The book takes off in the second half where Adrian begins to lay out the implications of the resurrection for Christian life: how the resurrection changes everything. He rates his chapter on prayer as the one that we’ll skip but which he considers most important. It’s a great call to pray to the risen Christ which is lively and inspiring. For me the most significant contribution of this book is to be found in chapters 15-16. In view of the resurrection we’re shown a solid basis for an experiential Christianity, of relationship with a risen Lord, and for me this is the key contribution that this book will make to the church. Reading it was personally challenging and convicting, driving me more to Jesus.
