'I owe Morison a great debt of gratitude. 'Who Moved the Stone?' was an important early link in a long chain of evidence that God used to bring me into his kingdom. Morison's stirring intellectual exploration of the historical record proved to be an excellent starting point for my spiritual investigation.' -- Lee Strobel
From the Back Cover
"I owe Morison a great debt of gratitude. Who Moved the Stone? was an important early link in a long chain of evidence that God used to bring me into his kingdom. Morison's stirring intellectual exploration of the historical record proved to be an excellent starting point for my spiritual investigation." --From the foreword by Lee Strobel
English journalist Frank Morison had a tremendous drive to learn of Christ. The strangeness of the Resurrection story had captured his attention, and, influenced by skeptic thinkers at the turn of the century, he set out to prove that the story of Christ's Resurrection was only a myth. His probings, however, led him to discover the validity of the biblical record in a moving, personal way.
Who Moved the Stone? is considered by many to be a classic apologetic on the subject of the Resurrection. Morison includes a vivid and poignant account of Christ's betrayal, trial, and death as a backdrop to his retelling of the climactic Resurrection itself. Among the chapter titles are:
* The Book That Refused to Be Written
* The Real Case Against the Prisoner
* What Happened Before Midnight on Thursday
* Between Sunset and Dawn
* The Witness of the Great Stone
* Some Realities of That Far-off Morning
Who Moved the Stone? is a well-researched book that is as fascinating in its appeal to reason as it is accurate to the truthfulness of the Resurrection.

Definitely buy the book, but buy the hard copy -- not the Kindle version.
One by one he takes the various premises put forth over the years ("the disciples stole the body"), analyzes them from every angle, and proves that they are impossible. It is a fascinating read.
As for all the typos, I can only guess that someone took the original text and converted it with OCR to the Kindle version. It is quite disconcerting to see God printed as "Cod" in numerous places. It is sad that a fine scholarly work such as this is is degraded by quite obviously not being proofread before distribution.
If you can read this book and forgive the egregious errors (they are not "typos" - nobody could possibly be that careless), I highly recommend it. Mr. Morrison's scholarly product deserves better than a hasty reproduction with OCR.
Who Moved the Stone does much to present in an unemotional, objective, way the known and provable facts surrounding the trial, execution and post execution events along with the authors conjecture on the events described. A book whose content suggests self examination of one's beliefs or non-belief. Remarkably free of Christianise.
The author's balanced manner of presenting views of the evidence, then systematically removing the least logical and keeping the most natural conclusions to the Gospel's stories of Christ's death, burial and resurrection, is captivating and convincing!
It is well worth your careful reading and stands head and shoulders above much modern Biblical literature. Be forewarned though...you'll need a rather sophisticated dictionary to understand some of Frank Morrison's language!
