Overview

"In this book Ian Wallis offers a new way of looking at Holy Saturday and its meaning for us, theologically, practically and liturgically. The period after the crucifixion and before belief in the Resurrection is of central importance, he suggests, in understanding the Christian Movement." "Drawing on contemporary studies into bereavement, the author suggests that the grief of Jesus' followers was shaped by their Jewish heritage, and by their apprenticeship under Jesus." "There is much in this study which throws light not only on the beginnings of Christian faith, but also on the contemporary challenge of maintaining Jesus' accessibility and significance for the pursuit of an authentic humanity."--BOOK JACKET.
