Saint Augustine on the Resurrection of Christ : Teaching, Rhetoric, and Reception, Hardback Book

Saint Augustine on the Resurrection of Christ : Teaching, Rhetoric, and Reception Hardback


Despite an enormous amount of literature on St Augustine of Hippo, this work provides the first examination of what he taught about the resurrection of Jesus Christ.

Augustine expounded Christ's resurrection in his sermons, letters, Answer to Faustus the Manichean, the City of God, Expositions of the Psalms, and the Trinity.

Saint Augustine on the Resurrection of Christ: Teaching, Rhetoric, and Reception explores what Augustine held about the centrality ofChrist's resurrection from the dead, the agency of Christ's resurrection, and the nature of his risen existence.

Leading scholar, Gerald O'Collins, investigates the impact of his resurrection on others and his mediatory role as the risen High Priest.

O'Collins then unpicks Augustine's rhetorical justificationfor the resurrection of Christ: evidence from creation, human history, and the desires of all human beings.

This groundbreaking study illustrates the enduring significance of Augustine's teaching on and apologetic for the resurrection, and updates, augments, and corrects what Augustine held.
