Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

"Dr. Stoffel combines the mind of a scholar with the heart of a pastor. The result is a treasure chest of homiletical grist for the serious preacher and a clear word of hope for all believers." - Rev. Dr. J. Thomas Kort, Senior Minister, Sardis Presbyterian Church, Charlotte, NC

"A welcome alternative to the Jesus Seminar's reductionism, Stoffel ranges across the New Testament to demonstrate its integrated and coherent witness to the resurrection. Stoffel treats seriously and sympathetically the struggle for faith in a secular culture, but this book is about God's sovernity, God's faithfulness, and God's victory over the powers of evils in and death. We need more books of this kind: Biblical scholarship that is rigorous and reverent, theological exposition that is clear and encouraging, an invitation to faith and hope that, in face of the "giant agony of the world," is nevertheless confident, grateful and, on occasion, even joyful." - John B. Rogers Jr., Covenant Presbyterian Church, Charlotte, NC

"This book could only have been written by one who combines honest scholarship, broad pastoral experience, and a deep personal faith in the reality of God's power in Christ. This combination is increasingly rare and as a result, thoughtful Christians often feel that they have nowhere to turn with their questions. The Apocalyptic Resurrection of Jesus is the best book on Easter that I have seen. It will become essential reading for all who want to grow in faith and understanding." - Richard A. Ray, Robert H. Menilly Professor of Leadership and Ministry Pittsburgh Theological Seminary, Pittsburgh, PA

"Using the lens of apocalyptic language and imagery, Lee Stoffel has written a clear and compelling account of the resurrection. Clergy and laypersons will benefit from his careful scholarship and his insights into resurrection and faith." - J.Norris Frederick, PhD., Chair, Department of Philosophy and Religion Queens College, Charlotte, NC

"Few preachers have stepped down from the Easter pulpit with confidence that his or her words proclaimed the whole truth of the day. Dr. Stoffel's Apocalyptic Resurrection provides help and comfort in identifying the New Testament writer's use of Apocalyptic language to best express the truth of Easter. This book equips the preacher to best express the truth of Easter. This book equips the preacher to proclaim the resurrection with intellectual integrity, and faithful hope." - Tom Are, Jr., Pastor, Riverside Presbyterian Church, Jacksonville, FL

"This is a compact, accessible introduction to the apocalyptic language with which Christians have described an indescribable hope. The author effectively argues that the truth behind this language's description of the resurrection has far greater implications than those that are typically drawn. Laypersons and preachers alike will find this to be useful and inspiring reading." - William G. Cockrill, Pastor, First Presbyterian Church, Huntsville, Alabama

I'm sorry, but this author is misled. Please look for a book by someone who actually believes what the Bible says. Some good authors to consider are John Walvoord, Chuck Swindoll, Skip Heitzig, Bill Salus, Charles Ryrie, and Tim LaHaye, to name a few.
