Jim West’s Review of Michael Licona’s ‘The Resurrection of Jesus’

Jim West has posted up the first part of a series in which he reviews Mike Licona’s book The Resurrection of Jesus: A New Historigraphical Approach (IVP Academic, 2010).  Below is an excerpt:

Methodologically, Licona has all his ‘ducks in a row’. He clearly knows the issues. He also clearly knows the perils of historical research. Absolute certainty is not something historians can assert. Probability is what they strive for and the best they can hope for.

But Licona is clearly far more dependent on the methodological approach of N.T. Wright than he is on the methodological approach of R.K. Bultmann. And that may be the Achilles heel of his presentation.
