There are several other things that I love about this book. This book provides an excellent explanation of a Christian tradition for both children and adults. This book also includes a discussion guide at the end which allows you to delve deeper into the concepts presented. The discussion guide also includes a scripture reference guide. After reading this book, both children and adults will be able to answer the question “Why We Celebrate Easter?”
In "Why Do We Celebrate Easter" we see the picture of God's plan for the redemption of man from the beginning to the end. This beautifully illustrated book emphasizes the sovereignty of God in world history. For young children, who are easily captivated by the dramatic events of the crucifixion and resurrection (and understandably so) it's awesome that the author has added constant reminders of how God's sovereignty was at work in every step, " . . . and this was part of God's plan." In a world that wants to paint our Heavenly Father as an indulgent grandfather who winks at "little" sins and who is devastated, but not in control of world catastrophes, this is a breath of fresh air. While the events of world history have been devastating, it's important that our children learn to trust in our sovereign and omnipotent God. It's all part of His plan. Out of love, He created us. In His sovereignty, He knew that we would sin. As our righteous judge He knew that our sin required punishment. His loving plan satisfied His justice and made a way for us to spend eternity with Him. His plan was named Jesus.
What a blessing to have this concise and beautiful version of God's plan in the form of a book that speaks to the minds of our little ones!
Not only is this book excellent for our little ones, it's an excellent explanation for adults, parents, grandparents, extended family, and would be an excellent gift for a new Christian. I wish this book was around when my kids were little, but my teenagers now have read and love it. I look forward to them having this book to read to their children, and I look forward to eventually reading it to my grandchildren. The most important legacy I can leave for my children is knowledge of the truth of the Gospel. This book should be required reading for that reason!
