Product Description

Jesus' death and resurrection proved to be the turning point in world history—with implications still being unraveled. Combine that with Kalas's famous "back side" approach, which starts from some unusual angle or a minor character's viewpoint, and our staid, comfortable lifestyle is soon put in jeopardy. Kala's creative approach both clarifies basic teacnings and introduces new possibillities of meaning. Enriched with contemporary illustrations and personal experineces, this volume will provide new perspectives on Easter.

Enriched with contemporary illustrations and personal experiences, this volume will provide new perspectives on Easter. Chapter titles and Scriptures include: “Why We Need Easter” (Genesis 3:1-7, 22-24); “Easter from an Ash Heap” (Job 19:13-27); “Easter for the Disillusioned” (Ecclesiastes 2:14-26); “Ezekiel Celebrates Easter” (Ezekiel 37:1-10); “Easter Is a Love Story” (John 20:1-18); “Late for Easter” (1 Corinthians 15:1-11); and “Forever Easter” (Revelation 21:1-4).
