Resurrection, Paperback / softback Book

Resurrection Paperback / softback

Part of the New Century Theology series


This book proposes a critical Resurrection theology appropriate to late (or post-modern) modernity.

There are signs that old paradigms are breaking down and new ones taking their place.

From a modernist preoccupation with historicity and a positivistic concentration with 'what actually happened' the focus has expanded to other ways of discerning the truth of the Resurrection.

This includes challenges to ways in which the Resurrection challenges and transforms widely-held constructions of reality and calls forth new ways of being in the world.

The Resurrection is something eschatological, corporeal and social: the stronger-than-death life of God at work in Jesus.

The book thus proposes a critical Resurrection theology appropriate to postmodernity.

The book is both highly original but also revolutionary.
