With Easter upon us this weekend, here is our theology reading list of books that have been helpful for us in understanding the resurrection of Jesus for the life of the church…
Why is it ‘good news’ to say that ‘Jesus is risen’? What has the resurrection to do with our idea of salvation? This book sets out to show how the experience of the resurrection was from the first one of forgiveness and of the healing of memories of injury, guilt or failure. Out of this healing grow new patterns of life together, and a new understanding of God. This classic work by one of the finest theological minds of our day is renowned for its synthesis of theology and spirituality, critical analysis and devotion.
