Free Audio Book: Handel’s Messiah

Speaking of Handel’s Messiah, I recently reviewed Calvin Stapert’s new book Handel’s Messiah: Comfort for God’s People (Eerdmans, 2010). I found the book well organized, just the right length, and overall quite helpful. ChristianAudio is now offering Stapert’s book as a free audiobook (5.5 hrs; unabridged). Get it here.

Also, iTunes is selling a recording of the standard 1751 version of Messiah for $9.99. It comes packaged with about 20 hours of additional classical works (316 total tracks!). See here.

I Know That My Redeemer Liveth

Job 19:25-26:

I know that my Redeemer liveth,
and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth.
And though worms destroy this body,
yet in my flesh shall I see God.

1 Corinthians 15:20:

For now is Christ risen from the dead,
the first fruits of them that sleep.

1 Corinthians 15:21–22:

Since by man came death,
by man came also the resurrection of the dead.
For as in Adam all die,
even so in Christ shall all be made alive.
