Sunday Book Club: Almost Easter

April 9, 2017 Sunday Book Club 18

It’s crazy but true – Easter is next Sunday!

Next week, I’m going to take the day off from the blog so today I want to talk about your favorite Easter season reads – both fiction and nonfiction.

One of my hands-down, no contest faves in fiction is The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis. The stone tablet scenes … be still my heart.

As far as nonfiction goes, my very fave is still He Still Moves Stones by Max Lucado. I re-read it every couple of years because it’s that good.

Ok. Now it’s your turn. What are some of your fave Easter season reads – the books that help you see Jesus, His death and resurrection with fresh eyes?

    I love this question, Carrie, and might try to do a similar post if I have time this week. For nonfiction, He Still Moves Stones is great. Anything Lucado writes, in fact. One of my favorite nonfiction that quickly comes to mind, because I enjoy apologetics, is The Case for Christ by Lee Strobel.

    Now for fiction, I go all the way back to my high school/college years in the late 60s when my mom, who loved long novels and hooked me on reading, introduced me to biblical fiction writers Lloyd C. Douglas and Taylor Caldwell. The Robe (Douglas) was moving and made me wonder if I could ever die for my faith. Caldwell wrote lots of wonderful books, but it was Dear and Glorious Physician (the story of Luke) that made me see Jesus in such a real way. These classic authors are wonderful.

    It is not specific to the resurrection, but Francine Rivers’ Redeeming Love sure does paint a beautiful picture of sacrificial love.

    Carrie – great picks! I just finished The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe (again). Great book! I am starting Max’s book today! I love Max and his books. He is a great teacher. He is one of the pastor’s at our church. ?

    I also read Liz Curtis Higgs newest, The Women of Easter, which I really enjoyed. There was a part in there about Lazarus’ death and how it affected Jesus that just really spoke to me and made me re-see the entire story.

    I’m going to have to get Max’s book, especially since I don’t have one I re-read every Easter. But I do love re-watching Jesus of Nazareth every year.

    The Lady and the Lionheart by Joanne Bischof has such a beautiful picture of Christ’s sacrifice for us it moved me to tears. Weeping actually, in such thankfulness for His love for us.
