    There seem to be so many inspirational-style books on the Resurrection with no real intellectual meat than one might wonder whether there are any books to help someone seriously grapple with whether this is something to believe in a modern age. Those who profess to believe in the Resurrection seem to derive so few practical consequences from that belief.

Those who profess to believe in the Resurrection seem to derive so few practical consequences from that belief. This book can be recommended as the work of a Roman Catholic theologian with solid academic credentials, whose research programme has mostly involved the Resurrection (he has several previous books) and who seems to be bursting with many additional research programs which he outlines for others to take up after him. He'd like to see how the resurrection impinges on sacramental and moral theology, for example. The book does not significantly overlap his earlier books. For the most part, it carries the conversation forward in honest fashion from a believer's perspective. But the opportunity for new discoveries is wearing thin and if you the reader see places where the case for belief is weak O'Collins really cannot make it stronger.

P. 22. Phillip Pullman, The Good Man Jesus and the Scoundrel Christ, 2010. One of the modern counter-theories to a doctrine of the Resurrection. “… book … eliminated the resurrection of Jesus as a case of deliberate deception: … Pullman invests Jesus with a twin called “Christ” who becomes more and more alienated from his brother and led astray by a mysterious, demonic “stranger.” Eventually Christ plays the part of Judas in being paid to lead a guard to Jesus and identify him with a kiss. In Pullman’s version, Christ does not then give way to remorse but agrees to do something worse by masquerading as his dead brother and deceiving people into thinking that Jesus has risen from the dead.” Right from New Testament times, skeptics have repeatedly accounted for the emptiness of Jesus’s tomb by alleging that his body had been removed by friend of foe (for example, Matt 28:11-15). …”
