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...]

Justin Taylor interviews Adrian Warnock

Review by Terry Delaney

Adrian begins with the importance of the death and the resurrection of Christ and the glorious promise that Christ will come again. It gives me chills just typing that!He then moves into a semi-apologetic approach to the resurrection of Jesus Christ by looking at what Scripture says as well as some historical external evidence of the reality of the resurrection. From here, we read chapter after chapter exhorting the regenerated person in Christ to live in the reality of the resurrection. Nancy … [Read more...]

Prodigal Theologian reviews “Raised With Christ”

How the resurrection changes everything is both the subtitle of this book and the theme flowing throughout it.  Mr. Warnock tells how preaching on Easter Sunday opened his eyes to the resurrection being ignored in much of Christianity.  So he explains its importance, its uniqueness and its rightful place in our faith and theology.  In doing so he continually reminds us that there does not need to be a difference between the cross and the resurrection.  Rather, he points out, the early church lea … [Read more...]

“One of My Top 5 Essential Works of Theology of the Past 25 Years” Kylie McDaniel

Few are writing on the theological aspect of the resurrection.  There are plenty of books on the cross and its significance, but few are written on the resurrection and what it has to do with our salvation.  Warnock offers one of the best books Ive read on the subject.  The resurrection is salvific and practical.  The author walks the reader through how the resurrection benefits us and also gives the standard development of proof of the resurrection and so forth.  As a Reformed Christian/pastor I … [Read more...]

Debating the resurrection with a liberal pastor

During my blogging break I appeared on Premier Christian Radio's Unbelievable?. I joined in a conversation with a church leader about whether the physical resurrection of Jesus really matters. It was refreshing to meet someone who did not believe in Jesus bodily resurrection , who unlike many neoliberals today, was at least willing to call himself a liberal. I encourage you to  Listen here and look at some of the other programs. … [Read more...]
