Darkest Night, Brightest Day: This colorfully illustrated family devotional will help you and your children reflect on the events we remember at Easter, from Jesus' triumphant entry into Jerusalem through to Pentecost. Each reading ends with a few questions to discuss with your family.
All fourteen daily readings in Darkest Night, Brightest Day are drawn directly from the Gospels. The unique design of this devotional tells the salvation story by visually dividing the historical events into two parts. The first half of the book is titled “Darkest Night,” and it records the last week of Jesus’ life.
To read the second half of the book, you flip the book over to continue with “Brightest Day.” The readings in this half of the book detail Christ’s resurrection, His visit with the disciples on the road to Emmaus, Christ’s ascension, and, finally, the mighty rush of wind that accompanied the coming of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost. The clever visual reversal of the book will help children see how the world was turned upside down when Christ rose from the dead.
With a Mighty Triumph: In preparation for Easter, revisit what Paul affirms in 1 Corinthians 15—that the resurrection of Jesus is not only true and historically verifiable but also assurance that all who trust in Christ will be raised from the dead in the new creation.
It also considers five descriptions of what life would be like if Christ had not risen from the dead, reminding us why His resurrection should shape everything about our Christian life—our worship, the peace we experience, and the certainty we have about our own resurrection.
With a Mighty Triumph will carefully lead you through Paul’s logic, rich theology, and practical applications for daily living life.
Here in this stirring call to 'Remember Jesus Christ, risen from the dead', we find a tonic for the soul.—Alistair Begg
