Celebrating a Christ-Centered Easter: Seven Traditions to Lead Us Closer to the Savior...Review

About the book:
Discover how the personal experiences of people who were closest to the Savior during the final week of His life can change the way your family celebrates Easter. Learn the meaning behind the wheat baskets, the forget knot, the red egg, and other traditions that will help Easter become a “High Holy Day” in your heart and in your home.

Celebrating a Christ-Centered Easter offers hope for an Easter filled with the Spirit of Christ as we offer our finest to Him in deepest gratitude for His sacrifice. Return to the spiritual roots of this holy celebration with this beautiful gift book that will help bring you and your family closer to Jesus Christ.

So much of the world's focus on Easter is chocolate and eggs and bunnies. But, in the Christian world, Easter is celebrated because it is a time to remember that Jesus Christ was crucified and resurrected. This is a beautiful little gem. Its purpose is to help you draw closer to Jesus Christ.

For many who reflect on Jesus' life during his final week, the focus is on each day and what happened to Him. This book, instead, reflects on the people who were closest to Him during that time. Mary and Martha and the miracle of Lazarus; Joseph and Nicodemus, Thomas, and others. There are seven biblical experiences with insights as to how those scriptural accounts can strengthen you as well as an activity or tradition you can incorporate into your own holy week.

It's a short, easy read; it could be divided into 7 days or 7 weeks and it is perfect for either an individual or for a family to share and discuss together.  It stands alone, but is designed to be a companion to Celebrating a Christ-Centered Christmas: Seven Traditions to Lead Us Closer to the Savior.

  1. Hi, I just noticed your review of this book I'm considering on Amazon, and also noticed your rating scale, which is about like mine. For me a 4 star book is truly wonderful and memorable; 5 stars is about as rare as they get! Peace and hope, Leah
