Although Easter is the most significant event in the Christian year, we rarely take time to explore what it means in detail. So much attention is given to Lent, yet the theology of resurrection is central not only to what we believe about God and Jesus, but to our understanding of ourselves.
Following the pattern of her Advent book, The Meaning is in the Waiting, Paula Gooder leads us on a biblical exploration of the resurrection accounts in each of the Gospels and in Paul's writings, as well as the account of the Ascension and coming of the Spirit at Pentecost in Acts.
Arranged for daily reading through the seven weeks of Eastertide, This Risen Existence opens with an extended reflection on ancient and contemporary understandings of resurrection. Subsequent chapters lead us on an exciting journey of discovery through the New Testament narratives in a quest to discover what resurrection tells us about life after death, the end times and what it actually means to be a Christian.
Paula Gooder is a freelance writer and lecturer in Biblical studies, a Reader in the Church of England and an honorary Canon Theologian at Birmingham and Guildford Cathedrals.
'[It] might just be the thing to help us carry on the discipline of meditation and reflection followed in Lent ... The introduction is well worth reading too so don't be tempted to skip it.' -Clem Jackson
