Show synopsis Our greatest battle today is not with terrorism, too much government, or secularism - it's our battle with sin. For centuries, scholars and students of the Word have grappled with Romans 6:1-14 and its key phrases that speak to this battle - dead to sin, old man, body of sin, slaves to sin, and freed from sin. What do these mean? What do they have to do with the battle with sin? In Dead Men Rising, Jonathan Williams (host of the Heaven and Home Hour Radio broadcast) provides an in-depth analysis of these phrases for the Christian leader searching for an accurate theological basis for holy living and practical help for the growing believer serious about obeying God's Word. This book will clear up centuries-long confusion on this important text for holy living. But this book is about more than overcoming sin, saying no to sin's desires, or keeping sin in its place so that it doesn't rule over us. It is about finding grace, growing in righteousness, and living in resurrection power. It is about presenting ourselves to God as people alive from the dead and becoming fully conformed to His image in our character and conduct so that when people see us, they see Christ shining through. Dead Men Rising helps you discover Paul's thinking and find answers to the questions that have long puzzled and exasperated Christians who want to be faithful to the Word but honest with the condition of their lives. You will resolve biblical dilemmas, but more importantly you will draw near with confidence to the crucified, risen, enthroned, and Spirit-empowering Lord who will enable you to live in a way pleasing to God.
