Funk on Parables by Robert W. Funk

Book Description

Robert Funk was the major seminal influence on parable scholarship in the second part of the twentieth century. His work on parable as metaphor led to the understanding of Jesus' parables as world-shattering. But it went beyond the question of metaphor: Funk redefined the form of the parable, made a substantial contribution to the argument that Jesus' parables originated in Greek, worked out a scale for evaluating parables as compositions, and proposed a model for how parables gave birth to resurrection faith. The essays in this volume, brought together for the first time, afford the reader a synoptic view of Funk's contribution?a contribution with which scholarship is only now beginning to deal.

Resurrection of Jesus by Robert W. Funk Resurrection of Jesus, Paperback (January 2009)

The event of Jesus' resurrection is like the event of creation: There were no eye-witnesses. So how does one make sense of the story of the resurrection - or rather stories, for not one but many reports survive from early Christianity? This work suggests that we must begin by erasing all Christian art about the resurrection from our memory.

When Faith Meets Reason by Robert W. Funk When Faith Meets Reason, Paperback (October 2008)

What happens to faith when the creeds and confessions can no longer be squared with historical and empirical evidence? This book features thirteen scholars who take up the challenge to speak candidly about how they negotiate the conflicting claims of faith and reason.
