However, there is no need God's help to come back to life after death. Even still more modern and secular literature and films, addressing the theme of resurrection unable to rid itself of its old charm. Here is made up of creative writers I have some secular way.
10. The Matrix
"The Matrix", written and directed by the Wachowskis in 1999, is often characterized as a deep philosophical film, Platonic ideals of modernity that subsequent references praised for its richness. However, it is not only philosophy but also plays an important role in Christ.
Also, while it is the matrix, the passive body in the real world is shown in agony. After that, his heart stops beating. In the nine stops breathing. "He goes", one of the certified agents.
Trinity, however, only nine disobedient Simulation System, does not believe in the eternity of death. He leans over Neo's body and it caused him to doubt.

Although Juliet's resurrection a "pseudo-resurrection is" because he was not dead. In fact, Shakespeare's figure can not be missed on this list for the play's greatest impact on the resurrection scenes and Shakespeare's clever way the resurrection of the explicable reason for secular readers.
8. Snow White

If someone still loves you as a body, they love you even if you die, then the love of your life is enough power to give back to you, the seem to suggest fairy tales.

Comes out of the poisonous piece of apple Snow White's throat, he opens his eyes and is "alive again". Following marriage and happiness.
Again, this is God's love is that it brings back to life the figures. The data innocent like a martyr and that is good and beautiful, had to die only to overthrown by evil. Fortunately, evil is not the last word here.
Often it is not only the best film director Alfred Hitchcock, but never made it, "Vertigo" is a classic of psychological suspense would claim to be the best film of 1958. "Like Romeo and Juliet", is composed of a double murder resurrection worldly and leads to even more cruel, real and unchangeable death.
Detective Scottie Madeleine, falls in love with his friend's wife, he is expected to follow. Because it suffers from Scottie Acrophobia (fear of heights), they may one day when he does not jump from a church tower, Madeleine's death prevention. Scottie, breaks down even feels guilty and is clinically depressed.
A flashback tells us that Scottie fantasizing due to their shock, but Judy and Madeleine are in fact the same person. Scottie had to observe a qtl- complot which has been hit so arranged by his old friend he Madeleine's "suicide" in the murder of the wife of his friend's. Judy, who had worked so as to be Madeleine, was never dead.
For Scottie, of course, the judgment confusing should be: on the one hand, he has found the love that he is unworthy of Judy's death, the woman never die, but on the other hand, he said the face of Judy who never thought they had. Driven mad by the fact that, Scottie forces Judy Bell tower. No, they accept the plan and she begs him to forgive her for Scottie loves it. However, suddenly appears a shadow tower trapdoor.

He let death come not true staging a popular way of resurrection without having to employ but their ghost or spirit. Any change in the style of an active world such as the ghost of Shakespeare alive again.
The tragedy of "Hamlet", world literature's most powerful and influential tragedies begin with, two sentries faced a ghost that looks like the old king, Hamlet's dead father. Later, Hamlet surely his dead father and that of his brother, Claudius, for the crown and Hamlet's mother, is poisoned by driven by lust Gertrud was excited was the ghost who tells him is able to speak. Since then, the ghost of Hamlet avenge his killing to eat before disappearing species.
This recovery scenario changed literature forever. Revival time's "out of joint", thus, have caused doubts in existence, and being nostalgic memory of the young protagonist's inability to work and immobility.
After this tragedy, it could not have been more tragic: The Hamlet manages to kill Claudius, accidentally kills him too, Polonius and Laertes. Her mother kills herself poisoned himself by accident Gertrude and Ophelia grief. Thus, the revival of the King's death leads to death.
5. The Green Henry
"Green Henry" is one of the most important novels of the 19th century formation (Bildungsroman). Written by Swiss writer Gottfried Keller, is focused on the development of young Henry, who wants to be a landscape-painter.
However, Keller wrote the first published in 1855 in 1879, and the second, two versions of the novel, actually a modified version of the mass.
Both versions is the most striking: in 1855 the novel ends with Henry's death caused an unbearable suffering and guilt. The amazing thing is, Jenny Henry Keller decided after more than two decades. He finished second version of Henry's brave but pessimistic trip with Henry's success and a happy love story. Thus, exactly what Henry had been dead for 24 years but in the end Keller's readers make up their minds that the author only by resurrection and happiness.
Abused girl Meretlein, which prefaces the story of Heinrich's main story and what gets buried alive: Most of the children in the literature Keller's death gave rise to one of the characters. I literally rise from the dead, he is running around "after plenty of kids who want to catch the dead", and finally on a Chinese village from one dead-fall Last minute wreaks.

King's "Misery" is also with the characters die and then an author's duty towards his fans with the power of God to let live.
I understand perfectly well for Paul writing "Misery's Return" Misery's death at the end of their hijackers "Misery's Child" is sought after so much anger towards him. Annie is to please and to avoid his own death, he returns to the world of suffering. In a dramatic, he rises from his grave.

Nominated for the World Fantasy Award for Best Novel, "suffering", a film and a Broadway play called, was also a wider public audience to the resurrection of this remarkable story.
Now one really can not die when it has not completed his mission in life. Death is sent back. At least, in the case of the Rings Tolkien's 'Lord'.

Then she went and her colleagues believe that the dead.
