In this book, the first full-scale study of the resurrection of Jesus in Luke - Acts, Anderson situates Luke's perspective on resurrection amongst Jewish and Hellenistic conceptions of the afterlife, and within the complex of Luke's theology, christology, ecclesiology and eschatology. He argues that the resurrection of Jesus constitutes the focus of the Lukan message of salvation.

Kevin L. Anderson is an Assistant Professor of Bible and Theology at Asbury College, Wilmore, KentuckyReview:
"This is a definitive treatment of the topic." I. Howard Marshall, Emeritus Professor of New Testament exegesis and honorary research professor at the University of Aberdeen.
"This truly interesting and perceptive book contends that the conceptual background in Luke-Acts of Jesus' resurrection and ours is Jewish and associates these topics with the final restoration of God's people and the full establishment of his kingdom. Jesus' resurrection is very correctly interpreted as prefiguring and guaranteeing our own." Robert O'Toole, SJ, Pontifical Biblical Institute, Rome, Italy
"In spite of the generally recognized centrality of the resurrection of Jesus to the theology of Luke-Acts, this is the first monograph devoted to the subject in the English-speaking world. In a stunning tour de force, Anderson locates Luke's presentation of the resurrection within the ancient Jewish and Roman worlds of thought and engages in careful exegesis of a range of relevant Lukan texts in order to interpret the significance of God's raising Jesus from the dead within Luke's message of salvation. The result is a welcome, impressive contribution both in our understanding of resurrection in Second Temple Judaism and the Greco-Roman World and to Lukan studies." Joel B. Green, Asbury Theological Seminary
"At last — the major study of Jesus's resurrection in Luke-Acts which we lacked! We are in Kevin Anderson's debt for this fine, thoughtful, well-argued, and lucid study." Steve Walton, London School of Theology
