The Things He Said
However, the content may not quite be what we imagine. Following the resurrection, we would expect the triumphant ‘I have risen from the dead’. Yet Jesus’ statements are so different, so apparently innocuous, that they are often overlooked. The Christian faith stands or falls on the resurrection of Jesus; without it, says St Paul, we are to be most pitied. In this revelatory book of surprising reflections, Stephen Cottrell’s retelling of the Easter story encourages us to slow down and hear it properly – perhaps for the very first time.
A lively and original piece of work, which contains much to stimulate both thought and debate.
An accomplished devotional writer, Cottrell brings a very lively approach to his work. The Things He Said is actually energizing to read, conveying the Easter story in imaginative and atmospheric writing.
