The Structure of Resurrection Belief

The Structure of Resurrection Belief

Book - 1987
Rate this:
Faith in the resurrection of Jesus Christ is absolutely central to the Christian religion. This book deals critically with some of the more serious attempts of the world's leading theologians over the past hundred years to handle the resurrection of Christ conceptually, testing for logical coherence the works of B.F. Westcott, Wolfhalt Pennenberg, Karl Barth, Rudolf Bultmann, Edward Schillebeeckx, Willi Marxsen, Geoffrey Lampe, John Knox and others. Beyond this, the book attempts to articulate-- positively and constructively--a logically coherent epistemology of faith in the resurrection of Christ, respecting the authority of the scriptural traditions as they are now understood by contemporary New Testament theologians, while remaining true to the transcendental dimensions of the resurrection as a divine mystery.
