Lifted: Experiencing the Resurrection LifeISBN: 9781596384316
For many people the resurrection is a nice thing to believe in; a handy subject to return to at Easter time or when discussing apologetics. Otherwise we treat it as an event that happened long ago and far away-a "happy ending" to the gospel, after the darkness of the cross.
But Sam Allberry shows us that the resurrection is far more than a mere event. It isn't just for Easter; it has overwhelmingly positive implications for our lives every day.
The resurrection gives us real assurance of forgiveness and salvation, power to live new and transformed lives, and hope for life after death. Our lives are now different; we have been lifted. Read and be transformed by the real significance of the resurrection.
Sam Allberry studied at Wycliffe Hall in Oxford and has worked with Overseas Missionary Fellowship and at St. Ebbe's in Oxford, England. He is currently associate minister of St. Mary's Church, Maidenhead, UK.
