About This Book

One of the few titles for adults on the Easter holiday, this beautiful gift book tells the story of Jesus from Crucifixion to Resurrection in short chapters, illustrated with line art, told in the first-person narrative of seven disciples. Each section offers the author’s commentary on the lessons learned from each disciple and suggests simple traditions to follow to remember how implementing the teachings of the Easter holiday can vastly enrich your life today.


“Perhaps as you feel Easter approaching you find yourself wishing you could do things differently. Maybe you hope to find a way to prepare more fully for the sacred celebration ahead. Recently, I was talking with a friend about her traditions and worship services surrounding this holiday. She referred to Easter as her “high holiday.” I pondered her sentiment and knew I wanted Easter to become a high holiday in my life and in my home. I was reminded that Jewish tradition sets aside a certain number of days each year for celebrating. They refer to these days as “High Holidays” or “High Holy Days.” In Hebrew the term is Yamim Noraim, which means “Days of Awe.” That is my heart’s desire: I want the days surrounding Easter to become days of awe–high holy days.Most Easter books center on events, on what happened each day of the last week of the Savior’s life. This book focuses on the people who were closest to the Savior and spent precious time with Him during the last weeks of His mortal ministry. Instead of events, this book is driven by experiences–one-on-one, personal experiences with Jesus Christ.”
