Life in a Risen Saviour


A & C Black 1858

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


Few passages in the New Testament are as foundational to the Christian faith as 1 Corinthians 15, because it defends the Resurrection as central to the Christian faith. Paul faces the hard questions believers have wrestled with since the end of Jesus' earthly ministry: "What is the significance of a bodily resurrection?" "What if the resurrection was a big hoax?" In this classic volume, Robert S. Candlish presents nineteen discourses on 1 Corinthians 15. Candlish handles the text as a master preacher and skilled exegete, carefully illustrating the unity in Paul's argument within 1 Corinthians 15 as well as logical connection between other themes within the Apostle's letter. In addition to Paul's chapter on resurrection, Candlish offers expositions on John 11 and Isaiah 25. Explore the hope of resurrection and the promise of an eternal kingdom with one of Scotland's favorite preachers.
