Shelves: theology
From early in this book you can sense the subtitle, “Serving in the Hope of the Risen Lord,” illustrated and focused upon. Purves looks deeply at the theological consequences of Jesus resurrection on ministry. The Resurrection of Ministry is a wonderful, focused reminder of the theology of the resurrection and its implications for life and ministry. I plan to keep this book on my shelf and turn back to it time to time to remind me of my roots as both a Christ follower and pastor.

“Without incarnation the Word would not have become flesh, and Jesus would not have existed;
without ascension our humanity would not have entered into communion with the Father, and Jesus would have no continuing ministry. With the incarnation, God made his "home" in our human place; with the ascension, Jesus, the human one, has made his "home" in God's place, from whence in the Spirit he continues to exercise his mission from the Father.”
