Abstract:

"The Christ from Death Arisen demonstrates the missteps in reasoning that characterize objections to the Christian doctrine of Resurrection - Hume's fallacies, a variety of post-Renaissance exegesis, and outright assumptions without foundation. A rigorous methodological critique moves step-by-step and invites the reader to question every argument raised against the claim "He has risen."" "Author Robert Geis asserts that the nature of evidence, its epistemological and metaphysical groundings, gives the Resurrection investigator heightened clarity with which to study Christianity's central tenet. The Christ from Death Arisen is a valuable contribution to Resurrection scholarship that will surely deepen the area of study."--Jacket.
