About the Book

He is risen indeed! Here are the best reasons why it’s true!

Culture is doing its best to convince the world there is nothing special about Jesus. And many Christians never get beyond a Sunday school understanding of their own faith. As a result, Christianity’s most important historical fact—the resurrection—is often the most misunderstood, relegated to Easter and funeral services, creating a powerless Christianity.

In Body of Proof, acclaimed apologist and scholar Dr. Jeremiah Johnston sets out to show why Jesus’ victory over death is central to a believer’s faith. Straightforward, accessible, and practical, this book examines the latest archaeological and textual findings and presents seven tangible, fresh reasons to believe Jesus really rose from the dead—and why it matters today as the foundation of our hope in the face of suffering and grief. When you fully understand the implications of the resurrection, you will begin to understand the power of Christ in you. This changes everything.

As Dr. Gary Habermas writes in the foreword, “Dr. Johnston realizes that a solid case for the resurrection involves both head and heart working together… This is a huge task, and Dr. Johnston needs to be given credit for jumping in with both feet and in the process showing the reader how all these various tasks can be combined in order to bring about a truly beautiful, fully orbed answer to the ongoing quest for truth, meaning, beauty, and peace—even for eternity!”
