This is one of those books that continually makes you ruminate over each paragraph. I read it on a 3 hour plane ride and only completed 17 pages. You are constantly forced to reevaluate your time on this Earth and your part in bringing Christ's glory to it.

A very thorough run down of the resurection and what it means for belivers. As technical as a writer as Mr. Wright is, this was the best book I've read in a very long time. I bought it after my 4th time renewing it :)
