                "The Real Big Bang"..Discovery
Below is a list of people that have either attempted to disprove the resurrection of Jesus Christ or just challenged the key beliefs of Christianity.  Below is a glimpse of their stories and brief overview of what they did.

John Warwick Montgomery - 
 

Montgomery began by discussing the possibility of a position which had so much evidence that it becomes difficult to not believe. Despite this, people do not hold that position. The reason, he argued, is because reasons other than evidence play into one’s conversion. Moreover, we live in a pluralistic age, which means that there are a vast array of options available to people looking for a worldview. This pluralism necessitates a drop in conversion rates because there are more worldviews presenting their evidence to each individual. Thus, it is important to look into the issue of the burden of proof alongside the issue of the standard of proof.

 Montgomery was pursuing a degree in philosophy at Cornell University. Like most students of philosophy, Montgomery was skeptical of religious ideology and uninterested in the concept of God. It was a student of engineering rather than a philosopher or theologian that challenged his preconceptions.

The short story is that John Montgomery looked at the evidence, practically and intellectually (a big struggle for many) and was convinced that Jesus Christ is who he said he was.  John said, "The day following Christ’s entry into the center of my consciousness, even the leaves on the trees seemed to glow with a new splendor. Later I would read Luther’s comment, when talking about the Real Presence of the Lord in the Eucharist, that “Christ is present in the leaf of every tree”—a truth entirely backed up by Colossians 1:12-17.

Lloyd Littleton and Gordon West - 

These two gentlemen are alumni of Oxford University and during the 1840's they both got tired of the 

non-stop Chrisitian "preachy" folks tossing around there beliefs on everyone.   Gordon and Lloyd decided

to prove once and for all that the account of the conversion of Saul to the Apostle Paul and that the 

resurrection of Jesus Christ never really happened.  If they come up with solid evidence that these events 

never happened than that would shut down this whole "Christian thing".

Several months went by as they carefully examined the accuracy of the New Testament and prophecies in the Old Testament.  The looked at all the historical data they could get there hands on, remember they had access to lots of material at Oxford and universities nearby.   They both ended up converting to Christianity and believed in Jesus Christ as being the Messiah, the Savior of the World and they accepted everything that the Bible states to be true.  The data and evidence is overwhelmingly clear and yet

simply logical.

“Observations on the Conversion and Apostleship of St. Paul” by Lloyd Littleton and “Observations on the History and Evidences of the Resurrection of Jesus Christ” by Gilbert West became well known publications and later was made into a book.

Lee Strobel - 

Lee was a staff writer for the Chicago Tribune and was in charge of the legal section covering major 

court cases.  He decided one day to investigate the claims that Jesus was the Savoir and look at the

accuracy of the Bible.
