Six Hours One Friday--Anchoring to the Cross (232.9 Luc)
They were the most critical hours in history. For during those six hours on that Friday, God embedded in the earth anchors sturdy enough to withstand any storm -- even the ones Christians face today. In his book, Six Hours One Friday -- Anchoring to the Cross, Max Lucado once again takes us to the foot of the cross where we find hope for life’s tough issues. In the cross we find purpose, forgiveness, and rest. “If the claims of the cross are true, then there is an anchor point for our futility, amnesty for the guilty, and life for the dying. And there is rest. Rest for the weary.”
The Donkey That No One Could Ride (E Des)
“... You will see a young donkey tied there that no one has ever ridden.”
Bestselling author Anthony DeStefano begins his creative telling of the beloved Bible story of Christ’s triumphant entry by introducing the young donkey who has yet to realize his important mission. The lowly creature believes he can do nothing noble, but that’s before he meets the Master.
Richard Cowdrey’s colorful illustrations pair beautifully with Anthony’s charming rhymes. Together, they bring this timeless story of the donkey who carries Jesus into Jerusalem to a joyful finish. While especially appropriate as an Easter reading, this year-round story is for all time and for young and old alike.
