I am very excited about Blake coming – May 24, 2013 at 8:00 p.m. Eastern time. Blake provided the following bio and comes highly recommended by our beloved, Tactfully. Blake will give a presentation of about 30 minutes on the topic of “The Historical Case for Jesus’ Resurrection” and then field questions by mic for an undetermined period of time. Be here, guys -this should be a great discussion!

My name is Blake Giunta. As an enthusiast, I’ve been studying apologetics for over 10 years with special emphasis on philosophy and the historical case for Jesus’ resurrection. In that vein, I just gave a two-part talk in March to the ReasonableFaith UTD group on Jesus’ resurrection, which was well received. I help answer online questions at CARM.org, the Christian Apologetics Alliance, and I’ll soon be launching an innovatively interactive apologetics website of my own.

In addition to the books I’ve read on the historical Jesus simpliciter, here are some relevant books I’ve read which are devoted to the topic of Jesus’ Resurrection:

Allison’s – Resurrecting Jesus
Brown’s – Death of the Messiah, Volume 1 & 2
Carnap’s – The Structure of Resurrection Belief
Copan & Tacelli (eds) – Jesus’ Resurrection: Fact or Figment?
Craig’s – Assessing the New Testament Evidence for the Historicity of the Resurrection of Jesus
Crossan & Wright – The Resurrection of Jesus
Habermas and Licona’s – The Historical Case for Jesus’ Resurrection
Hallquist’s – UFOs, Ghosts, and a Rising God: Debunking the Resurrection of Jesus
