Explore the historical evidence for what happened to Jesus after his death using only the minimal facts accepted by the vast majority of scholars. Watch a video demonstration at http://bit.ly/iWitness-Video
See which explanation for what happened to Jesus makes the best sense of the evidence. The theories include:
• Stolen Body
• A Legend Invented by Jesus' Followers
• A Legend that Evolved Over Time
As you explore you'll learn the fate of Jesus' twelve disciples, what happens to a person when they are scourged and crucified, the oldest part of the New Testament, the strange challenge of St. Paul to people who want to deny the Resurrection, why the Tomb of the Holy Sepulchre is built where it is, the unusual combination of wounds on the man in the Shroud of Turin, and much more.
Resurrection iWitness is so graphically rich that you'll be immersed in the photos, diagrams, books, writings, and reports as if they were actually in front of you.
Written, compiled, and designed by Doug Powell, author of The Holman QuickSource Guide to Christian Apologetics.
"Studies repeatedly show that we are losing our teens by the droves, often due to challenges aimed at the truth of major Christian doctrines. Arguably, there has never been a time when teaching apologetics to our young people is so crucial. The resurrection of Jesus Christ should be the central focus of discussions regarding the truth of Christianity. That’s why Doug Powell’s book on this subject is so vital. It includes cutting-edge distinctions that are presented in a fast-moving format that absolutely dares you to try and look away. I’ve never seen anything like it. I recommend it highly."
—Gary R. Habermas, Distinguished Research Professor, Liberty University & Theological Seminary
"Doug Powell has created a wonderful resource that's full of information laid out in an aesthetically pleasing format. In a brief manner, he presents the major evidence for the historical event of Jesus' resurrection and shows why competing hypotheses simply come up short. Highly recommended!"
—Michael Licona, Ph.D., author, The Resurrection of Jesus: A New Historiographical Approach
"Doug Powell's iPad app is fantastic. The words 'creativity' and 'apologetics' don't normally go together and that's a shame. Powell has created a visually stunning and academically astute learning/witnessing product that I hope gets downloaded far and wide. This app is so well done that it will draw in believer and unbeliever alike and present the powerful historical evidence of Jesus' conquest of death. Any Christian with an iPad should have this app. You never know when you are going to sit next to Richard Dawkins on a bus!"
—Craig J. Hazen, Ph.D., Biola Univeristy
What's New in Version 1.1
Includes projection capability for iPad1, excellent for group presentations.
The facts point one way
This is a really fun app, and shows the historical facts which aren't in scholarly dispute. He then runs the naturalistic theories against these facts and shows that they all fail. He shows that the only explanation that fits the facts is the one the disciples gave, that God raised Him from the dead. The haunting music can be a bit annoying, and the medieval artwork is a bit off-putting (to me anyway.)
Does what is says on the tin, making accessible a lot of information most people wont read. The typography makes it bit hard to read.
I'll be honest, I'm not a religious person and don't believe Jesus (as in the miracle worker) existed.
That being said, I thoroughly enjoyed this app and the myth/reality surrounding what took place. Interesting either way.
