The Jesus Inquest

Charles Foster

$13.99

Paperback
The Resurrection: Myth or History?

Most books defending the Resurrection do not give adequate room to the arguments against. Charles Foster presents key points as a heated, no-holds barred debate between barristers.

'There are grounds for Christian confidence,' says the author. 'The best way of demonstrating that is to have a fair fight.'

The key arguments against the Resurrection, all of which Foster deals with robustly, include: The evidence is hopelessly fragmentary; Jesus did not die on the Cross; it was highly unlikely the Romans would hand a body over; why should the Romans really bother to guard the tomb of a tin-pot Messiah?; Mark's Gospel is the primary source for both Matthew and Luke, and Mark does not deal at all with post-Resurrection appearances.

Charles Foster is a barrister, explorer, and author of 19 books and hundreds of articles, on topics ranging from the law to veterinary medicine and exploration. He teaches medical law and ethics at Oxford University and is a frequent guest on Premier Radio. He and his wife, a doctor, are members of Holy Trinity Brompton.
