The Blessed Hope of the Resurrection traces, through Scripture, the doctrine of the bodily resurrection of Christians. The message of redemption began in Genesis with the promise of a Redeemer (Gn 3:15); was realized in Christ Jesus with His death, burial, and bodily resurrection; and will be completed when Christians are also bodily resurrected at Christ's return (Rv 5:10, 21, 22). Thanks so much for writing such a concise presentation of the defense of the gospel, especially that aspect of the gospel which is our future life with Christ .... You consistently made a parallel between the immediate (present status and benefits of our salvation) and the ultimate (future status and benefits of our salvation). The parallel throughout your book was powerful. -Dr. Don Pahl, pastor, Evangelical Bible Church, Omaha, Nebraska I can't wait for others to read it and benefit from its message .... I don't know if I can adequately express my joy in reading (it) .... I hope to be able to lead a study of it someday. -Julie Smith, Christian school administrator Made me want to have a Bible next to me to look up these passages and read them for myself. -Patty Redding, nurse E]xcellent for a highly motivated reader ... asking the question, "How can I discover the extent of support that exists in Scripture for the doctrine of bodily resurrection?" You have definitely answered that question. -Dr. Doug McIntosh, pastor, Cornerstone Bible Church, Lilburn, Georgia, and noted author of Christian books Juliet Barber has a Master's in Education from Georgia State University and a Master's in Biblical Studies from Dallas Theological Seminary.
