Knowing the Truth About the Resurrection (Harvest House, 1996) p. 4
Throughout history, people have wanted to know the meaning of their lives, but most have never found it. Great philosophers and commoners alike have agonized over the answers to the deepest of personal philosophical questions: Is there a God? Who or what is He? Who are we? What is the purpose of existence? Is life an accident of nature? Where did we come from? What happens when we die? Can we be certain of the truth or is everything relative? What are the implications for a life without meaning?
Could it be true that most people are skeptical today for the wrong reasons? What if real evidence exists to frankly answer the profound questions we have cited? What if little or no gamble is involved? What if this evidence can be checked, evaluated, sifted, critiqued—and yet still stand? Are you interested in examining this evidence? What if many of the greatest minds of history—skeptics and those trained in evaluating evidence alike—have concluded this evidence is unassailable? Can you logically ignore the implications?
It boils down to this: If the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead is true, this is the most unique and important event in human history. This would make Jesus Christ absolutely original and unique when compared to every other religious leader in history.
