Publisher's Description

What will our resurrected bodies look like? Will we be young or old? Marked by the physical imperfections of our earthly lives? Does this flesh we carry now rise or is it something other? What does our modern knowledge of the world contribute to our understanding?

Brian Schmisek traces developments in the Christian understanding of resurrection, explores the topic in light of biblical data, and mines scientific insights. What results is a synthesis that expresses the essence of the apostolic kerygma in modern terms. Schmisek's impressive combination of solid theological and biblical scholarship with an accessible and welcoming style makes this book an excellent resource for adult education groups, deacon formation classes, undergraduates, and other nonspecialists.

Author Bio

Brian Schmisek is director of the Institute of Pastoral Studies at Loyola University Chicago. He is a coauthor of the Catholic Biblical School Program (Paulist Press) and the author of The Apostles Creed: Articles of Faith for the Twenty-First Century (NCEA).

Editorial Reviews

Well done! Brian Schmisek has compiled so much information from Scripture and the Christian tradition that Resurrection of the Flesh or Resurrection from the Dead in itself becomes a valuable resource for other scholars. His thesis is well-thought through and clearly presented.
Elizabeth A. Johnson, CSJ, Distinguished Professor, Systematic Theology, Fordham University

A thoughtful, honest, and well-documented study of the ways Christians have spoken about life after death and of ways they might continue to do so.
Gerald O'Collins, Professor Emeritus, The Gregorian University, Author of Believing in the Resurrection (Paulist Press, 2012)
