“During Lent it’s tempting to hurry toward Easter morning, eager to declare, ‘He is risen!’ Yes, He certainly is. But reminding ourselves what came before His glorious victory over death is how we remain humbled by His sacrifice and grateful for His mercy.”
This line perfectly describes why you should read the book The Women of Easter by Liz Curtis Higgs.
The beautiful narrative of Easter is woven together with scripture and viewed through the eyes of Mary of Bethany, Mary of Nazareth, and Mary Magdalene.
Walk through the gospels beside women serving Jesus with no reservations to what the world might think. These women will inspire, encourage, and remind you of what living for Christ looks like.
I found myself opening my Bible and taking notes as Women of Easter was laying right beside it, and Liz guided me through the final days of Christ.
I can think of no better way to prepare one’s heart during Lent, than experiencing what this book offers.
I cried at the beauty of selflessness. Was angered at the acts of betrayed. Then became humbled at the realization that I am a sinner whom Christ died for.
A book for women of all ages, get ready to experience Easter in a whole new light. It will not take you long to read because you will not want to put it down.
I have already recommended this read to other women, but wanted to share this exceptional plot, taken straight from the Word, with you!
Friends, you will not be disappointed as Liz takes you to the scenes of humbleness and sacrifice with women we love, and a Savior who loves us more than we can ever imagine.
