UPDATE – Thanks for all your feedback emails and messages. I think I am down to five, the first for with the same subtitle. The last one could be a title on its own or could replace “Living in Light of the Resurrection” with one of the others.
1. Raised with Christ – Living in Light of the Resurrection
2. Raised For Our Justification – Living in Light of the Resurrection
3. Raised For Our Salvation – Living in Light of the Resurrection
4. Raised To Save Us – Living in Light of the Resurrection
5. How the resurrection changes everything

You my blog readers are now becoming my instant focus group. Having been sure for ages that “Resurrection Empowered Life” was the right title for my future book, I am now having significant doubts. So, basically, I want to give you a chance to pop over to my facebook group, my twitter page or just email me your own suggetions or comments on the list at the end of this post. Some of the following I don’t even like myself, so don’t feel bad at saying you don’t like them.
The book is basically about the idea that we have neglected the resurrection somewhat, and so we need to look again at the evidence for it, and its implications for us today in doctrine and experience. Here is a wordle of the latest draft which I am still working on. It shows the 100 most frequently used words in the book (minus certain common words) and so gives a good idea of what themes I am addressing. Click on it to zoom in.
