Without the Resurrection, there is no hope. We would still be in our sins, and the Christian faith could not exist. Jesus would be a fraud since He frequently predicted His own Resurrection, even designating it as His sign for an unbelieving world. Skeptics and critics understand the magnitude of the Resurrection, and they have developed numerous theories in their desperate attempts to explain away the wealth of evidence. The early Christians focused uniquely on Christ's conquering of death. Yet many in the church today only discuss this vital doctrine at Easter time-and some fail to mention it entirely when attempting to share the gospel with unbelievers. In Defense of Easter is a biblical and timely apologetic resource that teaches readers: - How history and archaeology support the Resurrection - Why skeptical explanations come up short - How the Resurrection provides hope and comfort - Whether Easter is a pagan holiday Equip yourself to answer today's skeptical challenges and strengthen your confidence in the risen Savior. Discover why everything hinges on the Resurrection of Jesus Christ. Dr. Gary Habermas endorsed In Defense of Easter: "Challenges to Jesus' Resurrection are frequently made on the popular level, and answers must be forthcoming. Tim Chaffey's volume responds to many of these contemporary questions, as well as moving beyond arguments and evidences to the application of Resurrection truth. What difference can belief in the resurrection mean for believers today? This volume is an accessible handbook that covers a wide range of issues, both more theoretical as well as practical. I very much enjoyed my time with it, and recommend it to those who love this topic and are interested in material that is not readily available elsewhere."
