This is an in-depth study on the reality and benefits of the resurrection. It begins with instruction on how to properly read the Bible by probing the question of how the apostles received their personal theology. In a very challenging way, this book shows how many systems of truth can be both dangerous and cruel. The heart is viewed as "in Adam" versus "in Christ." The necessity of every believer living under an open heaven is revealed, along with the process of making this a personal reality.
This book focuses on the true meaning and value of sonship. It also reveals the nature of the church. Both its constitution and order are stressed with the purpose of producing growth. Jesus said, "I have meat to eat that you know not of." The book develops the nature of the "hidden manna," the benefits of spiritual nourishment as we also learn to daily eat of the bread from heaven. Dr. DePolo believes that the eternal laws and principles shared in this study will permanently change the life of the believer. This study was taught over a period of thirty-eight weeks to his Coffeebreak Bible Class that meets every Friday morning.
