9780718892524: Why Resurrection?: An Introduction to the Belief in the Afterlife in Judaism and Christianity

Few questions exert such a great fascination on human conscience as those related to the meaning of life, history, and death. The belief in the resurrection of the dead constitutes an answer to a real challenge: What is the meaning of life and history in the midst of a world in which evil, injustice, and ultimately death exist? Resurrection is an instrument serving a broader, more encompassing reality: the Kingdom of God. Such a utopian Kingdom gathers the final response to the problem of theodicy and to the enigma of history. This book seeks to understand the idea of resurrection not only as a theological but also as a philosophical category (as expression of the collective aspirations of humanity), combining historical, theological, and philosophical analyses in dialogue with some of the principal streams of contemporary Western thought.

About the Author:

Carlos Blanco is the author of 'El Pensamiento de la Apocalíptica Judía', 'Why Resurrection?' (Pickwick Publications), and 'Mentes Maravillosas que Cambiaron la Humanidad'. He has been a Visiting Fellow at the Committee on the Study of Religion at Harvard University, and he is currently a researcher and professor at Instituto de Cultura y Sociedad (Spain).

Review:

‘The book is dotted with interesting digressions; continuous references to the subject of the resurrection in Judaism (Pp. 143 to 175) and Christianity, as well as interesting reflections on the concept of resurrection in atheism and agnosticism... [and] other issues such as suffering, pain and limitations, as well as that of omnipotence. [...] I hope this work of extraordinarily evocative and interesting solid intellectual maturity and exposure is not the end of his research career, but a footnote on page promising production expected of Carlos Blanco.’ (by Rafael Ramis Barceló Anuario filosófico, 45/3, 2012)

‘Blanco discusses interpretations of history offered by Heidegger, Bloch, Hegel, and Pannenberg. [...] ... examines the apocalyptic conception of history, evil, and eschatology [...] examines how death is viewed within different worldviews [...] In the final chapter, Blanco attempts to answer what post-resurrection existence is like by discussing the kingdom of God.’ (Michael R. Licona The Expository Times, volume 124, number 4, January 2013)
