About-

'Crucifixion-Resurrection' is the posthumous work of one of the great theological partnerships - Sir Edwyn Hoskyns, the pioneer of biblical theology in England, and Noel Davey, his student, in whom he found the ideal literary collaborator. It was conceived as the theological sequel to their first joint work, 'The Riddle of the New Testament', whose influence on generations of students has been incalculable. 'Crucifixion-Resurrection' is concerned with the theology and ethics of the New Testament. It offers a detailed exposition of the various New Testament interpretations of Christ's death, penetrating to the heart of the message Christianity has to offer the world, and plumbing spiritual depths which the Church rarely sounds today. Present New Testament scholarship may have a more extensive technical equipment, but does not necessarily come to better theological conclusions; indeed the authentic Christian humanism of Hoskyns and Davey may speak to our time even more forcibly than to their own.

'Crucifixion-Resurrection' has been edited by Gordon S. Wakefield, who completed the manuscript with the help of lectures left by Noel Davey. Wakefield has also provided a substantial biographical account of the two authors.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"Readers will find that both the man and the work speak to these times. Hoskyns had a remarkable influence.... I learned from him, more vividly than from anyone else, that the study of the New Testament is an exciting adventure."

From the foreword by Michael Ramsey, former Archbishop of Canterbury
