The strangeness of the Resurrection story had captured Frank Morison's attention, and, influenced by skeptic thinkers at the turn of the century, he set out to prove that the story of Christ's Resurrection was only a myth. His probings, however, led him to discover the validity of the biblical record in a moving, personal way. Who Moved the Stone? is considered by many to be a classic apologetic on the subject of the Resurrection. Morison includes a vivid and poignant account of Christ's betrayal, trial, and death as a backdrop to his retelling of the climactic Resurrection itself. Among the chapter titles are: - The Book That Refused to Be Written - The Real Case Against the Prisoner - What Happened Before Midnight on Thursday - Between Sunset and Dawn - The Witness of the Great Stone - Some Realities of That Far-off Morning -- Who Moved the Stone? is a well-researched book that is as fascinating in its appeal to reason as it is accurate to the truthfulness of the Resurrection. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
'Frank Morison' is the pseudonym of English advertising agent and journalist Albert Henry Ross (1881-1950). The strangeness of the Resurrection story had captured his attention, and, influenced by skeptic thinkers at the turn of the century, he set out to write a short paper proving that it was only a myth. His investigations, however, convinced him that the resurrection really happened. The book he wrote about his quest Who Moved The Stone? has become an apologetics classic, since its first publication in 1930.
