INTRODUCTION

Christianity has fundamentals. They are the cardinal doctrines relating to Jesus Christ. Destroy belief in any of them, and all are reduced to devitalized formulas of thinking and living.

One of these fundamentals, central to all, is the resurrection of Jesus. Without his resurrection, sin has no atonement, and there is no hope for our dead. Christianity itself is supported by false witnesses, as declared by the Apostle Paul.

Co-related to that subject are the incarnation, doctrine of the Holy Spirit, the death and ascension of Christ. These have been presented so many times in familiar form that their attractiveness is sicklied over. A fresh presentation from the scientific viewpoint by sound reasoning will do good.

The chapters of this volume have been constructed out of sermonic material, begotten by a yearning desire to convince doubters, answer disbelievers, and confirm Disciples of Christ. To render this threefold service, the author submits facts, quotes utterances of thinkers, applies Scripture and argues to logical conclusions from the premises he submits.
