Originally published in 1988, this is a clear and brilliant examination of the evidence for the resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ. Val Grieve was a lawyer and so the evidence is presented with care and due regard for proper procedure. The text has been updated where necessary, making this is a fine book to give to anyone asking questions about the core doctrine of the Christian faith.
‘Val Grieve's classic defense of the resurrection is back! Grab copies for yourself and friends. Clear, simple, compelling. One of my favorite books to give a skeptic.'
Mark Dever, Capitol Hill Baptist Church, Washington DC
'An atheist university student once told me, 'I am not sure what I believe about Jesus Christ – but I know that everything hinges on whether he rose again from the dead.' If I had had Your Verdict with me at the time I would have immediately given him a copy. Clear, coherent and convincing, it is by far the best presentation in this format of the evidence everyone should urgently consider.'
John Blanchard, Author of Does God Believe in Atheists?
'In this gripping book the sharpest legal mind thoroughly scrutinises the historical evidence for Jesus' resurrection from the dead, and comes to the conclusion that the case is absolutely water tight. Now it is for the skeptic to consider the arguments and if they really are so convincing, respond to them. The verdict has big consequences for every juror.’
Roger Carswell, Author and Speaker
