Easter is not about mauve hats nor chocolate Easter bunnies. What it is about is joy -- the joy (and therefore hope) of the resurrection from death of the Lord Jesus Christ. The thought behind this book was to gather stories related to Easter's message and blend them with some particularly piercing sermons given on Easter Day when perhaps some inspiration might have seeped through the cobblestones of society's day-to-day clatter. And surely life, society and daily thinking have changed immensely during the last 20 centuries, 20 years and perhaps even 20 minutes. Yet, if one reads the biblical texts, the overriding concerns of the people of that time do not differ much from our own. Jesus Christ's resurrection from death brought about a large-scale change in life's equation, however. The message is not hard to understand even in today's world. It is hoped that this modest book will remind readers of what they should already know.
