The Resurrected Life  Apr 27, 2007
What a wonderful profound book for helping Cbhristians understand the Resurrection from the different accounts of the Bible. I loved this book, so full of heloing ujs to understand according to the different traditions ther joy of the Resurrection.
 
Rich, thoughtful introduction to Scripture on the Resurrection  Apr 18, 2007
For those who find Father Raymond Brown's major works just too much of a deep dive, try this 95 page collection of his reflections on what the Gospels say about the Resurrection of Christ. Father Brown could write serious studies for the scholar--his two volume 'Death of the Messiah' is masterly but tops 1600 pages, but he could write in a light, fresh manner (not too far from CS Lewis's style is some ways) that nonetheless gives deep insight into matters central to the Christian faith. Highly recommended.
 
A Helpful Guide For Preaching and Personal Study  Mar 29, 2005
A RISEN CHRIST AT EASTERTIME is a collection of essays by noted biblical scholar Fr. Raymond Brown. The book discusses the accounts of the resurrection in each of the four canonical gospels. One chapter is devoted to each of the gospels with the exception of two chapters which are devoted to John's Gospel which is not surprising considering Brown is a Johannine scholar. Brown basically looks at each of the gospels and how the individual evangelists use the resurrection accounts to stress the themes of their gospels and how a belief in the actual resurrection of Jesus Christ was essential to each of the early Christian communities that produced these works. Brown presents the scholarly material fort the reader and allows the reader to draw his/her own conclusions about the material he presents.

This book is a good summary of scholarship regarding the resurrection, but it is not intended for scholarly use. Its purpose is primarily pastoral as is the case with many of the books published by The Liturgical Press. In the introduction of A RISEN CHRIST AT EASTERTIME Brown asks readers the question "What stance would you have taken were you there when this happened?" I found that this question guides the reader to Brown's intent. It is not to give the reader a great deal of scholarly information which may or may not shed new insight on the resurrection. Rather Brown intends to give the reader enough information to rethink the resurrection and how this event plays a role in the life of faith. For this reason I would recommend the book to people involved ion ministry, particularly those involved in preaching, as well as people who are familiar with scripture and are looking for a guide that will help them understand the text
 
Sound Scholarship for a General Audience  Apr 19, 2001
This is part of a series of popular books from Liturgical Press written by the late Raymond Brown, one of the premier Roman Catholic biblical scholars of his generation.

In terms of his exegetical stance, Father Brown might be broadly classified as a moderate. He doesn't advocate the literal historicity of every detail in scripture, but he never denies, and in fact often defends, the underlying historicity of the essential events narrated. His theology is fully in keeping with Vatican II (not its "spirit" but its intent).

In A Risen Christ, Brown examines all the resurrection stories in the Gospels. Here he is not interested so much in comparing the various accounts. Rather his stated purpose is "to see how the treatment of the resurrection in an individual Gospel fits the theology and plan of that Gospel."

As in the other books of this series, Brown does an admirable job of presenting the fruits of voluminous scholarship in an easy-to-read, but not condescending, way for us amateur theologians.

It would be the rare Christian who would not gain some insight from this book. It may even inspire you to read Brown's longer, more academic works.
