It has been a few years since I have released a new book. I am so excited to announce the release of Reflections on the Resurrection. The resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead is the event that history hangs on. For Christians, especially, the resurrection is important because it is the event that gives our faith its meaning.
Here is a short excerpt from the book: “To really examine Easter forces us to examine the very foundation of what Christianity is. Was Jesus just a misunderstood Jewish rabbi that ran afoul of the Romans? Make no mistake, messiahs were a dime a dozen in First Century Palestine. Jesus was not the first messiah that the Romans had put to death and He was certainly not the last. The interesting thing about these other dead messiahs is that no one can remember who they were. When they were executed, their followers just faded away.
The Resurrection, however, changed everything. Instead of Jesus’ followers quietly fading away and going back to their former occupations, they began boldly proclaiming, “He is alive!” Men, who just weeks before had been in hiding out of the fear of being arrested as one of Jesus’ followers, now began to stand up in public and preach the message of the risen Jesus. They began to preach, not just Jesus’ teachings, but they began to preach the resurrection.”
