Here’s a doctoral dissertation that Liberty University’s Rawlings School of Divinity has made available titled “Philosophy of History, Historical Jesus Studies, and Miracles: Three Roadblocks to Resurrection Research.”   I imagine this would be a treat and food for thought for those into apologetics, history and historical methodology.  I myself am fascinated with these areas.

The dissertation was written by Benjamin C. F. Shaw and was completed on May 2020 as part of his completion of his Doctor of Philosophy in Theology and Apologetics (PhD).  I am thankful Liberty University has made this thesis available online for free.

Here’s an abstract:

The Absurdity of Unbelief

Jeffrey Johnson. The Absurdity of Unbelief.  Conway, AR: Free Grace Press, January 22, 2016. 350 pp.

4 out of 5
