Alister McGrath is Professor of Historical Theology at Oxford University, Director of the Oxford Centre for Evangelism and Apologetics, and consulting editor for Christianity Today.
Dramatically illuminated by a series of fine art paintings, Alister McGrath's new volume seeks to engage both the mind and the imagination as he explores the great and extraordinary affirmation: "Christ is risen " Poetry, prayer, and theological reflection are interwoven with commentary on the ideas conveyed through works such as Maurice Denis's Holy Women at the Tomb, He Qi's On the Road to Emmaus, Guercino's Incredulity of St. Thomas, and William Blake's River of Life. The result not only increases our understanding of the vital connection between the resurrection of the Son of God and the transformation of human existence, but also helps us to trust in the security of Christ's grasp on our lives, as he daily sustains us by his love and power.
