Norman Geisler on circular reasoning

…one cannot argue that the resuscitation of Jesus of Nazareth’s body- granting that it did resuscitate – is an act of God (miracle) that proves Christian theism to be true. For only if this is already a theistic universe to begin with can one even interpret this event to be a miraculous resurrection or act of God. If to interpret an event as a resurrection or act of God presupposes God’s existence, then an event so interpreted cannot be used as proof of God’s existence. (Geisler, Christian Apologetics, p. 139, 1976)
