""Carlos Blanco's synthetic gifts as a teacher-scholar are in full display in this monograph: an elegant distillation of a lecture course that straddles Biblical scholarship and philosophy of religion to expound on the foundational tenet of early Christian theology with ease, intelligence, and aplomb.""
--Luis Giron-Negron, Harvard University
""Carlos Blanco asks difficult questions about life, death, and evil, questions he pursues with great facility and care across centuries and disciplinary boundaries. It is a great pleasure, reading this book, to think alongside him and ask indeed, Why Resurrection?""
--Charles M. Stang, Assistant Professor of Early Christian Thought
Harvard Divinity School
