The resurrection is the foundation of your total freedom and complete victory in Christ. And so it is an event-an experience-that's worthy of your daily celebration.

Reviews - What do customers think about Experiencing The Resurrection?
A most important message Mar 8, 2008
What is so important about the resurrection? What does it mean in the life of the believer? The book starts with explaining the need for the resurrection: which is man's sin and the Father's desire to redeem fallen man from his sin. But the Resurrection did more than that. It was the beginning of God's relationship with redeemed man. The book begins by pointing out that the resurrection is the validation that Christ was fully capable of paying the price for man's sin.
In this book, the Blackabys not only explore the meaning of the resurrection, they also explore the relationship believers have with God as a result of the Resurrection - and the reason why so few believers actually experience the relationship that God intended. Chief among these is that God intended His followers to experience joy. Yet few Christians experience deep joy in their lives.
Jesus said, "I am come that your joy might be full." Yet there are many Christians who don't have that joy either showing up on their face or being evident in their lives. The Blackabys then carry the reader through a series of teachings that allow the reader to see exactly what the scriptures have to say about the Resurrection and an uncommon life, as well as the peace, power, hope, joy, and confidence that are available as a result of the Resurrection. Each chapter unlocks more of the living water that every Christian thirsts for as a part of his or her daily experience with God - but that is so often missing.
The key, as they often repeat, is responding to what God has done - rather than doing something to receive something from God. This is a message worth studying and letting soak into one's mind - it is the essence of grace versus works.
Armchair Interviews: Important message for believers.
The resurrection offers hope... Feb 29, 2008
While we have concentrated on the cross and the painful death of Jesus Christ, the empty tomb is where our hope comes from. "Without the resurrection, the cross is meaningless." It takes much more than believing in your head that Christ was resurrected it takes believing it in your heart and then "embrace it as yours." Henry & Melvin Blackaby are father and son. Together they authored a trilogy that will lead readers in "experiencing the gospel of Christ in its fullness." Experiencing the Resurrection is book two. They present the resurrection is simple terms. It is their goal to give deeper meaning to the resurrection. The Blackabys reveal the keys to life: "repentance, obey completely, and seek the Lord with all your heart." Experiencing the Resurrection would make a very nice gift for a new believer or perhaps a graduation gift. The wisdom in Experiencing the Resurrection will fill all readers with hope.
