“Simple without being simplistic”

I have to say, first of all, that it was a genuine pleasure to read. Simple without being simplistic, it follows a line of thought through the importance of the resurrection, the truth of the resurrection, the effect it has on us, the need for revival in our churches and in prayer, and finally the second coming- the resurrection of our bodies at the end of all things.Read more at Purposeful Purity: Raised With Christ. … [Read more...]

“Get it, read it, digest it, preach it” Mark Lauterbach

To say the least, Adrian has brought a major contribution to the Gospel-centered community by underscoring the meaning of the resurrection. That we preach Christ crucified is well known. That "Christ crucified" means crucified and risen is not so clear. I find myself often drawn to the atonement as the core of the Gospel, and it is. But atonement without resurrection is no atonement. And resurrection is not a background noise in the New Testament. . .The book is easy to follow, well … [Read more...]

“Warnock seeks to rivet the reader’s attention on the resurrection of Jesus Christ”

In this his first book Warnock seeks to rivet the reader's attention on the resurrection of Jesus Christ. The cross of Christ and his death has been the traditional emphasis of the western church, both in positive remembrance, and over the last few years, deeply-felt theological wrangles over its meaning to which Warnock has been no stranger. In this book though he seeks to move our attention onto the positive Christian declaration that Christ who died, rose again and now reigns. He demonstrates … [Read more...]

The following comes from a review of Raised With Christ on Operation Actually Read Bible: I loved, loved, loved this book. For me, it was an amazing read. It reminded me of why I read Christian nonfiction in the first place.I feel I learned so much--so very, very much--by reading this one. I can honestly say this one made me think. In a good way. It made me pray.The way Adrian Warnock presented his message, well, it worked for me. The way he incorporated the Bible, how he relied on Scripture, … [Read more...]

Toronto Anglicans cite Christianity Today interview

It still amazes me that, thanks to modern technology, words can fly around the globe into different continents, but also very different church streams.  The resurrection of Jesus is the one thing that can unite all true Christians.  We all believe in it, and no matter how much we might neglect it, at heart we know it is vital. So it was great to see this paragraph from my recent interview quoted by brothers so far away: There is no historical doubt whatsoever that a man called Jesus lived and w … [Read more...]

Support your Christian bookshop this weekend

I still dare to believe in Christian bookshops. Oh, they need to evolve all right. It seems like the new "Living Oasis" chain might have some of the right ideas in some places. Making the bookshop also serve as a coffee shop and meeting point seems like a great idea. Getting people into the shop is the challenge. Once there, if the bookshop is well laid out and with helpful staff, the customer may well be encouraged to buy more materials. Why not make the effort and go visit your local store … [Read more...]

How to Sell 100 Books in 10 Minutes

Raised With Christ was launched at Jubilee Church this past Sunday. The people were incredibly gracious in their response, and much to my surprise we sold all 100 available copies in just 10 minutes. I am sure some of that was due to the love of this wonderful family of God for me as one of its members.  But Tope's endorsement of the book was really very nicely done. If you are a pastor with a specific book to promote, you would do well to follow this example.In the video my lovely wife … [Read more...]
