Jesus remains a popular figure in contemporary cultureand Allison remains one of our best interpreters. He speaks around the country in avariety of venues on matters related to the study of the Historical Jesus. In his new book,he focuses on the historical Jesus and eschatology, concluding that the Jesus was not aHellenistic wonder worker or teacher of pious morality but an apocalyptic prophet. In anopening chapter that is worth the price of admission, Allison astutely and engaginglycaptures the history of the search for the historical Jesus. He observes that manycontemporary readings of Jesus shift the focus away from traditional theological,Christological, and eschatological concerns. In provocative fashion, He takes on not onlythe Jesus Seminar but also other Jesus interpreters such as N.T. Wright and Marcus Borg.

About the Author:

Dale C. Allison Jr. is Errett M. Grable Professor of New Testament Exegesis and Early Christianity, Pittsburgh Theological Seminary, and is the author of The Intertextual Jesus and, with the late W.D. Davies, the ICC volumes on Matthew.

Review:

"Dale Allison is one the very best Jesus scholars of our time. The six essays in this volume show him to be the master of the pertinentGospel and early Jewish texts, modern biblcail scholarship, and everythingfrom patristics to modern psychology and theology. Moreover, they sparklewith his intellectual independence, fresh insights, and good judgment."—Daniel J. Harrington, S.J., Weston Jesuit School of Theology,Cambridge,MA

"Dale Allison is one of the very few scholars today to whom each us mustlisten. Some think Jesus was bodily raised, some think resurrection isthe explanation of encounters with Jesus after his death, and others think it is all balderdash. Resurrecting Jesus is one book that honest people must read. Belief in the resurrection, as Allison argues, is less a product of eschatological dissonance and more likely the cause of that dissonance, and resurrection language among Jews (as others have argued) transcends belief in the afterlife. This debate is not likely to die out soon and it will surely take place with Resurrecting Jesus in hand."Scot McKnight, Ph.D.Karl A. Olsson Professor in Religious StudiesNorth Park University

This self-presentation culminates with the discussion of the resurrection in an intimately personal spiritual soliloquy that could well serve both budding and senior scholars by reminding them that beyond finding historical-critical answers, their task inevitably includes finding themselves at each stage of their intellectual journey. Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-level undergraduates and above. —

(J.C. Hanges, Miami University CHOICE)

"This substantial work is composed of six 'essays' or studies on a variety of topics... Allison is a thoughtful, erudite, and courageous scholar and it is both a pleasure and a challenge to work though the evidence with him. His interest in the question of Jesus' resurrection (which he vigorously affirms) is not simply academic; throughout his scholarly discussion he makes links to contemporary experience of death and hope."- The Bible Today, January/ Febrary 2006

(The Bible Today)

"...remains a helpful generalization for introducing students to twentieth-century NT study... This is a well-written and enterprising volume... this is a book that warrants attention and is a worthy companion to N.T. Wright's Resurrection of the Son of God."- Michael F. Bird, June 2006/ Vol. 49 no.2 (Journal Of Evangelical Theological Society)

"Allison extends his earlier Jesus of Nazareth: Millenarian Prophet with a series of essays displaying a distinctive combination of erudition, common sense and gentle wit."- The Christian Century, October 17, 2006
