Excerpt


Jesus is risen from the dead! In this set of six studies, Peter Bolt invites us to trace the theme of 'proclamation' through the gospel of Luke and the book of Acts. Jesus is clearly seen to be both the content and the reason for what Christians say to the world. He is the original proclaimer of his resurrection, and he gives us confidence to do the same. These 6 studies are suitable for small groups or individuals, and are ideal material for use in the period after Easter.

The commentary follows the creed phrase for phrase, as gives extensive commentary on each phrase from a diverse group of early Christians ranging from Justin Martyr to Gregory of Nazianzus, and from such well known authors as Augustine, to the very obscure such as Arnobius of Sicca.

As Christians we belive in the fact of Jesus' bodily resurrection. But does our Easter preaching inspire spiritual renewal or only rational assent? Have we allowed the fact to obscure the splendor, the argument to eclipse the new world that dawned with the resurrection of Jesus Christ?

Excerpt


The Resurrection of the Son of God offers an unparalleled treatment of Christ's resurrection. NT Wright's comprehensive argument covers 817 pages, giving weighty evidence in favor of the Church's traditional beliefs regarding the resurrection. Wright concludes that the early Christian answer that Jesus had indeed been bodily raised from the dead and was thus hailed as the messianic "Son of God" serves as the best historical explanation of these events given the evidence we currently possess.  Most deservedly, Wright's volume was awarded Best Academic Book and Book of the Year by the Association of Theological Booksellers (ATB) at the 2003 Theologos Awards.

Excerpt


Resurrection is the central feature of the New Testament gospels and lies at the center of many of Paul's letters as well. In addition, the doctrine of the resurrection lies at the core of the Christian church's faith. The essays in this stunning collection explore the idea of resurrection as the idea appears not only in the New Testament texts but also in the Dead Sea Scrolls, the pseudepigraphal Testaments of the Twelve Patriarchs, and in contemporary theology. Charlesworth asks where the concept of resurrection appears and the ways we know it, and he also examines the concept of resurrection in the Dead Sea Scrolls and the New Testament. Casey Elledge explores the earliest evidence we have for a notion of a resurrection of the dead and investigates the hope for Israel in Judaism and Christianity found in the Testaments. Crenshaw looks at the Hebrew Bible's ideas of resurrection, and Hendrikus Boers examines the meaning of Christ's resurrections in Paul's writings. W. Waite Willis explores a theology of resurrection.

Excerpt


What impact should Jesus' resurrection have on individuals and churches? Popular Christian blogger and teacher Adrian Warnock urges Christians not to neglect the implications of the resurrection.

Jesus truly is alive today. But compared to his atoning death, Jesus' resurrection sparks relatively little discussion in the church. Inadvertently, we can become so focused on the good news that Christ died for our sins, that we almost forget he was "raised for our justification" (Romans 4:25).

In Raised with Christ, author Adrian Warnock exhorts Christians not to neglect the resurrection in their teaching and experience. Warnock takes his cue from Acts, where every recorded sermon focuses on Jesus' resurrection. He stresses that Christians who faithfully proclaim both the death and the bodily resurrection of Jesus, and live out the implications of that message in vibrant, grace-filled churches, will be enabled to reach a world that lives in death's dark shadow.

The power of the risen Christ is active in every true Christian, transforming our lives. Raised with Christ will help you discover afresh the massive implications of the empty tomb. Jesus' resurrection really has changed everything.

This is a ground breaking study on a fundamental-Jewish and Christian-doctrine, the resurrection of the dead. As most Christians know resurrection is a central tenant of the Christian faith, but what many do not realize is that the doctrine is also an integral part of Judaism. Written by a Christian and a Jew, this volume will sure to be an inter-faith staple for people of both religions, and will contribute immensely not only to general dialogue between Jews and Christians, but to theological dialogue. For Christians who take seriously the Jewish roots of their faith this book is certainly a must read.

Excerpt


"Sure Christ was raised from the dead, but what does the resurrection have to do with my salvation, my day-to-day life, or the world around me?"

Christians usually understand why Christ's death is essential to the Faith, but many are unclear about the full significance of the resurrection. The early Church put great stress on the resurrection, but today the depth and breadth of its ground-shaking importance seems almost unknown, leading to skewed pictures of salvation, impotence in sanctification, erroneous views about the Last Days and the victorious Christian life.

In this bold new work, P. Andrew Sandlin explores the full meaning of the resurrection, explains why it is central to the gospel, clears age-old confusion about Christians' glorification and immortality, and exhibits the resurrection's life- and world-changing power.

In this study, Dunn examines the first-century origins of Christianity in the light of the twentieth-century biblical criticism. In this important apologetic for the Christian faith, he demonstrates why believers should welcome, not shun, the critical and investigative skills of scholars. Dunn focuses on four main questions: Are the gospels fact, fiction, or what? Did Jesus claim to be the Son of God? What did the first Christians believe about the resurrection? Was earliest Christianity one church or warring sects?

2009 Christianity Today Book Award of Merit in Theology and Ethics

"If you died tonight, do you know where you would go?" Christians for many years have been asking this question. As award-winning author N.T. Wright points out however, the answer isn't heaven. In Surprised by Hope, Wright, one of today's premier Bible scholars, asserts that Christianity's most distinctive idea is bodily resurrection. He provides a magisterial defense for a literal resurrection of Jesus and shows how this became the cornerstone for the Christian community's hope in the bodily resurrection of all people at the end of the age. Wright then explores our expectation of "new heavens and a new earth," revealing what happens to the dead until then and what will happen with the "second coming" of Jesus. For many, including many Christians, all this will come as a great surprise.

Wright convincingly argues that what we believe about life after death directly affects what we believe about life before death.

Excerpt


For too long contemporary theology has downplayed the importance of holding together the incarnation and the resurrection when thinking theologically. Paul Molnar here surveys the place of these key doctrines in the thought of several influential theologians: Karl Barth, Karl Rahner, Thomas F. Torrance, John Macquarrie, Gordon Kaufman, Sallie McFague, Roger Haight, John Hick, and Wolfhart Pannenberg.

Molnar demonstrates that whenever the starting point for interpreting the resurrection is not Jesus himself, the incarnate Son of the Father, then Christology and soteriology are undermined because they are not properly rooted in a plausible doctrine of the Trinity. Fair, comprehensive, and balanced, Molnar's analysis, following Torrance and Barth, highlights the details of contemporary theology of the resurrection linked to the incarnation and maintains the necessity of the incarnation in its intrinsic unity with the resurrection as the beginning, rather than the end, of Christology.
