This book contains a wealth of information about the resurrection of Jesus, and is extremely informative, provided that one has the determination to work through it in a very systematic way.

The book is really in three sections. There is the main narrative, which contains many interesting comments but in which it is difficult to follow the main run of the argument. This is followed by an appendix which outlines the arguments without the detail. This is easy enough to follow, but you have to keep going back to the main section for the full flavour of the argument. Finally there are extensive footnotes which contain the data on which the arguments are built. I needed three bookmarks and a pencil to follow the arguments through these three sections; no one of them was fully comprehensible on its own.

The book also seems to assume that the reader is someone who is already convinced that Jesus rose from the dead and who is attempting to memorise a set of arguments that can be used to convince more sceptical interlocutors rather than providing a full investigation into the issue.

However, if you have the dedication to work through the rather difficult organisation of the book there is much information there and it is very useful.

I've had this book for a year or two now and the more I go back to it the more I realise what a truly excellent volume this is. The authors set out a Minimal facts approach to defending the resurrection, what this means is that they are appealing to 5 historical points that even the most liberal of scholars would agree with. This is used as the basis for their argument that the resurrection was a historical event.

Each chapter is well written and will be a super resource for either the christian looking for clarity on this subject or for the seeker and skeptic. The appendix is excellent and provides a summary of the evidence provided and draws on writings from historians and other church writings around the 1st/2nd centuries.

Well worth the money and you also get a free CD resource which is excellent aswell.

This is way too in depth for average people who just want to strengthen their faith. I'm afraid it went a little over my head! For serious theology students and academics (definitely not me) this book would be great.

The most thorough and convincing in depth look at the evidence for the most important thing that is reported to have ever happened in the universe. A big burden on the shoulders of Habermas and Licona.
