How can we encounter the risen Lord Jesus in a life transforming way? How can we be equipped and strengthened to share the message of the resurrection with the world? In the Gospels and the book of Acts, we find many of the New Testament's most profound and personal encounters. The risen Christ comes to his disciples in all their brokenness - their sadness, fear, doubt, shattered dreams and failure - and calls them to a future filled with hope, confidence, confirmed faith, new beginnings and restored lives. Encountering the Risen Christ reflects on the main characters in the post-resurrection accounts and shows how we too can encounter Jesus Christ in a life-transforming way.
The seven chapters plus discussion material can be used across the seven weeks from Easter to Pentecost in individual reflection or group study, or at any time of year.
