5.0 out of 5 stars For Seekers & Skeptics 28 July 1999
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I've read many books on the historical reliability (and unreliability) of the New Testament; I've seen many educated opinions varying in every way; I done studies many resurrections-centered topics; but I've never seen a book quite like this! Morrison takes nothing for granted. He trusts his instincts, and, though coming shy of any kind of Biblical-Christian opinion, he beautifully defends the resurrection in this short examination. As a doubter I find it difficult to swallow what many Christians take for granted in their own faith. This book is not like most. However, as a believer I was thrown by Morrison into the last week of Jesus' life (and the following weeks) as I never have by any lecture or writing. Morrison brings to light many historical details missed my so many people (including myself). He is easy to read and difficult to put down.
To the skeptics: I was once a skeptic. It was not a brief reading of one or two apologetic works that convinced me; instead, it was months and months of hard research, with this book as one of the many highlights. I encourage all to read this.
Morrison's book will forever remain one of my personal favorites.

5.0 out of 5 stars Earnest but flawed argument 9 Jun 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book was recommended to me by a Christian friend and, as a non-believer, I would thoroughly recommend it to others: believers and non-believers alike. The book is an earnest attempt to understand, in secular terms, the days up to and following Jesus' death. The thrust of the book is that everything at that time, except the resurrection of Jesus, is explainable in secular terms, therefore the resurrection must be true. For me, however, there are a number of flaws in the argument:

1. The author often has recourse to the 'truth is stranger than fiction' argument; or, "if the Gospel writers were going to make this up, they wouldn't have made this up". My issue with this is that the argument is made through the lens of the 20th century, not the 1st century.

2. The author makes a lot of the abrupt change in the disciples following the resurrection as evidence of the cathartic event they had experienced. In fact, he makes much of the 7 week gap between the crucifixion and the disciples first speech at the Feast. Anyone with children who have left home or even moved from junior to secondary school will know that seven weeks is plenty of time for a "sudden" change to occur.

3. The author often looks at the actions of the players (disciples, priests, etc.) in the immediate days following the crucifixion in terms of what Christianity became many years later. I can well imagine the immediate reaction of the priests being one that it was all nonsense (Jesus has risen but won't present himself) and would blow over. Think David Icke or Sabbatai Zevi for example.

4. Much is made of the women visiting the tomb and their inability to move the stone.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as I remember it 14 Oct 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I first read this book when I was about 15 and loved it, so when I saw it again I really wanted to read it. Unfortunately it did not have the same impact on me this time round. Obviously the book hasn't changed so it must be me. I found it rather tedious in parts even though the subject matter should be one of the most fascinating possible. I felt that the writer made some sweeping conclusions and presented them as fact. The biggest disappointment to me was, I still don't know who moved the stone....did I miss something ?

5.0 out of 5 stars Who maoved the Stone? 4 Dec 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Frank Morison I believe was a lawyer by profession. He was looking into Christianity and decided that it all hung on one event in history the Resurrection of Jesus; did it really happen? He decided to look into every aspect on the death, the cross, the burial, the Resurrection of Christ and to gather information in his stereotypical lawyer's method of gathering evidence meticulously. He decided to write a book that would 'once and fall' totally disprove Christ's / the Christian's claim that Jesus was risen from the dead and Ascended to the right hand of the Father God in Heaven. According to his own testimony, Frank Morison got about half way through writing his book disproving Christ's claims, because he became a Christian! He was fully convinced having examined the evidence presented to him through history that these amazing events in history actually happened as recorded in the four Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. When I first read the book over 20 years ago and read the world's version (s) of these events and got hot under the collar reading these fatuous excuses and pitiful lies of past ages and then as I read on I 'watched' how Frank Morison shot down in flames / shredded every argument that had been presented to dispute the Biblical events of Christ's life, death and Resurrection. Reading this book with not only restore you shattered faith if that be your case, but it will strengthen your belief and assurance of the Biblical accounts. If a Christian has to 'argue' with a non-believer concerning Christ's claims then "Who moved the stone?" will provide you with plenty of extremely helpful/useful ammunition!

Who Moved the Stone? was an enjoyable read.

Morison's main contention is to show that the tomb of Jesus was indeed empty on that first Easter morning. Read more

This is a good book but understandably the language is a bit dated and you have to have a detailed knowledge of the Gospels to fully appreciate it. Read more

the delivery speed and the price were excellent. The book itself was a disappointment it left more questions than it tried to answer. I wouldn't recommend it as a read.

Good book but not as cheap as expected. Apparently I have to write twelve more words so this is the bit to fill in the space. Yawn. Yawn.
