In writing my book The Resurrection: A Critical Examination of the Easter Story that I hope to be the sister publication to my title on the Nativity, I am obviously using a number of sources to pull together so many threads.
One of the most comprehensive resources I am dipping into (finally) is Michael J Alter’s magnum opus The Resurrection: A Critical Inquiry. It is 854 pages with a 55-page preamble to add to that!
It’s a beast! But in a very good way. Indeed, I was in contact with him this week and he has recently published with a Wipf and Stock imprint [Resource Publications, 2020] a lengthy, 602-page reference text. That text identified approximately 7,000 English sources, exclusively from books [not journals] on the Resurrection, divided into 12 categories and 34 subcategories! Th. work is meant to assist those on both sides of the religious aisle whom are interested in this topic.
I have just taken aim at Habermas on my section on the old “75% of New Testament scholars believe the empty tomb” claim.
Anyway, with 29,000 words written, I’ve been busy and apologise for the absence…
