50 Reasons why the Resurrection Changed Everything

by Steven D Mathewson


Price: £6.99
Publisher:Baker Books imprint of Baker Pub. from Lion
Published:February 2013

I devoured this book in just a few hours. However, the author's intention is that the fifty short chapters should be read at the rate of one reading a day. And he suggests that a good day to start would be on Easter Sunday. Anyone doing this will arrive at the last chapter on Pentecost Sunday. I plan to do this next Easter!

Steven has a real gift for making a complex subject easy to understand. As I read some of the chapters I felt that light-bulbs were clicking on in my mind. His enthusiasm for the subject lights up every page.

This is an important book, because for many people Jesus' Resurrection is just a footnote to His death on the Cross for our sins. But as you read these meditations you will clearly understand how the Resurrection changes everything and has a powerful impact on our lives now and throughout eternity. I can wholeheartedly recommend this book.
