Raised with Christ: How the Resurrection Changes Everything

This is one of those books that addresses something that is blindingly obvious in the Bible, but which has been persistently overlooked in the church.

God’s last word

When Paul brought the gospel to Athens, he 'preached to them Jesus and the resurrection' (Acts 17:18).

This seems doubtful. It…
