Dr. Clifford selects some of the most prominent lawyers of modern times to sift through the evidence on the most influential figure of history. He describes the lawyers’ professional backgrounds, outlines their contributions to this 2000-year-old debate and reinforces their conclusions by some careful research of his own. A compelling case is made for the familiar claim of the Apostles’ Creed: “On the third day he rose again.” While the author believes that “the evidence would convince a court of law,” he argues that we can’t leave the matter there. The phenomenon of the resurrection strikes at the very heart of who we are and how we view human existence.

Editorial Reviews

'This little book will greatly help people understand the strength of the rational case for Christianity. It is written in a clear, interesting style and is eminently suitable for the general reader.' - The Catholic Weekly'If you have friends who believe that the account of the life of Jesus in the Gospels is a fairy tale, a piece of Jewish mythology, or that Jesus' resurrection was a figment of the disciples' fertile imagination, then this book is a useful broom to be applied to their thinking. It will make them consider again what they have prejudicially dismissed.' - Lawyers Christian Fellowship NewsletterThe biographical sketches of the lawyers are all interesting, and the evidence and arguments are spelled out clearly with forensjc precision.' - Kel Richards, On Being'This is a timely and significant addition to the post-modern debate on the Christ event. In short, in a period of Christian revival, this is a significant book, which every lawyer should read.'- David Kilgour, lawyer, M.P., House of Commons, Canada, Christian Legal Journal
