Description

As Dr. Wenham states early in his introduction, "The story of Jesus' resurrection is told by five different writers, whose accounts differ from each other to an astonishing degree." Wenham begins by setting the scene of Jerusalem and its environs, going on to describe the main actors in the events with particular attention to Mary Magdalene and the five writers themselves, and then examining in detail all the biblical narratives from Good Friday through Easter Day to the Ascension. He concludes that the various accounts as they stand can be satisfactorily reconciled to provide a trustworthy record for the church. Valuable appendices elucidate Wenham's response to the technicalities of gospel criticism.

[Publisher]


This book is a study of discernment in the life and thought of the fourth and fifthcentury Egyptian desert fathers. Rich argues that for them discernment was a critical faculty and charism central to the spiritual and practical life of these early monks and nuns in their mystical search for God for purity of life and knowledge of him.
