4.0 out of 5 stars Much needed study of the heart of Christian Belief!, October 24, 2002
This review is from: Resurrection: Theological and Scientific Assessments (Paperback)
This is a great set of essays by some very learned and reader friendly Theologians and Scientists. Though the subject is a very weighty and complex one, the essays are understandable, to the average person for the most part. I like the fact that they take the Christian claim of Resurrection seriously, and try to understand it from a perspective of a culture shaped by Science. I do wish an essay or two would have addressed the historical questions in particular. Though the excellent essay by German Theologian Michael Welker did touch on this, in relationship to the New Testament accounts of Jesus' Resurrection. This book is one of those that brings up so many different aspects of its subject that it cries out for more studies along its same lines, of possibly more depth. Another very good essay is the one by another German Theologian, Gunter Thomas. In fact this essay was the most helpfull and interesting one for Me. He makes an excellent point of the crucial role of God's Spirit, the Holy Spirit, of Christian Belief, role in the Resurrection of Jesus Christ and of our Resurrection in the Eschauton. This article makes the Spirit very tangible, in that it is the Concrete causal power behind and in all Created reality. That the Spirit is not a sort of Wraith like entity. This of course relates to all the various aspects of Christian belief about God, such as the Trinity and so forth. I highly recommend this book. I write this as just a interested laymen, but I do believe I have a much better grasp of "What" the resurrection was and is, with all do respect and humility, as to how much more we don't understand or know. Thats just how it has always been, this side of Eternity. To any who struggle with skepticism and doubts, and who doesn't, in this skeptical age, this book is a breath of fresh air, in the seriousness, with which a takes the Christian claim of Resurrection. A very rare thing thesedays, Sad to say. Thank you for reading my review. Do yourself a favor and buy this book. Sincerely Richard Woodhouse Bradford PA.

This view is accepting of the contention of the resurrection as a fact, a priori. I wonder whether the book also takes this uncritical tack. I suspect not. I too would welcome a historical discussion, and one that focuses on the more plausible explanation of a needed hoax to bolster social cohesion in an early world of dissent from the larger political power.

Well, William, you could read it yourself, and then post your comment, rather than 'suspecting' what the book does or does not contain.
