Product Description

Was the resurrection of Jesus a fact of history or a figment of imagination? Was it an event that entailed a raised and transformed body and an empty tomb? Or was it a subjective, visionary experience-a collective delusion? In the view of many, the truth of Christianity hangs on the answer to this question.

Jesus' Resurrection: Fact or Figment is a lively and provocative debate between Christian philosopher and apologist William Lane Craig and New Testament scholar and atheist Gerd Ludemann. This published version of a debate originally set at Boston College invites the responses of two additional scholars on either side of the issue. Robert Gundry, a New Testament scholar and Stphen Davis, a philosopher, argue in support of a historical and actual resurrection, while Goulder and Roy Hoover, both New Testament scholars, offer their support for Gerd Ludemann's view that the resurrection was based on a guilt-induced visionary experience of the disciples.

Was the resurrection of Jesus a fact of history or a figment of imagination? Was it an event that entailed a raised and transformed body and an empty tomb? Or was it a subjective, visionary experience--a collective delusion? In the view of many, the truth of Christianity hangs on the answer to this question. Jesus' Resurrection: Fact or Figment? is a lively and provocative debate between Christian philosopher and apologist William Lane Craig and New Testament scholar and atheist Gerd LÜdemann. This published version of a debate originally set at Boston College is edited by Paul Copan and Ronald K. Tacelli, who invite the responses of four additional scholars. Robert Gundry, a New Testament scholar, and Stephen Davis, a philosopher, argue in support of a historical and actual resurrection. Michael Goulder and Roy Hoover, both New Testament scholars, offer their support for Gerd LÜdemann's view that the "resurrection" was based on the guilt-induced visionary experience of the disciples. The book concludes with a final response from LÜdemann and Craig.

    I read this book a few years ago, so I will review it. I do recommend it. I thought it was quite good. William Lane Craig (the Christian) certainly does not loose the debate. He gives a great offense and defense of the resurrection of Christ. He is one of todays greatest defenders of the Christian faith. If he did not do a good job in this book, then we do not have any good apologists. Thankfully he did great. Ludemann simply was not able to counter Craigs argument no matter how he tried. I am not saying Ludemann is a dummy, it's just that Craig is a brilliant philosopher and debater and he is difficult to counter.

    This is an interesting book, but unconvincing. While I certainly believe that the case for the resurrection is better than the case against it, I definitely think that in this debate, the Christian lost.
