Marxsen's book on the resurrection of Jesus is a cogent and highly
readable presentation of a post-Bultmannian understanding of the
resurrection of Jesus . . . He presents his views of the
resurrection in a way that earns the respects of scholars and yet is
understandable to the layperson.
This volume invites and demands serious
discussion. It evidences why the resurrection of Jesus
continues to be the crucial touchstone of New Testament theology.
Marxsen's book is interesting because in it one of
the most accomplished biblical scholars of our day discusses the
resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth with great honesty -- seeking to
avoid controversy, calling a hypothesis a hypothesis, admitting
ignorance where questions are beyond answer, and dodging no issue
that is relevant to the subject.
