Buried Hope or Risen Savior? asserts the credibility of Jesus Christ's resurrection, engaging the issue in relation to ongoing reports that suggest archaeologists recently "discovered" the bones of Jesus in an East Talpiot ossuary near Jerusalem. Editor Charles Quarles has put together a remarkable team of evangelical scholars, including an archaeologist, a statistician, an expert on Jewish ossuaries, and New Testament and historical Jesus scholars, so that each controversial claim can be addressed by a true expert in that respective field.
