Product DescriptionThe Story of Easter is the Easter story told with outstanding illustrations and text young people can easily understand. Christ's resurrection is the primary focus of this children's book and outlays the chronology and significance of events from Palm (Passion) Sunday through Easter morning. The core message of The Story of Easter is to teach God's grace and that it is Jesus' suffering and death on our behalf that we are forgiven and enter into eternal life. Our own efforts fail in accomplishing this; only through God's plan are we graced. This full story is presented in this meaningful volume.
Children and even older family members learn or have their understanding of Jesus' last days on earth refreshed. The luscious watercolor illustrations by John Haysom make all the story elements in The Story of Easter come alive. You feel like you have traveled back in time to be a real participant in this historical event. The teachings, healings, the return to Jerusalem and all that led up to Christ's trial, humiliation, and crucifixion are artfully communicated to ignite the imagination. Reading The Story of Easter prepares a family for Easter.
