This book lends hope to persons who are suffering or are in their declining years. A prolific writer of spiritual books, Caryll Houselander (1901-1954) wrote this one during her years of poor health.
In The Risen Christ she focuses on Jesus' Resurrection and the joy that is the mark of every Christian life. She brings to life the forty days of our Lord after the Resurrection. What Jesus taught us by his final days on earth shows that the Resurrection is the key to the joy that awaits all who follow in Christ's footsteps.
