Daughter’s new dress, check. Picture with the bunny, check.
Still needing a few things for the basket, so I drop into the local bookstore and browse through the cute rabbit displays, making my way to the section containing the “true meaning of Easter” selection. Wait. These books seem vaguely familiar to the clever bunny tales I was just reading in the secular section. Oh I see now, the big fluffy rabbit has been replaced by Jesus, hence the “religious” title.
It seems few children’s books plunge headfirst into the actual significance of Good Friday and Easter, at least with much depth. (Or charm!) Thankfully, some truly solid theologians grasp the complex ways of God and yet, still know how to draw a child into the wonder of the gospel. This week, we highlight a few great books which deal with the heartbeat of this season, Jesus’s death and resurrection.
And guess what? We’re giving away one book every day this week. So leave a comment for a chance to win today’s book. Come back tomorrow for a different book which talks about the richness of the season for another chance to win!
Monday’s Book Giveaway
The Poison Cup, by R.C. Sproul
This book uses allegory to illustrate the Christian’s understanding that Christ took God’s wrath in their place. Through compelling graphics, Sproul creates a fairy tale involving a King’s son drinking the people’s poisoned water, which kills him, but ultimately saves them.
