Resurrection: Truth or Deception?

resurrection_power-epub_cvrIn Resurrection Power! Spiritual Solutions for an Anxious Age, Robert Garrity seeks to represent timeless truths from philosophy, theology, psychology and law to introduce readers to the idea of leading victorious, joyful lives, even in these anxious times. He offers a spiritual guide that is as practical as it is life-changing, organizing his discussion around empowerment over daily struggles and joyful acceptance of what cannot be overcome.

Garrity draws a framework for exploring the bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ of Nazareth and argues that we, like Jesus after the Resurrection, share in his new and indestructible life and that we rise daily with him. We share Paul’s teaching that “Sin and death have no more power over him.”

Second Edition

In this newly released second—digital only—edition, the author challenges us once again to delve more deeply into the subject through supplemental material…The Resurrection: Truth or Deception? Here Fr. Garrity explores a unique approach to find proof of the Resurrection of Jesus Christ. He explores “is God real?” through examining the historicity of the evidence—truth or deception?—through a “mock trial” narrative with St. Paul on the stand in order to bring out the facts in the “case” followed by a hypothetical “verdict of truth” that Jesus rose from the dead. Finally, Garrity offers an analysis of the Bible’s narrative tradition along with an hour-by-hour timeline of the first Easter Sunday.

Throughout, Fr. Garrity shows the source and relevance of the Resurrection doctrine in an easily understood format with frequent summaries of major points and scriptural references. The book will engage readers seeking to better understand the relevance of the Resurrection and its explosive power for genuine spiritual renewal. Buy the eBook on Apple iTunes »

Resurrection Power! Spiritual Solutions for An Anxious Age

Resurrection Power! coverEntirely practical in nature, though inspired by timeless truths from philosophy and theology, psychology, and law, Resurrection Power! provides readers with useful thoughts about living every day with a supremely-positive attitude and strength. St. Paul identifies this as “the power of Christ’s resurrection”—given for victorious and joyful living in this life and in the next.

Author Robert M. Garrity underscores that Resurrection Power is not a force that relieves us of all pain or removes all suffering from our lives, but really can help us to rise above our daily problems, burdens, and difficulties. #resurrection

This book is recommended for Basic Theology, Soteriology, and Resurrection courses as well as church libraries, book clubs, retreat houses, and anyone seeking practical solutions for relieving the stresses of daily life.
