No event in history can compare with the resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ. It was an event that has transformed countless lives as well as the entire world by its tantamount implications. Being fundamental to the Christian faith, the resurrection of Christ has been described as “the most attested fact in history.” Despite this “fact” some publicity-seeking, unbelieving clergymen dare to cast doubt on this truth almost every Easter Sunday.

The aim of this book is to dispel any seeds of doubt that may have been sown in the minds of the Lord’s people. Focusing on the biblical evidence for the resurrection, The Risen Redeemer will ground the reader in the truth of the Gospel that he might be drawn closer to the precious Lamb of God.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. It is heart-warming in its appreciation of our Lord Jesus Christ, crucified and risen. It is easy to read, and devotional, and well-known themes come afresh to renew the soul.

The book is interspersed with some of our best hymns, and also with other quotations …

The author takes us through each of the four Gospel accounts of the first Easter Sunday, without the mentally trying task of putting them together chronologically. Being a short book, with long quotations from Scripture and elsewhere, it can comfortably be read in half a day.

There are also chapters on our Lord’s meeting with the two disciples on the Emmaus Road, his appearance to the disciples behind closed doors, and his seashore appearance…

The author’s apt turns of phrase (‘The Son of God became the Son of Man that the sons of men might become the sons of God’) and his ability to dwell helpfully on various biblical themes (like the ministry of angels and Old Testament prophecies of the resurrection) contribute to make this a worthwhile read.
