About the Author:

Claudia Setzer, Ph.D. (1990) in Religion, Columbia University, is Professor of Religious Studies at Manhattan College, Riverdale, New York. She is the author ofJewish Responses to Early Christians (Fortress, 1994) and writes on early Jewish/Christian relations and women in early Judaism and Christianity.

Review:

"'Setzer offers a distinctively new angle on an old subject. Employing insights from the social sciences and rhetoric, she argues that resurrection beliefs served various social functions for community formation and maintenance. She works facilely with Jewish and Christian texts that span a broad range of time but always avoids generalizing or overstating the case. She engages both classic and contemporary scholarship in a vital but concise manner. Truly an innovative and important contribution.'" -Jaime Clark-Soles, Assistant Professor of New Testament, Perkins School of Theology.

Book Description Brill, United States, 2004. Hardback. Book Condition: New. New.. Language: English . This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. How did the belief in resurrection become part of the symbolic construction of early Jewish and Christian communities? Why was it a marker for who did or did not belong in certain groups? Using insights from the social sciences and rhetorical studies, the author discusses the development of belief in resurrection in early Jewish circles and the growth of a resurrection apologetic in early Christianity. Examining materials on the Pharisees, Jewish liturgy, and the earliest rabbinic statements, as well as the theology of resurrection in Paul, Justin, Athenagoras, Irenaeus, and Tertullian, this study demonstrates the stability of certain tenets that coalesce around the concept of resurrection, and its utility as a shorthand for a community s theology and self-understanding.
