Product Description

This book explores the resurrection of Jesus Christ as the foundational event for Christian faith, for the Christian church, and for Christian ethics. It argues that the resurrection is a relational event aiming at the establishing of justice. This is illustrated by discussing the interrelationship between the resurrection and selected social ethical challenges: race, class and gender equality, the ordination of women, ecological justice, and the relationship of Christianity to other religions. The book seeks to argue that Christian faith, grounded in the resurrection of Christ, needs to be concerned with unmasking injustice and implementing justice. The first two chapters engage with contemporary liberal and evangelical theologians, contending that the resurrection of Christ is a real and relational event. Chapters three and four suggest that resurrection faith implies a commitment to justice. Jesus was killed for justice related causes and by raising Jesus from the dead, God affirmed Jesus' vision of life and at the same time defeated the estranging powers of death. Chapters five and six illustrate the history changing nature of the resurrection by discussing its effect on history and society. Humanity's ethnic, economic and gender class divisions, the dignity of womanhood, the ecological challenge, and our relationship to other religions are discussed. Chapter seven reasons that international Christian discipleship is the most appropriate way of responding to the resurrection of the crucified Christ and as such to implement what justice requires.
