As the team did with the book, Making the Case For Christianity (CPH), Drs. Bombaro and Francisco bring together a variety of contemporary Lutheran apologists to respond to a wide array of challenges to the heart of the Christian faith.

Each chapter addresses a specific argument from a popular, non-Christian author and offers a clear and concise rebuttal and argument for the resurrection.

The editors have found able representatives from the disciplines of biblical studies, history, philosophy, and the legal profession to write each chapter.

The book is accessible, written for a broad audience, and is ultimately designed to equip its readers for the apologetics task.

This week the Cross Focused Reviewers share their thoughts on The Resurrection Fact: Responding to Modern Critics by John J. Bombaro and Adam S. Francisco.

The Resurrection Fact: Responding to Modern Critics is a compendium detailing the elements and weaknesses of the enemy’s assaults and the reasoning that gives thinking Christians more confidence in this core aspect of our theology”
Reviewer: Stuart Brogden
Rating: 4 Stars

“Anyone interested in Christian apologetics would be wise to become familiar with presuppositional apologetics.”
Reviewer: Chris Lawson
Rating: 4 Stars

“This readable account serves well as a basic introduction to apologetics for any Christian regardless of the level of prior knowledge. It serves pastors as a guide to encourage and equip his flock to bear witness to the Resurrection. This book serves any reader who wishes to read an account concerning the reasons Christians believe.”
Reviewer: Robert Marx
Rating: 4 Stars

“Highly recommended if you have read any of these critics… a good high quality work.”
Reviewer: Jonathan Roberts
Rating: 5 Stars

“The book combines scholarly research and a popular reading style so both academics and laypeople may readily understand the contents. Will be an excellent future reference for more study.”
Reviewer: Michael Taylor
Rating: 4 Stars

“Overall this book provides a good defense of the resurrection with each contributors demonstrating attention to details. I think this book would be a good one to place in the hands of students today as many will be confronted with objections that parallel those dealt with in this book.”
Reviewer: Steven Dressen
Rating: 5 Stars

“Throughout the book they not only reveal the facts, as discernible by a historian, but deal with the underlying presuppositions of the skeptical in analyzing the facts. The case made for the resurrection I believe is compelling.”
Reviewer: Aaron Meservey
Rating: 5 Stars

“The book is well-written and a relatively quick read, at least if the reader has a reasonable familiarity with theology and theological terms.”
Reviewer: Joe Westbrook
Rating: 5 Stars

“Because the resurrection is the center of Christian faith, Satan will continue to attack it. The goal will remain the same, but the approach will be different. “The Resurrection Fact: Responding to Modern Critics” comes onto scene to address the challenge.”
Reviewer: Bledar Valca
Rating:4 Stars
