4.0 out of 5 stars Complex but well worth reading!, 28 Jun 2009
This review is from: Surprised by Hope (Paperback)
This book was recommended to me by quite a few people. I found the subject matter mentally stretching (frequently), but when I did grasp sections it was a complete revelation, and well worth the struggle.
It introduces concepts which should completely transform our churches if we take them onboard (Champagne breakfasts for 8 days starting from Easter Sunday to make a REAL festival of Easter!)
What is really scary is how folklore, culture and misunderstandings over the years have pulled so many of us away from the reality of the resurrection and what it really means to us in our lives today. Even Christians who spend their whole lives working for God's new creation will benefit from going back to the original understandings and proof of what has the resurrection should mean to us all.
