Am I "obsessed with the resurrection"?

I can think of a worse charge! May we all always be guilty of that. I have two more endorsements for you this week:“Adrian Warnock rightly highlights the common neglect of the resurrection and helpfully shows why this matters. Come and share the excitement of his own rediscovery of this central event of our faith.”—Tim Chester, The Crowded House and the Northern Training Institute“Adrian Warnock is brilliantly obsessed with the resurrection! He believes that Jesus Christ being raised from death i … [Read more...]

Don't Neglect The Resurrection

You will forgive me, I am sure, if I am somewhat preoccupied this week with the subject of the resurrection. In a way, every Christian should always be just as preoccupied as I am today with that subject. I loved what Henry Christoph Jr had to say on the Raised With Christ Facebook page:There is nothing more important than the Resurrection, Adrian, but the Christian church today just is not acting as though that were the case. I pray that the Lord will use your book to help turn that situation … [Read more...]

Raised With Christ – "Not Dull, Repetitive or With Nothing New To Say"

The first of the following two endorsements for my forthcoming book made me smile. Written as it was by Jonathan Carswell, a significant figure in the UK Christian publishing industry, who hence reads many books, I just wondered if he was having a bad day and was hence a little too honest! But, for him to say what he did was very kind. In addition, Sam is a good friend of mine who has written a short introductory book on the Resurrection which will also come out in 2010.“Books are often d … [Read more...]

Nancey Pearcey and David Stroud on Raised With Christ

Today, I thought I would share two more endorsements for my future book: "Adrian has provided us with a thorough, thoughtful and inspiring study of the resurrection. It left me better informed, more eager to live the life and more thankful to God for the basis of my faith: a risen Lord Jesus and an empty tomb!" David Stroud - UK Team Leader, Newfrontiers Author of Planting Churches, Changing CommunitiesRaised with Christ is wonderfully accessible to ordinary Christians because Adrian Warnock … [Read more...]

Raised With Christ – Two More Endorsements

I thought I would share comments from the UK's equivalent of InterVaristy Fellowship and from the pastor of one of Newfrontiers' largest churches and leader of the NewDay Conference. I have been sick with a flu bug most of the week, and this evening finally feel like I am on the mend, so in my silence, those of you who are following the story of my book may be interested to read the following--such comments genuinely surprise me, not least because it was never in my plans to write a book: … [Read more...]

God Of Compassion – What The Lazarus Story Shows Us

The following paragraph is one of the last things I have written to be inserted in my book Raised With Christ at this last major round of edits. It was inspired by a fantastic song on the fantastic new CCK album:One of the most emotive events in the whole Bible takes place when a friend of Jesus dies. The pain of Lazarus’ sister is tangible. In a sense everything the Bible has shown us about the problem of death climaxes at this moment. Suddenly we see the compassion of Jesus and the strength of … [Read more...]

First Glimpse Of Raised With Christ – How The Resurrection Changes Everything

Crossway have shared a brief extract of my forthcoming book over on their blog. Somehow it seems strange to see these words I have spent more than two years working on available for others to read. I guess I better get used to it! So, here it is, your first sight of what is coming:Jesus’ resurrection really did change everything. It changed the cross from a tragedy into a triumph, and it changed the Roman Empire into a Christian state. This was the most powerful divine event in the history of … [Read more...]
