“Raised with Christ is wonderfully accessible to ordinary Christians because Adrian Warnock is, in his own words, an ordinary Christian. Those who follow his popular blog will recognize his sincere and straightforward style, as he explains why the resurrection is not merely a dry doctrine about a past event but a promise that the life of the risen Christ can transform our lives today.”
—Nancy Pearcey, Author, Total Truth: Liberating Christianity from Its Cultural Captivity
"The resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead separates Christianity from all mere religion—whatever its form. Christianity without the literal, physical resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead is merely one religion among many. Adrian Warnock points us all to the centrality of the resurrection for every dimension of the Christian life. Adrian is a first-rate communicator and a man whose life demonstrates the joy of Christ's resurrection. You will be greatly blessed by this book."
—R. Albert Mohler Jr., President and Joseph Emerson Brown Professor of Christian Theology, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
“Finally, a new generation of readers has a clear and highly readable book on the resurrection of Jesus Christ. In Raised with Christ, Christians are in for a delightful surprise as they grasp anew all the benefits which flow from Jesus’ resurrection—what an awesome difference it can make in our lives, our churches, and our communities! Thank you, Adrian, for helping to open our eyes to all the glories and the blessings of Christ’s resurrection and the power, present and future, which proceeds from it.”
—Joni Eareckson Tada, Founder and CEO, Joni and Friends International Disability Center
"An important reminder—for members and leaders in Christ's Church—that the celebration of Jesus' resurrection isn't just for Easter. It's for every day of our lives. Since Jesus rose from the dead, everything he said and did is not only true, it has a profound impact on how we are to live. This book not only reminds of that, it also points us toward meaningful application of this life-changing event."
—Elliot Grudem, Director, A29 Network; pastor, Mars Hill Church; Editor, Christian Beliefs
“Adrian Warnock presents a beautiful picture of why the resurrection matters to each of us. In Raised with Christ, the resurrection of Jesus is unleashed to its exalted place where it supplies our new birth, surrounds our new life, and empowers our new mission. With great clarity, Adrian teaches how the resurrection of Christ matters every day.”
—Ed Stetzer, President, LifeWay Research; author, Subversive Kingdom
"Adrian Warnock rightly highlights the common neglect of the resurrection and helpfully shows why this matters. Come and share the excitement of his own rediscovery of this central event of our faith."
—Tim Chester, pastor, Grace Church, Boroughbridge; Curriculum Director, Acts 29-Oak Hill Academy; author, You Can Change, A Meal With Jesus, and Good News to the Poor
"This book faithfully expounds the Bible's teaching on Christ's resurrection and ours and applies the power of Christ's resurrection to our lives here and now. Read it and know better the immeasurable greatness of God's power toward us who believe."
—Bobby Jamieson, Assistant Editor, 9Marks
"Adrian Warnock is brilliantly obsessed with the resurrection! He believes that Jesus Christ being raised from death is the only way to have hope that goes beyond the grave. In this punchy and accessible book, Adrian helps us to look forward expectantly to a life of eternal future joy, united with God, and in this life, to experience the Holy Spirit and preach the good news in the power of the resurrection. I'm thankful to Adrian for reorienting me to this essential ingredient of life and belief. You will be too."
—Marcus Honeysett, author, Finding Joy
“Books are often dull, repetitive or have nothing new to say. Raised with Christ is different. It is well-written, well-researched, and well-worth reading. Read this book and Adrian will excite your heart, stretch your mind, and bless your soul with the fantastic, life-changing truth of Christ conquering death. I’m excited to promote this book.”
—Jonathan Carswell, founder of The 10 Group of Companies (incorporating www.10ofthose.com)
"This is an excellent book on a much neglected subject. We Christians need to learn again to be Easter people, and Adrian has done us all a great service in producing this book."
—Sam Allberry, author, Lifted
"Every so often, a book is written that reawakens our soul to some gloriously powerful aspect of the full gospel. The resurrection is such a truth, and this is such a book. Adrian Warnock has been a part of the church I lead since 1995 and has served on our leadership team for more than ten years. It is my delight that he has written this engaging volume on such a life-transforming truth. If you want to know why the resurrection is crucial to your faith, if you want to know where the power for a transformed life comes from, then read this hugely accessible book and gain fresh insight into the most powerful event that has ever happened, the resurrection."
—Tope Koleoso, Pastor, Jubilee Church, London
"Packed with gems and clear, heart-affecting theology, this is a plum pudding of a book that the church badly needs."
—Michael Reeves, President and Professor of Theology, Union School of Theology, Oxford, England; author, Delighting in the Trinity, The Unquenchable Flame, and Rejoicing in Christ
"Adrian has helpfully drawn the spotlight back to a strangely under-emphasized element of evangelical faith. He writes winsomely and with fitting enthusiasm. I hope many will find their way to a fuller grasp of the gospel through this highly accessible book."
—Joel Virgo, Lead Pastor, Church of Christ the King, Brighton
"Adrian Warnock has a passion to put the resurrection back in the center of our proclamation. He understands that without a risen Savior there is no credibility to Jesus' claims, no salvation through his death, no reason for Christian living, no explanation of the church's existence, and no hope of eternal life. This book challenged me to reexamine my own preaching to see whether there was enough of Christ risen in it."
—Liam Goligher, Senior Minister, Tenth Presbyterian Church, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; author, The Jesus Gospel
"Congenital heretics, in every generation, take a fiendish delight in warping the gospel. The gospel is centered upon two great facts—Christ's crucifixion and stand-in death for us to expunge our guilt, and Christ's return from the grave in his body to secure our salvation and the renewal of all things. The latter is criminally neglected in much preaching and writing. Few books exist that can inspire and excite both preachers and general readers alike concerning the importance of the resurrection as this one does. Warnock's bang-up-to-date, big-picture approach is a gold mine of glittering insights, designed to shatter our dulled over-familiarity and rekindle an awed sense of wonder."
—Greg Haslam, Senior Minister, Westminster Chapel, London

Warnock has authored a fascinating new book on the resurrection of Jesus Christ. But not just the resurrection, but on the importance of the resurrection. The book deals with how the resurrection of Christ affects absolutely everything. There have been other books written on the historicity of the resurrection, the theological importance of the resurrection, and other concepts around the resurrection but Warnock has helped those who are simply striving to live the Christian life in the pew to understand how the resurrection affects everything. And he does this admirably. As the Western Church has in some areas denied the resurrection and the rest have often denied the power of the resurrection, it is so important to be reminded of the what and why of the resurrection of Christ today in our churches.
Warnock begins his volume with the standard fare of treating the historicity, the understanding of resurrection in the time of the Old Testament and New Testament, and some of the initial theological implications of the resurrection.Read more ›
"Christians have the same power that raised Christ Jesus from the dead living inside them. One day that power will complete the work of saving us, but in the meantime the normal Christian life can be one in which we are very aware of the change that the resurrection brings. We are citizens of the age to come, living in a world that is dead to God. But we are not dead to him. We live to him. May God help us live in the light of that fact more each day. One day we will all see that, thanks to the death and resurrection of Jesus, everything really has been changed. The whole creation will have been renewed, and we will be like him."
Warnock's consistent message proclaims that because Christians are in Christ, Christ's resurrection implies our resurrection. Raised with Christ unpacks the massive implications of this spiritual reality. His commensurate premise states that while the early Church and believers throughout Church history emphasized Christ's death and resurrection, Christians today tend to highlight Christ's death for our sin, while minimizing the importance of, or being ignorant about, the implications of Christ's resurrection.
Of course, unless the tomb truly was empty, our claims of resurrection power today are equally empty. Thus, Warnock begins by exploring the biblical evidence for Christ's resurrection.Read more ›
Special thanks to Connie of Crossway for a review copy of this book.
Whenever I hear about a book that deals with resurrection in some form, I get excited. As I've been teaching the Bible in a local church context for a few years, I've encountered few people with much knowledge regarding the Bible's teaching on resurrection. Christians believe that Jesus rose from the dead, but that's about it. When I ask what the implications are of Christ's resurrection, I'm answered with confused looks and blank stares. Every now and then someone will refer to Romans 6:4, "...raised to walk in newness of life," in a discussion. Almost no one has mentioned the resurrection of the body from 1 Corinthians 15. Ephesians 1:18-19? Silence. You get the idea.
So naturally I'd gravitate toward a book like Adrian Warnock's Raised with Christ: How the Resurrection Changes Everything. Warnock, himself a local church preacher and teacher, has noticed a dearth of resurrection related sermons and books. He notes that there has been such a strong focus on the cross, which is certainly central, that we might forget just how crucial the resurrection is to Christian faith and life. Warnock helps us correct this neglect with this book.
In 260 pages, Warnock tries to cover a lot of ground. He delves a little into apologetics for the empty tomb, though not enough to convince an unbeliever (nor do I think he was trying to). His discussion on the central role of Jesus' resurrection in the book of Acts was extremely helpful. I'm not sure how anyone could not reference the resurrection in their evangelism after reading this chapter!Read more ›
