The credibility of Christianity hangs on one straightforward question: did Jesus Christ come back to life a few days after he died and was buried? His character, his claims and his relevance for today all hinge on this one issue.
The spin-off is stupendous. If Jesus is now no more than a handful of dust and bones slowly crumbling away somewhere on the outskirts of Jerusalem, the entire Christian faith lies buried with him; all its martyrs were mistaken, all its reformers were deluded, all its church buildings are monuments to a myth, all its services are senseless and Easter Day is a sick joke. What is more, the millions of people who claim that he is a living Saviour who is transforming their lives are living in cloud cuckoo land.
In this dynamic publication, John Blanchard examines the evidence, assesses the alternatives, unpacks the conspiracy theories and shows why there is only one convincing answer to the question.
