What an encouraging little book! In little over half an hour, Paul Williams will come alongside you, explain the gospel to you and make you wonder why you haven’t accepted Jesus sooner.

‘Easter: The Greatest News’ is for people who are hurting, people who are sceptical, people who have never heard of Jesus, and people who think Christians are a bunch of straight-laced weirdos. No prior knowledge of the church or the Bible is necessary – Paul explains everything in easy terms. But the truth he’s offering is wonderful! Jesus came, he showed himself to be God, he loved us enough to die on the cross and he came back to life again.

This book seeks to share with the reader the uplifting joy of Jesus’ return to life, and the generosity of his death for us. It is conversational and brief, but also friendly and open. It acknowledges the pain the coronavirus pandemic has caused, but in a way that will age well and which allows God’s love the shine through. I was particularly struck by the section on ‘living forever’, which makes a very important point about the life we receive from Jesus being like our ‘best day ever’, not just more of the same daily grind!

Perfect for Easter giveaways and community events.
