Description of Ralph O. Muncaster, author of What Is the Proof for the Resurrection?:
As much as proof is possible, Muncaster "proves" the resurrection of Jesus. Culling his information from authors like Walter Elwell, Josh McDowell, Hugh Ross and others, Muncaster shows why belief in the resurrection is not only rational, but logical and "scientific" as well.For Muncaster, there are three important questions to answer about Easter:Did Jesus really exist?What is Easter all about?Why does Jesus matter?To answer these questions, Muncaster looks at science, history, archaeology and theology, offering one of the most concise looks at the resurrection available.He documents Jesus' life, crucifixion and resurrection, as far as documentation is possible (and further than other established historical facts have been documented). Particularly insightful is his analysis of the connection between several major feasts in the Jewish calendar which were fulfilled exactly (to the day) in Jesus. He also looks at the role of prophecy, both in the Jewish scriptures and from Jesus himself, arguing that the accuracy and fulfillment of related prophecies is statistically impossible if God is not behind them.In a day and age where proof is considered impossible by many, Muncaster sets out a very convincing case, arguing that "abundant evidence exists for the first Easter and the tremendous message it brings to mankind. Hence, we might reject God out of apathy...or out of pride...or for many other reasons. But we have no basis to reject God for lack of evidence if we take time to seek it." The evidence is there, and people must choose to believe it.
