This book created a storm of controversy in Europe as soon as it was published. Were the resurrection appearances real physical events–or nothing more than grief-induced hallucinations? What does it mean to say, Jesus rose from the dead? Dissatisfied with what he regarded as evasive answers given by theologians and scholars about the nature of the resurrection of Jesus, Gerd L’demann analyzes the story of the empty tomb and the subsequent appearance stories first related by Peter. A great starting book for beginners.
