This fast-paced work by a nuclear engineering executive with more than thirty-five years of experience will defy expectations. Rigorous and systematic, this apologetic work is curated with verve, energy, and wit. It will pique the interests of academics and lay audience alike by answering these questions:
-Why is the resurrection a necessary but not sufficient condition for the rise of Christianity?
-Who founded Christianity? Hint: it was not Saint Paul, as many suppose.
-Why did the church retain all of the Hebrew Bible, even though only a small fraction pertains directly to the New Testament?
