Publisher's Summary

A beloved pastor and a New York Times bestselling author examine scripture and share inspiring personal stories to help show the important role that Jesus’ resurrection plays in our everyday lives.

The Son of God was crucified, died and buried, and He lay in the tomb for three days—until He walked out shining like the sun. In a culture in which history is erased or rewritten at will, the existence of an empty tomb matters. Why? 

Because if the tomb is empty—then anything is possible. 

In his first book, Joby Martin, Lead Pastor of the Church of Eleven22, dives deep into scripture and traces the story of salvation by highlighting the seven mountains throughout scripture where God manifests himself. As he describes each encounter with God, Martin shows us how the interaction on each mountain laid the groundwork for the sacrifice of Christ on Calvary, and shows what God revealed about Himself in the process. He illuminates seven familiar passages, unveiling how God's plan for Christ's sacrifice is threaded throughout scripture, and shows why Christ's resurrection—impossible, unbelievable—means that nothing is too hard for our God. Ultimately, he asks listeners, Do you live every day of your life as if the tomb is empty—or as though Jesus is still hanging on that cross?

Written with New York Times bestselling author Charles Martin, If the Tomb is Empty is an insightful and spiritually rich examination of what the miracle of Christ's resurrection means for all of us.

Critic Reviews

"If the tomb is empty, then anything is possible…. What if we really believed that? Joby Martin challenges us with this question in his first book and walks us through the scriptures to point us to the life changing truth of Jesus on the cross." (Matt Carter, Lead Pastor of Sagemont Church, Houston, TX, Author of The Long Walk Home)

“Joby Martin gives powerful examples in his own life and throughout Scripture where God intervened in the lives of ordinary people like you and me. He points us to the life-changing gospel of Jesus Christ and the Resurrection because it's the empty tomb that changes everything. With the same passion Joby preaches, his first book will inspire you. Every Christian should read it." (Phil Hopper, Lead Pastor of Abundant Life, Author of Defeating the Enemy and The Weapons of Our Warfare)

"There is no greater event, no greater story than the one Joby has based this book, his life, and ministry on - the empty tomb. When you finish, you will gain a paradigm shifting outlook on life." (Bryan Loritts, Author of The Dad Difference)

Loved this!

I absolutely loved this book and the author’s knowledge and his humor! I learned a lot of Biblical history and meaning that I didn’t previously know. I greatly encourage all who love Jesus or may not know him yet and all that he has done for us to save us, to listen to this book. As the author states, “If the tomb is empty, then anything is possible!”

This book, this guy… so good!

I am very thankful for Joby. He has been instrumental in my life for a long time. His first book is steeped in Biblical knowledge and having him narrate it makes the Audible version very special. You would do well to spend several hours with Joby yourself!

Experience the biblical truth of Jesus's death

in this very biblical book that helps Believers and unbelievers to make way for Christ to do amazing things in our lives. Releasing guilt through the Word of God and experiencing renewal through it too.

I will visit this man's church the next time I'm in town.

PHENOMENAL!

If The Tomb is Empty has helped me in a number of different ways. Especially from a mindset perspective. Joby has a very unique way of articulating Gods word that deeply resonates with me and I could not be more thankful for being a part of the COE22 family. I’m sure this book will speak to you the way it spoke to me.

Believe!!

I plan to listen to (and I also purchased a print copy, so read) this book over and over again, so that I will come to believe that anything is possible, because I already believe the tomb is empty! Praise the Lord!

I enjoyed it

This was not a story book. This was more of an instructional book.I love God and I love his Son Jesus. So, I enjoyed the book.

Impacted me like no other book

I laughed and cried reading this. Pastor Joby's sense of humor is the best, and his honesty about his past and about his struggles are powerful. His joy and exultation over Jesus and the Word is contagious. I found myself at some point in every chapter in a state of worship. I hope this book will reach millions of people and the hope that it illustrates will be infused into everyone who reads it.
