Reviews - What do customers think about Life in the Face of Death: The Resurrection Message of the New Testament (Mcmaster New Testament Studies)?
A good biblical treatment Dec 7, 1999
If you thought scholarly discussions could not be edifying, this book proves you wrong. In keeping with the stated purpose of this series, this book attempts to bridge the gap between academic study and the life of the church. It does an admirable job of both. There is a wealth of information and discussion, but there is an impressive pastoral bent to many of the chapters.
To cite one example, the chapter, I am the Resurrection and the Life; The Resurrection Message of the Fourth Gospel, is a very well-done narrative critical picture of the Gospel of John and word study of resurrection vocabulary. It is a masterful example of wedding word studies and narrative theology into an engaging whole. While this (and other chapters) is not pre-packaged sermons or Bible classes they would serve as very helpful study material for such purposes.
Other chapters worthy of mention are the one on Acts by Joel Green and the one on the resurrection and the Christian life by G. Walter Hansen.
