Easter HOPE - Tuesday Titles

Welcome to Week 2 of more great book suggestions for you and your family to enjoy during the Easter HOPE Co-op.   If you have some family Easter favorites, we'd love to have you share them!

General Interest-

Daily Life in the Time of Jesus
by Miriam F. Vamosh / Abingdon Press

What did Jesus see when he woke up each morning? What were the city streets like? What did people wear? What did they eat? In Daily Life at the Time of Jesus, Miriam Vamosh guides pilgrims of all ages on an unforgettable tour of the Holy Land 2,000 years ago. Lavish illustrations complement down-to-earth commentary on Jesus' cultural environment, as illuminated by 50 years of archaeological research.

Benjamin's Box: A Resurrection
by Melody Carlson / Zonderkidz

This tale of a child following Jesus during Biblical times to find out who He is will teach your children lessons from the Bible. What are the treasures in Benjamin's Box? Come along with Benjamin and see. Like all boys and girls, Benjamin is very, very curious. Unlike children of today, however, Benjamin lives during the days of Christ! When Jesus comes to Jerusalem, Benjamin decides to follow Him and find out who He really is. At first, he thinks Jesus is a teacher, then a king. At last, Benjamin learns the good news--news that every child (and grown-up!) will want to share. Recommended for ages 5 to 10.

Jr/Sr High Students -

The Greatest Story Ever Told
by Fulton Oursler / Random House
First published in 1949, this classic has been read by millions. Now it's back! Oursler's account of Jesus' life---the greatest life ever lived, from incarnation to resurrection---is powerfully but simply written, and set against an accurate historical background. This is an excellent, non-threatening way to introduce the Gospel to folks who aren't yet willing to tackle the New Testament.

Don't forget to stop by and visit us each day on Facebook.  We are enjoying this Easter HOPE journey together, how about you?
