New review for “Raised With Christ”

One of the marvellous things about writing a book is that sometimes you get to hear about people who have picked it up months or even years later. It is of course something new to them, and sometimes the book blesses and encourages them even as it once did yourself as you wrote it. So, I was really pleased to read this new review of my book, Raised With Christ:I consider myself Reformed. One of the things that means is that the cross is central to my understanding of the gospel. I … [Read more...]

What is a Christian?

Authentic-Christianity-1.013

I believe it is very important that we broaden our definition of Christian, but at the same time narrow our definition of Evangelical. Very often people confuse the two these days. The Evangelical movement has always been a movement within the wider Christian movement. Often it has been accused of believing that only other Evangelicals are really Christians. It is no wonder then, that some today do not like it when people suggest they are probably not an Evangelical. The latest in a long line of … [Read more...]

Listen to this new interview about Jesus' resurrection and why I wrote a book about it

I don't pay much attention to the sales figures for my book.  I do know two things about them though.  Firstly, the publisher told me they were happy with the sales, especially for a first time author without an "offline" platform.  Secondly, the total number of sales is much fewer than the number of readers of this blog.I am also aware that there are many new readers who might somehow have missed that I wrote a book that argues that at least since the Reformation we have shamefully neglected ta … [Read more...]

I don't just believe in God, I met with him this morning

We Christians today don't often talk about our spiritual experiences. There are all kinds of valid reasons for that.  However, as the following section of my book Raised With Christ shows, Packer and the Puritans disagree with us.  Now when Packer and the Puritans would seek to correct us, we should sit up and at least take note: It is remarkable how infrequently experiences such as those described below are mentioned, either during preaching or in modern Christian books. Unfortunately, many C … [Read more...]

Please buy, read and recommend a book about the resurrection before Easter

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 fr … [Read more...]

Where Bob Roberts' life message and mine intersect

In a sermon from the series  The Christian's Duty in a Hostile World, John MacArthur connects two glorious truths: the centrality of Jesus' resurrection and that "faith cannot be removed or detached from the realm of real life."It is no great surprise to me that I enjoyed Bob's book so much,  or that he seems to be enjoying mine.  For while their subjects may seem disconnected at first glance, in reality they have everything to do with each other!The truth that lies behind Bob's view of bo … [Read more...]

Praying for a generous dose of Spirit induced angst

Josh Kouri recently read Raised With Christ and the Spirit used it in his life in a very encouraging way.  I pray that others will experience similar effects by the work of the Spirit in their hearts: You will be given a generous dose of Spirit induced angst as you read. Jesus is alive. So much more is possible! I enjoy being a part of a church that is radical by most men’s standard, but this book left me on my face repenting for settling for less than what is possible. I want to experience the p … [Read more...]

4 Reasons to Read Raised With Christ

Josh Kouri  recently published a blog review which listed 4 reasons he felt people should read this book:Adrian is both a Spirit and Word guy . . .Gospel centered theology must include the resurrection along with the cross . . .This book will introduce giants. If you already read Edwards, Marten Lloyd-Jones, John Piper, Charles Spurgeon and Calvin you’ll love hearing them speak to the resurrection, but if you haven’t yet met these men, Warnock will do a beautiful job introducing the … [Read more...]

David McCullough reviews Raised With Christ

Raised with Christ comes with two opening pages of recommendation. And I am glad to say that it does live up to all the words of commendation. It is a well written 19 chapter book that seeks to explain that the resurrection changes everything. The opening chapters cover the details of the resurrection and the rest tease out this life transforming doctrine in to every day life . . .  All in all an excellently written and helpful study on the doctrine of the resurrection and a must … [Read more...]
