Summary

The gospel of Jesus Christ is not about what Jesus can do for your life. It is not even the answer to the question, “How can I be saved?” It is the declaration of a victory. In his coming to earth, his suffering, and his Resurrection, Christ conquered demons, sin, and death. In Arise, O God, author and podcaster Fr. Andrew Stephen Damick introduces us to the spiritual war that Christ won by his victory, how we are caught in that war’s cosmic crossfire, what the true content of the gospel is—and how we are to respond.

Concise, well structured and well presented.

A short but good presentation of the gospel through the lens of Orthodox Christianity. Does not stray or dally, being focused at its goal and achieving it.

Father Andrew has a good media voice so his reading was great.

Clarity

As one who didn’t dip her toe into the orthodoxy but rather has jumped cannonball style in. I realize I’m taking on too much water so to speak but I’m hungry. I’m so hungry I’m choking on information. Arise O God has pulled a of info together that I’ve been reading and made it a bit more bite-size. Father Andrew Steven Damick does not diminish or lessen the quality of information presented he just has a mastery of language that helps clearly communicate the point.

The “Why” of Christianity, sorely missing today

This book is a blessing. It’s short, clear, and motivating. It is the defense of our hope that the modern Church is sorely unprepared to deliver. It delivers cosmic Why, and an invitation to the greatest adventure and challenge available to Man - exactly what so many thirst for, and available to us all!

A great overview of what the Gospel means

This is a short but insightful gem. It is good for even longtime Christians like me. The author is known as a good storyteller and does not disappoint the reader (listeners)

clarification... finally.

I have searched the scriptures for years, ann ask of questions of church leaders... and could never corolate the two...
all the missing truth I thought I found in scriptures, and conviction of the Holy Spirit was confirmed in this excellent book.
I finally have a light on my path...
I would recommend this book to anyone trying to make sense of all the confusion the modern church leaders have brought into the "gospels as they see it"... the truth does really set you free...
