Publisher Age Recommendation: 4+
Orthodox Bookstore Age Recommendation: 8-12 years
Pascha itself is the day of sheer joy. Life has blossomed forth from the tomb, creation is made new, the doors of the Kingdom are opened wide. So, the Resurrection is the core of the Christian Life. Only because Christ is risen can we forgive one another, be healed of all our diseases of soul and body, and rise to the Life God intends for us—His own Life, of which we can partake because Christ has fully partaken of our own. Little books for little hands. 24 pages each.
