Why Jesus when there are so many options? On Sunday at the 6pm we enjoyed hearing from Kanishka Raffel that Christianity is unique because Jesus has conquered death. You can catch up on the sermon at the end of this post.

If you'd like to think more about the resurrection here are two book recommendations for you. Why not pick one up for your summer reading?

case for christ

The Case for Christ by Lee Strobel is for you if you'd like to think more about the evidence for the resurrection. Here's the blurb:

“Is there credible evidence that Jesus of Nazareth really is the Son of God?
Retracing his own spiritual journey from atheism to faith, Lee Strobel, former legal editor of the Chicago Tribune, cross-examines a dozen experts with doctorates from schools like Cambridge, Princeton, and Brandeis who are recognized authorities in their own fields.
Strobel challenges them with questions like, How reliable is the New Testament? Does evidence for Jesus exist outside the Bible? Is there any reason to believe the resurrection was an actual event?”

lifted

If you're interested in what difference the resurrection makes to the Christian life, then check out Lifted by Sam Allberry.

“The resurrection has overwhelmingly positive implications for our daily lives. Through it we can have real assurance of forgiveness and salvation. We are raised and empowered to live new, transformed lives. We have hope after death for our bodies and this physical world. We see the urgency of reaching all nations with the message of the risen Jesus. Life is now different: we have been lifted.”

Both are available on the St Helen's bookstall or from our friends at 10ofthose.
