Why did Jesus spend forty days on earth after his death when he could have returned home to the majesty of heaven? And out of all the people on the planet at that time who could have helped him get a major religious movement off the ground, why did he seek out those who had run the other way when he was crucified? In this fascinating book, Jo Kadlecek shows readers how the disciples who saw Jesus after his death were changed from sometimes bumbling scaredy-cats to pillars of the Christian faith. She invites readers to experience their own transformation in every part of life--relationships, jobs, finances, family, and more--as they come to a new understanding and appreciation of the basis of the faith: the bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ.
