At Answers in Genesis, we’re always on the lookout for new resources that will equip you and your family to answer skeptical questions about God’s Word. Now, I’ve taught for years that when Christians give up a literal Genesis, it can put people on a slippery slide of unbelief through the rest of Scripture. It’s important not only to study creation apologetics but also general Bible apologetics.
Tim Chaffey (content manager at our Ark Encounter project) has just released a new book on the Resurrection called In Defense of Easter: Answering Critical Challenges to the Resurrection of Jesus.
In his new book, Chaffey deals with this event that is key to the gospel. The Apostle Paul wrote that “if Christ is not risen, your faith is futile; you are still in your sins!” The Apostle Paul certainly saw the Resurrection as an event that really happened and is vital to the gospel message—and so should we! Here’s how In Defense of Easter is described in our webstore:
Without the Resurrection, there is no hope.
We would still be in our sins, and the Christian faith could not exist. Jesus would be a fraud since He frequently predicted His own resurrection, even designating it as His sign for an unbelieving world.
Skeptics and critics understand the magnitude of the Resurrection, and they have developed numerous theories in their desperate attempts to explain away the wealth of evidence. The early Christians focused uniquely on Christ’s conquering of death. Yet many in the church today only discuss the this vital doctrine at Easter time, and some fail to mention it entirely when attempting to share the gospel with unbelievers.
In Defense of Easter is a biblical and timely apologetic resource that teaches readers:
- How history and archaeology support the Resurrection
- Why skeptical explanations come up short
- How the Resurrection provides hope and comfort
- Whether Easter is a pagan holiday
Equip yourself to answer today’s skeptical challenges and strengthen your confidence in the risen Savior. Discover why everything hinges on the Resurrection of Jesus Christ.
The book includes a chapter explaining the strong connection between a literal understanding of the early chapters of Genesis and the Resurrection of Jesus. In Defense of Easter is available for preorder today, and copies will ship by April 12.
I urge you to get your copy of this excellent resource today—and share it with your family, friends, and pastors this Easter!
