    This is probably the most deceptive book I ve ever read The author starts with a collection of quotes from historians and others who share his faith and a few often repeated claims that there is a whole lot of evidence for the resurrection This serves to trick readers into believing that this book is based on historical research But look closer at the footnotes and you ll see that when he s talking about historical facts he s often actually quoting the Bible or it s simply not clear what This is probably the most deceptive book I ve ever read The author starts with a collection of quotes from historians and others who share his faith and a few often repeated claims that there is a whole lot of evidence for the resurrection This serves to trick readers into believing that this book is based on historical research But look closer at the footnotes and you ll see that when he s talking about historical facts he s often actually quoting the Bible or it s simply not clear what his sources are If you want to prove a story or myth, you can t use one part of that story, assume that it s true, and then use logic to show that the rest of the story must also be true This should be obvious But McDowell does it all the time At some points he refers to some Roman and Hebrew sources that some other author has used, but fails to tell us what these sources actually say The only thing that this book shows is that a few major parts of the resurrection myth do not contradict each other

    This book is a preposterous collection of disingenuous nonsense, poor arguments, and logical fallacies For that reason, I suppose it has a certain value as entertainment It tells us, for example, that five hundred people are supposed to have seen the resurrected Jesus, and that this can t be made up because there were five hundred people to tell us so Really People take this kind of argument seriously Apparently I also enjoyed the bit claiming that the number of copies of the Bible in exis This book is a preposterous collection of disingenuous nonsense, poor arguments, and logical fallacies For that reason, I suppose it has a certain value as entertainment It tells us, for example, that five hundred people are supposed to have seen the resurrected Jesus, and that this can t be made up because there were five hundred people to tell us so Really People take this kind of argument seriously Apparently I also enjoyed the bit claiming that the number of copies of the Bible in existence is some kind of evidence for its veracity Or the appendix from a retired judge telling us that we can reduce the question to one of whether we think the apostles were good or bad people And when I say enjoyed I mean it It was enjoyable to read this book and be shaken, not by the realisation that the resurrection took place, but by my utter bafflement that intelligent people have read this book and thought it good

    Josh McDowell is definitely one of the best writers and speakers in terms of making a case for the authenticity of Christ and his message In this book, Josh clearly lists out the reasons why the resurrection is true and why we should believe it He also takes into account the various theories around the resurrection and clearly points out why they are not true He uses a mix of science and history to lay down evidence that will help one come to a conclusion about the resurrection of Jesus I wh Josh McDowell is definitely one of the best writers and speakers in terms of making a case for the authenticity of Christ and his message In this book, Josh clearly lists out the reasons why the resurrection is true and why we should believe it He also takes into account the various theories around the resurrection and clearly points out why they are not true He uses a mix of science and history to lay down evidence that will help one come to a conclusion about the resurrection of Jesus I wholly recommend this book both to the believer and skeptic

    I thought McDowell did an excellent job explaining the basis for belief in the resurrection of Jesus Recommended.

    The was a book very similar to thecontemporary The Case for Christ by Lee Strobel McDowell looks at the historical evidence aruond the resurrection and makes a case for why it is the most coherent and rational set of events based on the eye witness testimony, the circumstantial evidence and even his own life changes 2000 years after the event While it seemed that a couple of his points were repetitive in the book, overall he makes a clear case for why a Christian can truly believe that The was a book very similar to thecontemporary The Case for Christ by Lee Strobel McDowell looks at the historical evidence aruond the resurrection and makes a case for why it is the most coherent and rational set of events based on the eye witness testimony, the circumstantial evidence and even his own life changes 2000 years after the event While it seemed that a couple of his points were repetitive in the book, overall he makes a clear case for why a Christian can truly believe that the tomb was empty on that first Easter and why the Christian religion started off so strongly in Jerusalem amidst such a difficult environment Worth the read and I also enjoyed some of the backup material that he included in the version tht I readso look for the version with the supplemental information in the back
