Road to the Resurrection: Explore and Share the Miracle of Easter - (Paperback)
By Greg Laurie
Greg Laurie has a worldwide ministry as a pastor, evangelist, media contributor and author of over 40 books. In "Road to the Resurrection," Greg seeks to broaden readers' understanding of the sacrifice of Jesus, deepen the Easter experience, draw readers closer to the risen Jesus and prompt them to worship.
In Mark chapter 14, we see that while others failed to understand the meaning of Christ's words, a woman with an expensive alabaster jar of perfume was listening. She allowed his words to penetrate her mind and to break her heart. That broken heart led to a broken jar, and the fragrance of her worship filled the house. It is apparent that this woman measured the perfume's value against the forthcoming sacrifice of her Savior – a lifetime of love poured out in the space of a few hours on the cross.
That is what Easter is about – the love of God, a love that endured pain, ridicule, anguish and death for the sake of all of us. And what should our response be? Worship, pure unadulterated worship.
"Road to the Resurrection" provides a guidebook to the facts and circumstances surrounding the crucifixion and resurrection of Christ. The reader will examine the people, places and timeline of that first Easter. But more than that, the reader will delve into the prophecies of those events, given hundreds of years prior, as well what happened after Christ rose from the dead.
