Sorry if that seems a bit over-exuberant, but I’m feelin’ pretty spiffy. My new ebook, Easter: Beyond the Bunny is up at Amazon and ready for you to procure and peruse. For the next 48 hours (that would be until Wednesday the 6th at 11:59 P.M.) it is absolutely free! Just click here, download, and enjoy.
What? You want to know what the book is about? My, but you are a discriminating shopper. Let me give you a bit of the introduction from the book—maybe it’ll give you a feel for the thing.
Easter is not, traditionally, a manly holiday. You think Easter, you think colored eggs, baskets full of fake grass, baby chicks, a bonnet with frills upon it, and, of course, fluffy Mr. Bunny.
What could there possibly be in Easter for the Manly Man? How does the Dad Man lead his family through it, except by gritting his teeth, planting a cheesy grin on his face, and donning pastel for the one and only time during the year?
Oh, my friend, have I got news for you…
You see, pop culture presents us with a picture of Easter that is pathetic. Seriously, what man worth his salt would have anything to do with the fluffy, froo-froo chocolate-egg world of American Easter?
O.K., the chocolate eggs are really, really good. Particularly the Cadbury eggs. Everything else has got to go.
What I’m trying to do with this book is give dads out there a tool that they can use to lead their families through this holiday season. Frankly, too often men are passive when it comes to spiritual leadership in the family, yet God has given the role to us as a privilege and a duty. But how should he lead? I mean, what are you supposed to do?
Easter: Beyond the Bunny provides eight days (starting Palm Sunday and culminating on Easter) of Old Testament prophecies about the Messiah (I even explain what the word means), New Testament scriptures showing how those prophecies were fulfilled, and questions that Dad (or Mom, or anyone) can use to lead discussions about Easter. It’s all designed to make you the Family Devotions Master. There are also activities to keep the little ones involved, and recipes for a simple Easter brunch—anyone can be a kitchen hero. And did I mention that it’s free for the next two days?
And you’re waiting because…
