Review

"After Mark Dever recommended Lifted, the pastoral staff of Covenant Life Church all put aside time to read and discuss it--you should too." --Joshua Harris, Covenant Life Church


"Short, punchy, engaging -- a great book to give to others. It's popular theology without compromising the theology." -- Tim Chester


Exactly what we need: joy-giving gospel truth, served up garden fresh. Read and rejoice!
--Michael Reeves, Theological Advisor for UCCF


"Sam Allberry peppers good teaching with engaging illustrations which make this a very helpful book for everyone who wants to re-examine this truth." -- Adrian Warnock, Author of Raised with Christ: How the Resurrection Changes Everything

"Writing out of his years of ministry to university students and from his own Christian experience, Sam helps us to look to a familiar horizon with fresh eyes." -- Michael Jensen, Moore Theological College, Sydney, Australia

"Sam Allberry has written a wonderful book on the significance of the resurrection. Full of great images, clearly organized, encouraging, humorous, biblical, insightful ... I could go on. Reading this little volume on this central but neglected topic will benefit your life. If you would like more assurance, transformation, hope, and purpose, this book shows you how we get all that from the resurrection of Christ." --Mark Dever

From the Back Cover

For many people the resurrection is a nice thing to believe in; a handy subject to return to at Easter time or when discussing apologetics. Otherwise we treat it as an event that happened long ago and far away--a "happy ending" to the gospel, after the darkness of the cross.
But Sam Allberry shows us that the resurrection is far more than a mere event. It isn't just for Easter; it has overwhelmingly positive implications for our lives every day.
The resurrection gives us real assurance of forgiveness and salvation, power to live new and transformed lives, and hope for life after death. Our lives are now different; we have been lifted. Read and be transformed by the real significance of the resurrection.

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Nate Claiborne on May 4, 2012
Format: Paperback
Though the resurrection is intensely practical and our faith would be shipwrecked without it, we rarely think about how the resurrection changes everything. Sam Allberry hopes to change that, I think this little introduction goes a long way down that path. His book is very well written and easy to follow. It helps as well that he tells many short anecdotes that help you conceptualize some of the concepts. The tone is conversational, and this fits perfectly the point of the book.

Allberry organizes his discussion of the resurrection life around four topics: assurance, transformation, hope, and mission. These make up the chapters of the book, and at around 30 pages each, you've got a fairly short book on your hands. But, much like a window is small from a distance, once you're up close you can see outside into a whole new world.

In the introduction, Allberry notes that generally speaking, the doctrine of the resurrection has run into two problems: (1) Credibility and (2) Relevance. After reading Wright's book, I don't see the first being a real problem, but more of a smokescreen skeptics use to dodge the claims of Christianity. The second though is a little more of a pervasive issue within the church. This means that people who don't deny the authenticity of the resurrection will have trouble with the applications of the resurrection. To alleviate this, Allberry explores four topics, which conveniently make up the four chapters of his book.

Assurance

The resurrection assures of many things, but in this chapter Allberry highlights two in particular. First, it assures of who Jesus is. In Wright's language, we could say the resurrection justified Jesus as both Messiah and Lord. Allberry adds to this that it assures of Jesus as the author of life and our savior.

Format: Paperback
Lifted, Experiencing the Resurrection Life is written by Sam Allberry and published by P&R Publishing.

There are not many books on the Resurrection so when I saw this book I was very interested in reading it. It did not disappoint! After reading this book you will never doubt the significance of the resurrection of Christ. Easter will not just be another holiday but a day to reflect on all Christ has given you by rising from the dead.

This book was laid out in a very easy to follow format. The language was very understandable and all the content was relevant. I liked the ample usage of Biblical references to help make his points. I especially enjoyed his writing style, as it was direct as well as instructional. I gave this book 5/5 stars because it was a well written and informative book about a subject not often written about.

I would like to thank NetGalley and the publisher for the copy of this book I enjoyed reading. I gave an honest review based on my opinion of what I read.

There is not a lot of depth to the book. But if you are desiring a short work that fixes your heart on the resurrected Savior than it will be worth your time.

Format: Paperback
I come from the cross-centered movement, which emphasizes the death of Christ to cover sin, but is often weaker on the other points of the gospel. My wife and I had been struggling with regular discouragement in our local church setting. People were preaching "the gospel" to us all the time - that Jesus had died for our sins and that we were forgiven, but we still weren't encouraged -a thing which only accented our discouragement, since we knew it was true and felt that we should be encouraged. While it is absolutely wonderful news that God is not angry at us, we knew thats something was missing. This book helped us to get part of what was missing - the fact that Christians have more to hope and live for than merely escaping God's wrath in hell.

Being freshly reminded of the resurrection and its wonderful promises for the believer was a beacon of hope for us in a dark time. I am so grateful for the Covenant Life pastor who recommended this book to us. Demonstrating God's victory over death, which not only atones, but creates a new life and a new hope and a new future with God, Sam Allbury helped us to see the hope that we have in the resurrection, both in this life and in the life to come. I think the most helpful thing it did for me, however, was to open my eyes to all of the wonderful passages in Scripture that talk about the hope of the resurrection that I had just glossed over before.

While I don't feel that this book exhaustively covers all of the implications of the resurrection (I doubt such a book has been written yet, if you find it let me know!), it was a great starting place for study, and a manageable size that I could actually read all the way through (I am notorious for "starting" books -this is the first book in two years that I have finished that wasn't an assignment). I am very glad to see the new edition (we had to special order form England) and plan to order copies for several friends in the not so distant future.
