according to Dr David Anders of EWTN radio, the most comprehensive book on the resurrection of Jesus is N.T, Wright’s The Resurrection of the Son of God. I just got the book. Anders is right – this is not the book for everybody to read. I’m just getting into it, and have stopped to read a couple other books. The first chapter, though, show how technical his book is.
His goal is to explain what the Bible verses mean that say that Jesus was raised to life from the dead. Now, he reassures us that he believes in the gospel, but he’s taking us on a long journey. Otherwise, the first chapter deals with defining what is history? And, he explains that there are five different senses of what ‘history’ and ‘historical’ means. So, he’s just setting this up and getting started. I’m about 50 pages into about an 800 page book.
So, I pass this along as Dr Anders did, fyi.
Maybe I’m missing something, but does anybody deny that Jesus was a real person who died? It’s more significant that he rose from the dead.
