I know and am very grateful that a number of you have bought my book already. But many have not. And some of you who have bought it have not read it yet, of that I am sure because I know how many unread books I have on my shelves that I got with good intentions! So this month I want to challenge you to buy a copy of a book about the resurrection if you have not already, read it, and then recommend it to your friends or better yet review it on Amazon or your own blog. Never assume that your friends have heard of a book that you read and like. They may well not have. Word of mouth is the best way for people to hear about helpful books. If you, or someone you know, prefers audio books (if you have a long car commute they are ideal) there is an mp3 version available.
There are of course other books out there on the resurrection, and if you like the look of one of them better, I will not be offended if you read it instead! A good shorter one is Lifted by Sam Alberry and a good (much!) longer one is N.T. Wright’s The Resurrection of the Son of God. Every Christian should read a book about the resurrection at least once in their lives. Why not determine to do it before this Easter. If you are going to be reading it through, why not let me know and post any questions in a comment here or @ me on Twitter and between now and Easter I will do my best to answer any questions you may have.Two parts of a study guide which includes video are available: 1- Do We Neglect The Resurrection? and 2 – How can we know Jesus really rose again?
I have also filmed a third episode but not written questions yet. If anyone has ideas for good study guide questions do let me know, I intend to try and complete this as soon as I can given other commitments.
And if you are free just after Easter, I think there is still room at a whole conference on the resurrection called Bible On The Beach where I will be a speaker.
