N.T. Wright on the Resurrection

I am currently reading a book entitled The Resurrection of the Son of God which is a 740 page book written by prominent Biblical scholar N.T. Wright. I must say he is quickly becoming one of my favourite authors and I still have the majority of the book left to read. I have said this before and I will reiterate it here when I say that in my opinion the historicity of the resurrection of Christ is the most important issue anyone can research with regards to the theism vs. atheism debates that are so popular now-a-days. While I still have a lot more of Wright's book to read so far I would recommend it to anyone who is interested in studying the resurrection. Here is a short video of N.T. Wright talking about it:

Obviously this is just a really short introductory video but like I said I think this is such an important topic. I should add that so far N.T. Wright's book is a little more advanced and in-depth compared to other books I have read on Christ and the resurrection. While I definitely recommend reading this one I would suggest reading The Case for the Resurrection of Jesus by Mike Licona and Gary Habermas first. It presents a more introductory case but is still fairly convincing.
