  • One of the signs of a good book is the way it leaves you wanting rather than wishing you had not wasted time on it This is the sort of book where one would want , a lot , than one gets The work of a symposium that seeks to bridge the divide between theologians and scholars of biblical history, this is a book written for a wide and generally educated lay audience but a book that boldly enters into scholarly disputes and makes some intense criticisms of the approach of many scholars, some of whom [...]



  • This was a good book to read with a study group through Lent It s a short one, but filled with very helpful guidance as to why Jesus died and why his death was and is important We studied this book in pursuit guidance for the questions Why did Jesus die and Why did Jesus have to die Note the nuance between dying and the necessity of his death I feel this little book helped us explore the answers to that question And, it sums up like this Jesus, the crucified one, is also the resurrected one In c [...]


  • At little over 100 pages this is a relatively slim volume, but contains a lot of scholarship within its few pages It s essentially 3 lectures looking at the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus, with Craig Evans covering the first 2 and Tom Wright dealing with the third does anyone else write about the resurrection from an evangelical perspective these days, and indeed, does Tom Wright write about anything else without bringing the implications of the resurrection into it Whilst the scholarsh [...]


  • A very good look of the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus as told in the four Gospels and evaluated through a historical lens The book is really a collection of three presentations given by the authors at the Symposium for Church and Academy lecture series of Crichton College, so the style of writing is a little different than what readers may be used to in terms of academic books But the authors have researched their topics well and put forth convincing arguments Although the subtitle may [...]


  • I really enjoyed aspects of this book The history behind death, crucifixion and burial was of great interest Wright s sections on resurrection, while mainly a recap from his massively work on the topic, was a great little condensed view of the thorough book, and fit well in the confines of this overall topic Offering much insight for those modern day church goers who have not looked just a little deeply than the Sunday school lessons, this is a very good, short eye opening view at what lies be [...]


  • This book is a great read for Holy Week Only 128 pages in three chapters, New Testament scholars, Craig Evans and N.T Wright look at the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus from a historical perspective Lots of helpful background information dealing with the Roman practice of crucifixion and 1st century Jewish burial custom Wright s chapter on the resurrection is superb, focusing on how the Christian understanding of resurrection, based on Jesus own, is an unexpected and otherwise inexplicab [...]


  • The editor combines the writings of Biblical scholars Craig Evans and N.T Wright in this book that searches the scriptures to answer the question, what really happened Though often heavy reading for me, but it was a good book for the Lenten season I learned things from the scripture that I had never recognized before e line of thought within the Gospels themselves is, Jesus is raised, therefore God s new world has begun, and therefore we, you, and everybody else are invited to be not only benefi [...]


  • Three good essays, two by Evans on the death and burial of Jesus and a third by Wright on his resurrection Wright s essay covers his usual bases and if you ve read The Resurrection of the Son of God or Surprised by Hope there s nothing new here Evans essays on Jesus death and burial are very helpful and bring to light a lot of background evidence from ancient sources and archaeology that give greater insight into the Gospel accounts.


  • A short and accessible book by two of the best historical Jesus scholars out there It works, in some ways, as a counter balance to the popular work by Borg and Crossan on the final days of Jesus life The scholarship is rigorous but the information presented in a way that would be helpful to any reader.


  • Beautiful discussion of some of the problems and stumbling blocks which have gotten in the way of many peoples understanding of the death and resurrection of Jesus If, for intellectual reasons, you have a hard time accepting the gospel accounts of Jesus final days and resurrection, you should read this book, by two of the finest New Testament scholars of our time I highly recommend it.


  • Wonderfully short book for the interested layman which details the historical evidence for the passion and resurrection of Jesus Passages from biblical, second temple, and other late antiquity sources abound Great book for anyone wanting a brief but substance discussion on the historicity of the core of the New Testament.


  • A rather scientific approach of the resurrection, which is quite nice in the world of christian books about relationship with God , Jesus loves you and other things that are hard to grasp for someone who is in searh of the truth I recommended it several times to people, and I probably will read it again around Easter.


  • A scholarly look at the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus It most likely is a bit too much for the average lay person, but is a great book to spark their interest.


  • Heavy book Quite interesting to read.Theology with a lot of cultural background evidences.No wonder since the writers are well known proffesours in Theology.


  • Good info in the book, but Evans essays are much stronger as Wright s essay turns into an ad for his other books.


  • Not a smooth read, it was like a class to give you proof of what happened in the last days of Jesus In that light it did very well.


  • A good basic introduction to the subject Wright s chapter on the resurrection is a brief version of the arguments he presents at great length elsewhere.


  • Great, short read emphasizing the critical historical nature of the events surrounding the last few days and the death and resurrection of Jesus.
