Easter Ideas (3): a book

Brandon and I have been reading this book to prepare for Easter - Jesus, Keep Me Near the Cross, by Nancy Guthrie.

Though it's pretty in-depth, it is really good and really helps me think on the true meaning of Easter (the cross and the resurrection of Jesus, and the life offered us by God through Him).  The authors are both new and ones that have been around for hundreds of years - Jonathan Edwards, Saint Augustine, John Piper, Charles Spurgeon, Tim Keller and many more. 

There is also a Christmas one for advent.  They are both edited by Nancy Guthrie.  Easter and Christmas are such big holidays for us as believers, so I love anything that helps us focus on the true meaning!
