This is the first Patristic book to focus on the development of the belief in the Resurrection of Christ through the first centuries A.D. By Paul, Christ’s Resurrection is regarded as the basis of Christian hope. In the fourth century it becomes a central Christian tenet. But what about the discrepancy in the first three centuries? Vinzent offers an eye-opening experience with insights into the craftsmanship of early Christianity – the earliest existential debates about life and death, death and life – all centred on the cross, on suffering, enduring and sacrifice.
