We often hope for an abundant life with Christ in the next life, but how can we let ourselves and our own desires die so we can be born again to a new life, a full life in Christ, here and now in this mortal life?
In this MI Guest Lecture, Adam Miller offers suggestions—at once scriptural, philosophical, and literary—for how to share a life with Christ today. The lecture is based on his forthcoming book, An Early Resurrection: Life In Christ Before You Die.
