Risen Christ in Eastertime
Essays on the Gospel Narratives of the Resurrection.
In his other books for Advent, Christmas, and Lent, Fr Brown has made the rich insights of modern biblical exegesis conveniently available for reflection during the great feasts of the liturgical year. Here he does the same for the Easter season by commenting on the Gospel stories of the risen Christ.
Rather than focusing on the differences between the evangelists' accounts of the resurrection, Fr Brown instead concentrates on how each treatment of the resurrection fits the theology and plan of its Gospel.
