“Our Great Rescuer”
How can you experience the Easter story with your children? In A Jesus Easter, Barbara Reoach helps you explore God’s amazing rescue plan. The first 10 days take you through the Old Testament, explaining the background and why Jesus had to come. Days 11-30 are about the Gospel and walk you alongside the life of Jesus.
Explore, Explain, Engage, and Enter In
This is an Easter workbook that can be used for families during Lent. Made for ages 3 - 12, it is adaptable to fit the needs of your family. Each day has four parts: Explore, Explain, Engage, and Enter in. To summarize each day, Reoach writes a simple true statement about Jesus. Family journaling space is also included.
What I love most about this book is how reading the Bible passage together as a family is the key activity. The explanation sections are brief, but will help you find your focus in the Biblical text. And the engagement questions are simple, yet personal, allowing you to truly reflect on Scripture.
Our Great Rescuer
What I most appreciated about this book was how it shows what Jesus gives us by his death and resurrection. For instance, Jesus gives us light and life, peace, life with him, and forgiveness. While we often think of Christmas as a time for giving presents, this book shows that Jesus gives us gifts during Easter. This is a wonderful way to read God’s Word.
This book is an excellent resource for families. Work through it during your family devotions, or give it to your older children to use during their own personal quiet times. With activities and questions to help keep you engaged, you will experience Easter and give worship to our great Rescuer.
I received a media copy of A Jesus Easter and this is my honest review.
