The resurrection of Jesus is the cornerstone of the Christian faith. With the rise of modern science, however, many people began to doubt the claim that Jesus rose from the dead. In this fascinating book a team of distinguished scientists and theologians explores the belief in bodily resurrection in relation to the laws of nature.
The question pursued by the book is, How should we assess the resurrection both religiously and scientifically? In these chapters Christian theology engages in creative dialogue with the natural sciences -- physics, biology, neuroscience, and others. By examining such topics as the future of the cosmos, the workings of the human body, cybernetic immortality, and the credibility of miracles, the contributors search for a fresh approach to the intersection of religious and scientific knowledge.
