Show synopsis The Resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth is the central tenet of the Christian faith. Resurrected? is a remarkable dialogue between the leading Christian scholar of the Resurrection and the world's best-known philosophical atheist. Both participants agree to 12 separate historical facts that occurred when Jesus died and shortly afterward. Habermas and Flew then explore how each of their perspectives could account for what happened. The discussion examines subjects such as medical details regarding crucifixion, extra-biblical sources for Jesus, the Jesus Seminar, St. Paul's conversion experience, and his contribution to the early Christian testimony. This exchange, marked by mutual respect and exceptional clarity of thought and expression, is a book that will appeal to a wide audience of believers, seekers and non-believers. The topic is timely, the participants renowned, and the presentation inviting to both scholar and layperson.
