Albert Henry Ross (1881–1950), (pseudonym Frank Morison), was an English journalist and novelist.

Ross grew up in Stratford-upon-Avon, England.[1] Using the pseudonym Frank Morison, he wrote Who moved the stone?,[2] first published in 1930, which analyzes texts about the events related to the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth. The book has been repeatedly reprinted (in 1944, 1955, 1958, 1962, 1977, 1981, 1983, 1987, 1996 and 2006).[3]

Ross claimed to be a skeptic regarding the resurrection of Jesus, and set out to analyze the sources and to write a short paper entitled Jesus – the Last Phase to demonstrate the apparent myth.[4] In compiling his notes, he came to be convinced of the truth of the resurrection, and set out his reasoning in the book Who moved the stone?. Many people have claimed to have become Christian after reading the book, and some have used the work as a reference for more work on the subject.

There are some who criticise Ross’ work. Some claim that Ross was never really skeptical of Christianity and merely embraced orthodox beliefs, never really challenging the authenticity of the texts.[5]
