"A useful consideration of the resurrection and also an illuminating insight into the developing thinking of an important contemporary philosopher." (David McKay, The Covenanter Witness, November 2009)
"A slim volume packed full of useful insights and historical persepctive." (On Mission, Winter 2010)
"This debate will provide much food for thought in this religious debate which holds one of the most vital beliefs of Christianity in the balance. Enthusiastically recommended." (James A. Cox, Library Bookwatch, September 2009)
"If you want to be a witness for Jesu Christ, then I strongly, STRONGLY recommend you obtain a copy of Did the Resurrection Happen? from InterVarsity Press. The point I'm trying to make which is made in the book is that the resurrection of Christ is the foundation of our faith. Don't waste your time battling with skeptics over ancillary issues. Take them directly to the resurrection of Christ. Read this book and become a better witness than you've ever been." (Hunter Baker, Mere Comments (merecomments.typepad.com), July 22, 2009)
"The final section of the book is, in my opinion, the best chapter of all. It is written by the editor David Bagett and looks at Flew's arguments (as well as his straw men) head on." (Daniel Seatvet, Examiner (examiner.com), July 26, 2009)
Lay readers could hardly ask for a better entrée to the resurreciton as a philosophical issue than Flew and Habermas' dialogues. A beacon of enlightenment on its subject. (Ray Olson, Booklist, May 15, 2009)
"Lay readers could hardly ask for a better entrée to the resurrection as a philosophical issue. A beacon of enlightenment on its subject." (Booklist, May 15, 2009)
"The conversation between Habermas and Flew has been a fascinating one at the highest levels of philosophical reflection. This book beautifully chronicles that dialogue in a way that is clear for those not versed in philosophy. The book will cause you to sit and ponder. That is a compliment enough, but more than that you will learn how two competing worldviews should interact with each other--and that is a real gift." (Darrell Bock, Dallas Theological Seminary)
"A lively conversation about the most important question in the history, and for the future, of the world. Habermas's compelling answers to Flew's questions awaken hope within me. The resurrection and vindication of Christ frees us from the fear of death, and for true life, now and forever. I wish this book for all of us, especially skeptics who are also thinkers." (Kelly Monroe Kullberg, author of Finding God Beyond Harvard: The Quest for Veritas, founder and director of project development, The Veritas Forum, and editor of Finding God at Harvard: Spiritual Journeys of Thinking Christians)
"David Baggett has skillfully edited an engaging and warm-hearted debate between Gary Habermas and Antony Flew, two of the world's foremost philosophers and thinkers, the former a Christian and apologist and the latter a well-known atheist who recently has embraced deism. Their debate centers on the very essence of Christian faith--the resurrection of Jesus Christ. This is a great book. I recommend it enthusiastically." (Craig A. Evans, Ph.D., Payzant Distinguished Professor of New Testament, Acadia Divinity College)
"This book offers not only a lively exchange on Jesus' resurrection between Habermas and Flew. The section on Flew's pilgrimage to belief in God and the excellent analysis by Baggett help both round out the dialogue as well as provide much food for philosophical and theological thought. A superb resource on the resurrection!" (Paul Copan, professor and Pledger Family Chair of Philosophy and Ethics, Palm Beach Atlantic University, West Palm Beach, Florida)
"This work brings together the chief contemporary defender of the resurrection and the foremost atheist of the 20th century. While the style is warm and conversational, this book is all meat and no fluff. Baggett's assessment of the debate alone is worth the price of the book. I highly recommend this to all who wish to defend the historical credibility of the resurrection of Jesus. The debate is a model of civility." (J. P. Moreland, Distinguished Professor of Philosophy, Talbot School of Theology, and coauthor of In Search of a Confident Faith)
"This book is a dialogue between the leading expert on Jesus' resurrection and the most influential atheist philosopher of the late twentieth century. No fluff. No insults. This is an intelligent and friendly exchange of ideas among two giants in their field who have arrived at radically different views of what happened to Jesus 2,000 years ago." (Michael R. Licona, director of apologetics, North American Mission Board)
"As a reader of Did the Resurrection Happen? A Conversation with Gary Habermas and Antony Flew, I experienced the rare pleasure of eavesdropping on a rigorous discussion between close friends. While they persist in their strong disagreement over a variety of substantive issues, Habermas and Flew never fail to argue with charity and humor. This posture gives the book a warm and congenial flavor. It is a great read for anyone interested in philosophy, in the resurrection or in how best to engage in significant debate." (Gregory E. Ganssle, Rivendell Institute, department of philosophy, Yale University)
"This book is a dialogue between the leading expert on Jesus' resurrection and the most influential atheist philosopher of the late twentieth century. No fluff. No insults. This is an intelligent and friendly exchange of ideas among two giants in their field who have arrived at radically different views of what happened to Jesus 2,000 years ago."
