The Risen ExistencePaul Scott, via The Good Book Stall
This is the Easter book that Paula Gooder admits she would have liked to have read, one that unpacks what the ‘risen life’ really means for us in this present moment. That fact must, therefore, say something about the Churches historic ambivalence in this area of faith, and so makes the book hugely important. She has chosen 42 passages from the New Testament for her discussion – so if it is read between Easter and Pentecost that would offer six a week for seven weeks (she allows one day off a week). This commitment is prefaced by a concise resum&éacute; of our tangled ideas of what Resurrection signifies as its part in the end times, its part in life after death, and its part in the transformation of our present lives.
Paula Gooder has an easy style and is not afraid to reveal herself in her writing, yet this is never self-serving, it is always with a clear purpose, to illustrate or clarify a point. Neither does she want to have the last word, to dogmatise. She takes her reader firstly through the gospels, then the epistles, always informative but scattering jewels along the path, revealing the truth that Jesus Christ has transformed the world, and that we can experience God’s new age if only we look. Read this book, and your Easter, and the weeks after it, will never be the same again.
