This is the basic story of the life and death and resurrection of Jesus that became the Christian holiday of Easter. It covers the latter part of his life when he attracted a following as he taught about the love of God and then was betrayed to the Romans. Although the book discusses the crucifixion, there is no graphic text or illustration depicting this event. After the events of the death and resurrection are retold, the author goes on to explain how the holy day that became Easter got its name and discusses some of the practices and traditions that are part of the holiday in different places, including intersting information about the custom of decorating Easter eggs. This is a well told, informative look at the most holy of Christian holidays.
