Evidence for the Resurrection by Josh McDowell and Sean McDowell

This is a book on my to read list like so many others. I feel inadequate at times when people ask some of these hard questions. Skimming through this book and Lee Strobel's book, The Case for the Real Jesus, I have found some great information. Check out these books to learn more.

Back of Book Says:

Did Jesus Rise from the Dead?

When Jesus died on the cross, it seemed that all had been lost. Death had won. But after three days in a rich man’s tomb, Jesus appeared… alive! The news was so shocking that his followers refused to believe it until they saw him with their own eyes and touched his wounds with their own hands. Then Jesus made an amazing claim: In the future, they would have resurrected bodies like his, bodies that would never deteriorate, age or perish. They would have new life without death or pain, in the presence of a loving God forever.

But can we believe his promise? For that matter, can we really believe that the promise was made by a man who rose from the dead? In this fascinating look at the claims of the Gospel writers and 2,000 years of believing Christians, bestselling author Josh McDowell and his son Sean invite you to examine the compelling and abundant evidence that Jesus Christ conquered death and the grave. And they challenge you to answer this question: If Jesus rose from the dead 2,000 years ago, what does it mean for me today?
