What's your response to the resurrection?

Mike McKinley tackles a difficult question in his new book The Resurrection in Your Life: How the Living Christ Changes Your World (The Good Book Company, 2015). Far too many people are content to ask the question that the jailer asked of Paul and Silas, "Sirs what must I do to be saved?" (Acts 16:30). And since the 'story doesn't stop' McKinley invites his readers to ask the next question, what do we do now?
This book looks at the biblical events of  Luke 24 and Acts 1 and 2 and the response of the disciples - and more importantly the response of the disciples of today.
McKinley looks at the passages in question as a story. A story that as it ends leaves us wanted to see what happens next, and that is how the biblical story plays out. We're left waiting for the sequel, but different from other books, the sequel to the Bible as it was written is being played out in our everyday lives.  If you're not excited to see what happens next, it's time to read through the bible again.
I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for my review. I was not required to write a favorable review.
