulted one of these when reading the Bible.

Speaking content-wise, the book starts off by presenting a minimal set of facts related to Jesus' resurrection that various scholars, liberal and conservative agree on. Then it moves on to discuss various alternatives to the resurrection (e.g. Swoon Theory) and helps you think about them in light of the minimum facts and some other considerations. Along the way, as you read the book, other interesting information is also presented.

One strength here is that Powell explains things well, in an easy to understand manner and he does not overload you with a barrage of information which can happen very easily with this issue. Well done! I hope Powell writes other books!

Excellent book by Doug Powell. He did a wonderful job combining solid, thoughtful, reasonable apologetics with fun and compelling graphics to make this book an adventurous page-turner! It has an Indiana Jones-like quality in that you must explore every photo, flap, map, chart, etc to fully understand the claims on each page. But you don't get too bogged down in the details, because they are clear, brief and to the point. I'd recommend this book for anyone interested in exploring the truth claims of Christianity - from skeptic to believer, student to theologian. A must have for your coffee table! I am sincerely looking forward to the next installment!

Maybe you've always believed in the Resurrection and never really considered the evidence behind it, maybe your someone who has wondered if it really happened, maybe you were told it did not. Powell has created an interactive and visual exploration of the evidence that point to the resurrection being a real event. Straightforward and accessible, a great resource for everyone. For more detailed info, see The Historical Jesus: Ancient Evidence for the Life of Christ, The Case for Christ and The Case for the Real Jesus.
