Resurrection nonsense

Once more, with feeling. I thought the following (stylishly written, graciously empathetic) review in The Times (of London) made great sense.

Round and round we modern readers go, disputing the range of possible facts which could have given rise to the New Testament’s testimony to Easter and to the early churches. But perhaps we are not yet listening to the New Testament itself.

There are some assertions I would quibble with, but this much comes through loud and clear (and I hope you will agree with me): The writer worked hard to earn for these two sentences their place in the review’s concluding (conclusive?) last paragraph.
