This comprehensive study situates Jesus’ resurrection at the center of theological reflection and explores its implications for Christian imagination, discourse, and practice. Drawing upon broad array of theological and philosophical resources, it examines issues related to textual analysis, history, memory, embodiment, violence, forgiveness, aesthetics, and spirituality.
Brian D. Robinette is associate professor in the Department of Theological Studies at Saint Louis University.
"Offers us a genuinely rich and dense account of Christ's Resurrection and the way it opens out human understanding towards a re-imagination of Creation and of God's beauty. . . . [T]he clarity and sober excitement with which [Robinette] writes will surely attract readers into the vision he so compellingly spells out." James Alison, author, Faith Beyond Resentment
