Sunday Snippet: The Cross for Today… A GiveAway.

March 22nd, 2011 · 18 Comments

Time for another Giveaway!!! We are heading for Easter and getting out our list of Se7en Things to do Before Easter. This weeks book is all about preparing your heart for Easter… Easter passes by each year and we tell our kids all about Easter but sometimes I need to stop and think about Easter and the cross for myself. Not just a charm to be worn on a necklace, what is the cross and resurrection all about? Here is a book with sixteen very short, readable chapters explaining God’s plan for the cross from the beginning of time.

The book covers three main areas:

  1. The prophecies of the Old Testament: God’s intricate creation and a need for the cross right from the start. What has the cross got to do with the Day of Atonement and the Passover?
  2. The New Testament reality: You can read all about the crucifixion in the gospels and we are slowly reading our way through Matthew 26, 27 and 28 at breakfast time.
  3. And the cross for us today: What about today, how is the cross relevant to us today? What does it matter that Jesus dies on the cross and then rose again three days later?

This book is an interesting read and would make a great Bible Study for yourself and give you lots to talk about with your kids as we head towards Easter.

As usual I have to thank CBD, our GiveAway book suppliers for another great book.

    I would love to enter, it sounds like a great book! I am just coming back to religion, and introducing my kids to it, and I feel like I have so much catch-up to do. I am so glad I’ve started at this time of year…the easter season seems like the perfect season for change and renewal!

    I always find it hard to focus on the real story, because the world is full of chocolates and bunnies and the children are swept away by all of that – but its amazing how easy it is to keep Jesus the centre of all things when we as parents ensure that our focus is in the right place, the children follow our lead.
