Reflections on Easter meaning
The contested message of Easter continues to challenge both the religious and the secular imagination.
This year, Church House Bookshop has brought together a number of titles (including, I'm grateful to acknowledge, Consuming Passion) which tackle the issues in a variety of ways (http://www.chbookshop.co.uk/feature.asp?id=2390703). Rowan Williams' book on Resurrection remains a favourite of mine, and although I lean toward Marcus Borg rather than N. T. Wright in their interesting debate about Jesus, Tom does set out what he takes to be the traditional case with great clarity -- see also, "Jesus’ Resurrection and Christian Origins", originally published in Gregorianum, 2002 (http://www.ntwrightpage.com/Wright_Jesus_Resurrection.htm#_ednref25).
I set out some of my own thoughts last year in "How Easter brings regime change" (http://www.ekklesia.co.uk/content/barrow/article_060414easter.shtml).
