Shepherd carefully studies the literary, historical, theological, anthropological, and sociological dimensions that color each writers unique view of the resurrection, and examines how these passages may be read in various interpretive communities. Each section also includes sample sermons that illustrate how a preacher might treat these texts for an actual congregation. This is an excellent resource for pastors, and an informative, easy-to-read manual for anyone who wants a deeper understanding of the New Testament.
