Why Easter answers the question why Jesus died for our sins. A gospel centered devotion for families that starts with Jesus raising Lazarus from the dead to the great commission. The format starts with scripture, commentary, truth of the scripture, questions to discuss, memorize scripture, and the words of several hymns that are discussed as well. The illustrations are colorful and engaging for any child and will capture their hearts for the truth.

I was delighted that the trinity was apparent in this devotion as well. How each part of the trinity is in the story of Easter can be skipped over instead of celebrated. The strength of this devotion was the emphasis on what the nation of Israel was looking for in a Messiah and in doing so missed a spiritual need that we all have. We need a savior and a King. Easter reminds us that we have both, that Jesus saved us from our sins and ruled over death that we may experience Eden.
