Bunnies and baskets may dominate the public's thoughts on Easter, but Christians know the day carries a far deeper meaning. Here Richard Abanes examines different aspects of this holy day, including its origin in "the old, rugged cross," what Lent is for, how Christians celebrate Easter worldwide, and where traditions grew from in history. While jelly beans fill children's fancies, Abanes reestablishes the true center of Easter. Short and celebratory, THE HEART OF EASTER is a quick read sure to please and inform Christians everywhere.
