This work covers ancient beliefs about life after death from Homer's Hades to ancient Jewish beliefs, from the Bible to the Dead Sea Scrolls and beyond. It examines early Christian beliefs about resurrection in general and that of Jesus in particular, beginning with Paul and working through to the start of the third century. It explores the Easter stories of the Gospels and seeks the best historical conclusions about the empty tomb and the belief that Jesus did rise bodily from the dead.

Press Reviews

The most monumental defence of the Easter heritage in decades . . . The Resurrection of the Son of God marches through a clearly organized case that confronts every major doubt about Easter, ancient and modern.

- Associated Press

Wright has succeeded in building a theological cathedral of illuminated historical insights, convincing and surprising exegetical observations, and thoroughly argued systematic conclusions. No prophetic intuition is needed to predict thatthis book will remain a classic.

- Scottish Journal of Theology

A monumental achievement in its scope, depth and execution.

- The Tablet

book really is a bomb thrown into the playground of the theologians. Not only that, it is perhaps even more unusual in being both a joy to read and nearly 850 pages in length . . . It is not only an excellent argument, it is a model for how scholarship should be done.

- Themelios

Displays on every page an enviable competence and lucidity in handling all the evidence.
