Alford draws us into his sermons about the resurrection by showing the reader how much we today can identify with the journey of the disciples and women that discovered Christ’s empty tomb. Many wrestling with the Bible have experienced the shattering of all we have known to be true, as was with the disciples when they first mourned Christ’s death and then in shock realized that he did indeed rise from the grave as he had promised. These four sermons begin with Christ’s resurrection and end with his ascension.
