The Easter Stories
Full Product Description
This absorbing volume, which includes some of the authorís own poetry and reflective pieces, suggests that in entering into the resurrection stories from the Gospels, we step outside time and place into a strange and wonderful world where death no longer holds sway. Here we meet a wounded God, scarred with the marks of crucifixion - a risen Christ, in whom God once more becomes familiar. And through the wonderful intimacy we are able to enjoy with this truly close yet ever mysterious God, we gain the energy and courage to strive to establish his topsy-turvy kingdom on this, his own dear earth.
"The Book of Books (Lion): Trevor Dennisís retelling of the Bible is exceptional in its range, from the mysterious and poetic to the down-to-earth and funny . . . [his skill] as a storyteller . . . is undeniable."

The Easter StoriesMary Austin, via The Good Book Stall
As in the companion to the volume The Christmas Stories published a few months ago Trevor Dennis combines his Biblical scholarship with the story teller’s skill to bring the resurrection stories alive for us! As a story teller himself, he looks at the stories the gospel writers tell to somehow impart the mystery of the events of the first Easter Day. He shows how familiar stories are dripping with theological imagery and meaning; the veil of the temple torn in two, the presence of Jesus when his followers break bread; the transformation that takes place in their lives through encounter with the risen Christ. As always, an excellent book of the standard we have come to expect from Trevor Dennis; one to read at Easter time or at any time that draws us closer to the risen Christ.
