When the Church gets lost in the maze of competing cultural agendas, its revolutionary message and life-giving influence are compromised and eventually consumed. This increasing marginalization is exactly what began to happen in the latter half of the twentieth century.
Many say the answer is for the Christian community to seek a more prominent position in society, but respected teacher and best-selling author Dr. Robert L. Wise contends that we must confront the surrounding culture with a deeper understanding of Christ’s resurrection. Only by recovering and sharing the resurrection of the living Lord can the Church reclaim the experience of the first believers, who found in the resurrection a doorway to personal redemption that, in turn, transformed society around them. The Son Rises is a fresh exploration of Jesus Christ’s resurrection from the dead and His promise of continuing relationship with those who believe in Him.
