The Christ From Death Arisen demonstrates the missteps in reasoning that characterize objections to the Christian doctrine of Resurrection-Hume's fallacies, a variety of post-Renaissance exegesis, and outright assumptions without foundation. A rigorous methodological critique moves step-by-step and invites the reader to question every argument raised against the claim "He has risen." Author Robert Geis asserts that the nature of evidence, its epistemological and metaphysical groundings, gives the Resurrection investigator heightened clarity with which to study Christianity's central tenet. The Christ From Death Arisen is a valuable contribution to Resurrection scholarship that will surely deepen the area of study.

In this extraordinary book, Geis takes on over a century of biblical studies. He counters the oft-repeated claim that interpretation of the Bible in the liberal, academic tradition is scientific, as he accuses academicians of anti-Christian bias. Geis uses reason, but more than that he uses a farmer-like common sense, which is often lacking in the academic world. -- Brian Welter, 29 May 2009 * The Catholic Herald, (Britain) *
"In the `Afterword' to this monograph, Robert Geis aptly describes as `labyrinthine' the path he takes as author of The Christ from Death Arisen. Completing a work of this magnitude requires a Herculean effort. Likely, only a handful of scholars in the world today have the skills that such a piece of research entails. While I am not one of them, Geis is. This work is a piece of philosophical scholarship of the highest order." -- Dr. Peter Redpath, Full Professor of Philosophy, St. John's University, author of Masquerade of the Dream Walkers: Prophetic Theology from the Cart
