Risen Again

For the third year in a row, I'll be reading Risen: 50 Reasons why the Resurrection Changed Everything a short book with a reading for each day from Resurrection Sunday to Pentecost.

As I said in March 2013:
Many Christians devote a month or so to contemplating the Cross during the weeks leading up to Resurrection Sunday (Easter). Some call that time "Lent" (and some use the time better than others, but that's another post).
Why wouldn't we devote the same amount of time to meditating on what happened after the Cross that validated everything the Cross accomplished and changed everything forever?
Risen was one of my 5 top books of 2015. In my review, I said:
Mathewson masterfully takes readers on a treasure hunt through the New Testament to find out how the apostles connected the doctrine of the resurrection to other points of doctrine and then to our lives. 
On one level, I knew most of the things he said, but I had never thought as deeply or as interconnectedly about them on the level that Risen takes you, especially all at one time.
Join me this year?

Risen is only 4.99 right now on Amazon or just $1.99 for the Kindle version! There is still time to get one delivered before Sunday.
