Jesus' resurrection is at the core of Christian preaching because the structure of faith must be erected on this foundational fact. Without the resurrection, the Apostle Paul argued, we would be foolish to hope for reconciliation with God or for our own resurrection. Is the testimony of the first witnesses still valuable for us today? In "Resurrection Faith" Daniel Fuller offers a unique and profoundly affirmative answer. Writing as both historian and biblical scholar, Fuller demonstrates that in Acts Luke makes a compelling case for the verifiability of Jesus' resurrection. His work especially helps readers understand and appreciate how Luke connects the fact and meaning of Jesus' resurrection with the extension of the Gospel to the nations. Paul's and Barnabas' changed lives, exemplified in their missionary work, are the best evidence for the historicity of the resurrection, evidence which justifies crediting the resurrection and committing ourselves to the resurrected Jesus.
