I’m wondering if anyone can provide me some book titles for the evidence of the Resurrection, or the “Passion” in general.
I know that Raymond E. Brown and N.T. Wright did a series of books about Jesus and the evidence for his historicity (as well as the Resurrection)…are these highly recommended? From what I have seen they are quite “meaty” books (700-900 pages). I enjoy highly detailed books if they’re easy to understand. Being somewhat familiar with Brown’s works (An Introduction to New Testament Christology) and Wright’s (his Bible study series, at least) I am wondering if there are some more general titles out there that aren’t as colossal in terms of being nearly 1,000 pages.
Does Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI’s “Jesus of Nazareth” book titles go into evidence for the historicity of Jesus and evidence for his Resurrection? I read some of the first volume in this series and at least from what I read, he talked about the historical-critical method. Didn’t get to far into that book so I don’t know how it compares to the other volumes in the series.
The closest “general apologetics” book I could find at the bookstore about the existence of Jesus/evidence for the Resurrection was “The Case for Christ” by Lee Stroebel. Is this book worth a read?
