From the cover: “In this book Canon Ramsey examines the place of the Resurrection in the Gospel preached by the Apostles and in the Theology of the New Testament as a whole, and shows that the Resurrection is the key to the Biblical doctrine of the living God. The relation between the Cross and the Resurrection in the Christian life and the meaning of the Resurrection of the Body in the Christian hope are specially discussed.
While the main emphasis of the book is theological, the historical problems are not neglected. The author discusses the Gospel narratives with reference to the most recent methods of critical study and asks what primitive traditions of the Resurrection-message lie behind the narratives. He considers both the evidence for the empty tomb and its significance for Christian belief.
The concluding chapter deals with the relation between the Resurrection and some contemporary movements in theological thought, and brings out the importance to-day of Westcott’s teaching upon the meaning of the Resurrection for human history..”
