In this stimulating work, John Wong provides a provocative study of the resurrected body, both in Christ and in his followers. Grounded in Christian scriptures and drawing from philosophy as well as current scientific knowledge, The Resurrected Body challenges readers to examine the prospects of an afterlife with multifaceted dimensions. Wong argues that our existential longing for perfection, our search for happiness and ultimate fulfillment as well as our eternal quest for the good and the right point to a new body capable of twin-mode expressions. This resurrected body will have a physical dimension that can operate in the spatial and temporal realm of heaven and a transphysical expression that can escape human limitations and exist in everlasting glory and splendor. Wong bases this concept of the afterlife on exegetical studies of Christ's resurrection, which he sees as the prototype for the believer's new body with the only difference being the mode that takes precedence in expression. Offered as a corrective for the denial of the bodily resurrection of Christ and its implications for all believers, this work is sure to invigorate religious scholars as well as those seeking answers to spiritual questions that are at the core of Christianity.
