Space, Time and Resurrection

Space, Time and Resurrection

Space, Time and Resurrection

Thomas F Torrance

$45.00

Paperback

The sequel to Space, Time and Incarnation. Professor Torrance attempts to set out the biblical approach to the Resurrection in terms of the intrinsic significance of the resurrected one, Jesus; and demonstrates that the Resurrection is entirely consistent with who Jesus was and what he did. The Resurrection is thus taken realistically, and treated as of the same nature, in the integration of physical and spiritual existence, as the death of Christ. All this is elucidated in the context of modern scientific thought, in such a way as to show that far from being frightened by modern science into a compromise of the NT message of the Resurrection of Jesus Christ in body, it actually allows us to take its full measure.

In an earlier work, Space, Time and Incarnation, Torrance argued that the Incarnation is meaningless for us unless its relation with the actual structures of space and time can be clarified adequately. This he did with special emphasis upon space. This book is in part a sequel, dealing with the Resurrection in relation to space and in particular, time. Torrance attempts to set out the biblical approach to the Resurrection, in terms of the intrinsic significance of the resurrected one, Jesus; and demonstrates that the Resurrection is entirely consistent with who Jesus was and what he did. The Resurrection is thus taken realistically, and treated as of the same nature, In the integration of physical and spiritual existence, as the death of Christ. But all this is elucidated in the context of modern scientific thought and questioning in such a way as to show that, far from being frightened by modern science into a compromise of the New Testament message of the Resurrection of Jesus Christ in body, it actually allows us to take its full measure.
