Peter's First Easter (First Edition)
Leave it to Walter Wangerin to convey the significance of Christ's death and resurrection in a way that is accessible to children. Doing for children what The Book of God did for adults, Wangerin tells the story of Peter and the stirring events that rocked his life at the time of Jesus' arrest and crucifixion.
With simple, vivid prose, the author shows children ages 4-8 the wonder of God's forgiveness. Peter's First Easter probes human feelings, especially those of Peter. Children will sense Peter's deep love for his Lord, his shame at betraying him, his desolation at Jesus's death, and his joy when Christ rises from the dead and again beckons him, Follow me. They will understand the depth of friendship between Peter and his Savior.
Lavishly illustrated by Tim Ladwig, this companion volume to the best-selling Mary's First Christmas is ideal for parents and grandparents to read aloud to the children they love. Sharing this poignant book at Easter brings the true meaning vibrantly alive and builds a family tradition with eternal significance.
This is a first edition hardcover copy of Walter Wangerin's 2000 children's book Peter's First Easter.
