Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from Thomas Nelson publishers as part of their book review bloggers program. All opinions expressed are my own, and I was not required to write a positive review.
The Resurrected Ones is a story of the great providences of God. “Providence” is an interesting word. It means “The protective care of God." This is a story of God's caring in chaos! It is the story of certain saints resurrected from their graves following the Crucifixion as told in the Bible. Richard K. Thomas examines the reasons why these saints were brought back to Earth.
