Product Description

Our world and our churches are neither sinful nor lost, they are dead. This dead world is the one that God engages and into which Jesus invaded with a radically different vision of life.

In this groundbreaking work, based on his 211 Yale Beecher lectures, Brian K. Blount helps preachers effectively proclaim resurrection in a world consumed by death. Recognizing that both popular culture and popular Christianity are mesmerized by death and dying, Blount offers an alternative apocalyptic vision for our time--one that starts with a clear vision of life that obliterates death and reveals life's essence. Blount explores the portrait and meaning of resurrection through the New Testament (the Book of Revelation, the letters of Paul, and the Gospel of Mark) and explores how to biblically and theologically reconfigure apocalyptic preaching for today. With three illustrative sermons, this book is an ideal resource to help preachers proclaim the power of resurrection.

Author Bio

Brian K. Blount is President and Professor of New Testament at Union Presbyterian Seminary in Richmond, Virginia. He is the author of many books, including Revelation: A Commentary, Can I Get a Witness? Reading Revelation through African-American Culture, and Preaching Mark in Two Voices.

Endorsements

Brian Blount has written a life-giving, faith-building work that will revitalize not only preachers, but any thoughtful Christian willing to wrestle with how the cross has been misinterpreted and employed for abusive ends. His book is especially timely in a worldwhere religion, including much of what passes for Christianity, colludes with violent and destructive powers. Blount confronts the pathologies of faith and preaching that have incubated in death and sin, and audaciously claims the healing possibilities that are opened through the resurrection of Jesus Christ.
-Thomas H. Troeger,
Yale Divinity School & Institute of Sacred Music

This is, quite simply, a stunning book on resurrection, the deepest mystery and the boldest claim of the Christian gospel. Brian Blount is a master biblical interpreter, but here he shows himself equally gifted at theological inquiry and cultural analysis. The result is that he not only recovers a compelling biblical vision of resurrection for today, he also knocks off centuries of rust in the church's misunderstanding and enables the resurrection to shine again as the invasion of God's power into a world occupied and preoccupied with death.
-Thomas G. Long,
Candler School of Theology

Brian Blount's new book on the importance of apocalyptic eschatology for understanding the gospel message combines in a winning and profound way a scholar's careful historical analysis of the biblical texts with a preacher's vivid articulation of the issues at stake for our world and our time. Blount's attempt to reclaim and to reinvigorate the apocalyptic worldview found in the New Testament for preaching in the contemporary American context succeeds masterfully.
-Martinus C. de Boer,
Vrije Universiteit, Amsterdam

Editorial Reviews

"The word 'apocalyptic' sends many readers of Scripture into flight. No so Brian Blount, who knows both that apocalyptic theology is central to the New Testament and that popular culture reveals an obsession with apocalyptic scenarios. Invasion of the Dead takes up the Book of Revelation, the letters of Paul, and the Gospel of Mark and weaves a provocative conversation with both secular culture and the dispirited culture of American Christianity. The result is genuinely apocalyptic proclamation--a word that is convicting, energizing, and profoundly hopeful. This goes on the required reading list!"--Beverly R. Gaventa, Distinguished Professor of New Testament Interpretation, Baylor University
