Veteran scholar A. J. M. Wedderburn scrutinizes perhaps one of the most central tenets of the Christian faith--the resurrection of Jesus--and he does so through the cold hard lens of historical criticism. Recognizing that such a rigorous examination can be an "uncomfortable undertaking which constantly threatens to undermine cherished and established beliefs" (from the foreword) and risks controversy and sharp criticism, Wedderburn, nonetheless, strives to apply strenuously the methods of historical criticism to the question of Jesus' resurrection in an effort to determine whether the resurrection was "more probable," "less probable," or somewhere in the middle. Wedderburn eschews neat and tidy answers, insisting that "If in truth any talk of God or of ultimate reality must come up against a profound mystery, then does that not set a question-mark against the sort of theological studies where what God is and is not is declared with the greatest of precision?" (from the foreword).
