The resurrection is usually mentioned only during Easter and discussions of apologeticsbut it has overwhelming implications for our daily lives. Allberry describes the amazing significance of the resurrection in four important and practical ways.
Sam Allberry studied at Wycliffe Hall in Oxford and has worked with Overseas Missionary Fellowship and at St. Ebbe's in Oxford, England. He is currently associate minister of St. Mary's Church, Maidenhead, UK.
Sam Allberry has written a wonderful book on the significance of the resurrection. Full of great images, clearly organized, encouraging, humorous, Biblical, insightfulI could go on. Reading this little volume on this central but neglected topic will benefit your life. If you would like more assurance, transformation, hope & purpose, this book shows you how we get all that from the resurrection of Christ.
After Mark Dever recommended Sams book, the pastoral staff of Covenant Life Church all put aside time to read and discuss Lifted-you should too.
It is extraordinary that there are relatively few books that focus on the vital implications of Jesus resurrection. This book helps to plug that gap with a much-needed introduction to what the resurrection has accomplished for us. Sam Allberry peppers good teaching with engaging illustrations which make this a very helpful book for everyone who wants to re-examine this truth.
I think this book rocks! All Christian people need to know the great joy of living in the light of the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. Sam Allberry has done us all a favour in writing such an engaging and readable book about such a vital subject. It is by turns amusing, moving, encouraging and profound. Writing out of his years of ministry to university students and from his own Christian experience, Sam helps us to look to a familiar horizon with fresh eyes. Lifted is a book that could easily form the centre of a discussion group, but individual readers will be well, lifted! by what they find here.
Sixty years ago, the night I came to know that Jesus, Gods beloved Son, had so loved me that he died for my sins, I was given Philippians 3:10 as my new lifes verse: That I may know [Christ], and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings. After reading this book, Lifted, by Sam Allberry, I feel I have at last entered into a full (or at least, a fuller) understanding of knowing the power of his resurrection. I am only sorry I did not read this book many years ago!
