For many the resurrection is a nice thing to believe, the ‘happy’ ending to the gospel, as though after the darkness of the cross Spielberg was brought in to do the finish.
But Lifted shows that it’s far more. The resurrection has overwhelmingly positive implications for our daily lives. Through it we can have real assurance of forgiveness and salvation. We are raised and empowered to live new, transformed lives. We have hope after death for our bodies and this physical world. We see the urgency of reaching all nations with the message of the risen Jesus. Life is now different: we have been lifted.
The resurrection of Jesus Christ is not just for Easter. It’s for all of life.
“Sam Allberry has written a wonderful book on the significance of the resurrection. Full of great images, clearly organized, encouraging, humourous, Biblical, insightful––I could go on. Reading this little volume on this central but neglected topic will benefit your life. If you would like more assurance, transformation, hope & purpose, this book shows you how we get all that from the resurrection of Christ.” Mark Dever
