James Harnish invites us to explore how Jesus' resurrection shifts our assumptions about ourselves and God. Each week of this six-week Lenten study contains five readings, a prayer focus, a hymn of the week, and suggestions for small-group interaction.
"The earthshaking promise of Easter is that God has not forsaken any of us," Harnish writes. "The risen Christ will meet us along the confused, chaotic, fearful paths of our lives and speak the same words the women hear at the tomb, 'Do not be afraid.'" Join Harnish in this energizing study that will inspire you to live as a more faithful disciple of Jesus Christ.

Like a news reporter announcing breaking news, Matthew reports that on the first Easter morning, a great earthquake shook the earth. An angel descended from heaven, rolled back the stone from the entrance to Jesus tomb, and sat on the stone.
This is the second earthquake recorded in the Gospel of Matthew. The first one took place on Friday, when the noonday sky turned black and Jesus died. Matthew says, "The earth shook, and the rocks were split."
In Easter Earthquake, James Harnish invites us to place Easter at the center of our Lenten journey. This study explores how Christs resurrection shakes some of our most basic assumptions about ourselves and God. Harnish reverses the usual focus of Lenten studies by starting at the empty tomb and seeing the entire journey in light of the resurrection. This different perspective on the passion can bring fresh energy into our lives as followers of Christ.
