“The case for the bodily resurrection of Jesus, and the bodily resurrection of those who live by faith in him, is presented with clarity and conviction. What it means to believe in the resurrection of the body in the twenty-first century, and to live as those who believe it, is unfolded with gentle erudition, heartfelt passion, and practical wisdom. This labor of love will touch hearts and minds for the better.”
—John Saxbee, former Bishop of Lincoln, United Kingdom
“This is a rooted, readable, entertaining, and encyclopaedic resurrection tour de force, guiding us through antiquity, Scriptures, the church fathers, and the schoolmen to forensically examine their take on the subject. Rolf, an upbeat apologist for the resurrection, intelligently demolishes the views of demythologizing scholars, with Natanya’s Ignatian-style meditations on the Gospel narratives enabling the reader to see their every moment as resurrectable. An Easter treasure trove to cheer every Good Friday.”
—David Wilbourne, Honorary Assistant Bishop of York
“Living Resurrected Lives combines insightful scholarship and practical spiritual wisdom to unpack the meaning of Christ’s resurrection—showing how the promise and possibility of eternal life can bring joy and meaning to our lives today. It will open your mind and nurture your heart.”
—Carl McColman, author of Unteachable Lessons and The Big Book of Christian Mysticism
