  Jesus' Resurrection: What Historical Evidence?
Author: John Warwick Montgomery and Lester Grabbe

Centuries ago St. Paul stated the issue succinctly: "If Christ was not raised from the dead, then neither our preaching nor your faith has any meaning at all" (I Cor. 15:14, Phillips) Dr. Montgomery presents the case for the historicity of the resurrection, and the reliability of the New Testament accounts of the resurrection. Dr. Grabbe, Dean of the Theology Department at the University of Hull, argues that very little is known or knowable about what may have happened. What actually did happen that first Easter Sunday? And why can we confidently affirm, "He is risen; He is risen indeed."
