Ryken, Philip Graham
Do you long for heaven? Biblical Christianity is not fueled by a vague believe in the afterlife. Just as Christ rose from the dead, all who are united to him in faith will be raised bodily to enjoy eternal reward. But what does this mean? How will the dead be raised? When will this take place?
Joel Beeke unpacks these questions to reveal the multifaceted hope of our final resurrection, a hope that transforms the way we live and allows us to face death with confidence. See afresh the significance of Christ’s rising from the dead, and renew your joy in his coming.
Joel R. Beeke (PhD, Westminster Seminary) is president and professor of systematic theology and homiletics at Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary; a pastor of the Heritage Reformed Congregation in Grand Rapids, Michigan; editor of Banner of Sovereign Grace Truth; editorial director of Reformation Heritage Books; and a prolific author.
“A terrific resource for the church. Biblically clear, theologically penetrating, and apologetically sharp, this booklet will benefit pastors and laypeople alike. Armed with Beeke’s trademark pastoral insight, What is Resurrection? Is sure to bring spiritual blessing to those who enjoy this engaging read.” – Richard D. Phillips
