The Apostle Paul famously wrote that if Jesus did not rise from the dead, then the Christian faith is in vain. In this volume, Dr. Jeffrey Morrow examines the historical evidence for Jesus' resurrection. Dr. Morrow's thorough investigation examines the arguments and weighs the evidence, demonstrating that the Christian confession of Jesus' resurrection best explains the known historical facts. The main narrative is accessible to a wide lay audience. The book includes detailed endnotes and bibliography for the interested scholar.
