IRVINE, Calif., April 6, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Honey-baked ham, bunnies, candy, and festive family egg hunts are commonly associated with Easter, but this Christian holiday rests squarely on one thing: the historical resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. If that event didn't happen, then, as St. Paul says, "Christians are of all [people] most to be pitied." That is, if Christianity's claims are false, the Christian faith is futile, and the entire Christian enterprise loses all meaning. St. Paul also said that all that would remain in the face of a cold and unpredictable existence is to, "Eat, drink and be merry." But what if the resurrection actually happened?

That is the key question, and this new book, The Resurrection Fact, addresses skeptical arguments from popular, non-Christian authors and offers clear and concise rebuttals, together with the positive arguments for the actual, historical, physical resurrection of Jesus Christ.
Drs. Bombaro and Francisco have found able representatives from the disciplines of biblical studies, history, philosophy, and the legal profession to write each chapter.
The book was written for a broad audience and is ultimately designed to equip its readers to defend this seminal fact: the historicity of Jesus' resurrection.
