Once and Future Faith
Once and Future Faith by Robert W. Funk
Book DescriptionScientific knowledge has stripped Christianity of the mythical matrix in which the creeds were conceived. The historical study of the Bible and the quest of the historical Jesus have raised the future of the faith to crisis level.At its Once & Future Faith conference in March 2001, four world class thinkers Don Cupitt, Karen Armstrong, John Shelby Spong, and Lloyd Geering joined Robert Funk and the Fellows of the Jesus Seminar to sort through the issues and attempt to form an agenda for the reinvention of Christianity. Their suggestions on questions such as life after death, the meaning of God, apocalypticism, and the significance of Jesus' death fill the pages of this book.

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.
