This book is a wonderful gift for children, families, and friends. Written by best-selling author and historian Paul Maier, The Very First Easter returns the sacred focus to the true Easter story that is often missing in literature for the young. It examines the last days of Jesus on earth, His death, and resurrection, viewing them in both scriptural and secular contexts. Highlights the historicity of the biblical account. Beautifully illustrated by Francisco Ordaz, this hardbound book is ideal for children ages 5-10.
