Faith in the resurrection of Jesus Christ is absolutely central to the Christian religion. Peter Carnley deals critically with the attempts of the world's leading theologians over the past hundred years to handle the resurrection of Christ conceptually. In the second half of the book a religiously positive and constructive attempt is made to articulate a logically coherent epistemology of faith in the resurrection, which respects the authority of the scriptural traditions as they are now understood and assessed by contemporary theologians, whilst at the same time being true to the transcendental dimensions of the resurrection as a divine mystery, and to contemporary Christian experience of the Easter Christ.
`A magisterial new work on Christian faith in the risen Christ is something to celebrate ... it will surely remain the best book on the most important subject for many years to yet'
