The Son of God was crucified, died, and was buried, and He lay in the tomb for three days—until He walked out shining like the sun. In a culture in which history is erased or rewritten at will, the existence of an empty tomb matters. Why?
Because if the tomb is empty—then anything is possible.
In his first book, Joby Martin, pastor of The Church of Eleven22, dives deep into Scripture and traces the story of salvation by highlighting the seven mountains throughout Scripture where God manifests himself.
As he describes each encounter with God, Martin shows us how the interaction on each mountain laid the groundwork for the sacrifice of Christ on Calvary, and shows what God revealed about Himself in the
process. He illuminates seven familiar passages, unveiling how God’s plan for Christ’s sacrifice is threaded throughout Scripture, and shows why Christ’s resurrection—impossible, unbelievable—means that nothing is too hard for our God. Ultimately, he asks readers, do you live every day of your life as if the tomb is empty…or as though Jesus is still hanging on that cross?
Written with New York Times bestselling author Charles Martin, If the Tomb Is Empty is an insightful and spiritually rich examination of what the miracle of Christ’s resurrection means for all of us.
"In If The Tomb is Empty Pastor Joby calls us into the life we were designed for. With his bold, unflinchingly biblical style he lays a path for the life we are meant to live into. A life of freedom and power. A life marked not just by blessing but rather the one who blesses. Page after page this book is about Jesus. What his resurrection purchased for you and the path into those things. Buy a couple of these and share with friends!"
"There is no greater event, no greater story than the one Joby has based this book, his life, and ministry on--the empty tomb. When you finish, you will gain a paradigm shifting outlook on life."
