Marty Machowski’s Darkest Night Brightest Day shows families how Easter morning turned the world upside down and right side up.
Start a new Easter season tradition with your family by reading this beautifully illustrated “upside down” book that includes fourteen Bible stories for Passion and Easter weeks.
Begin on Palm Sunday with the first side, Darkest Night, which has seven stories that recount the events of Passion week, ending with Christ’s crucifixion and burial.
Flip the book over on Easter morning and continue by reading Brightest Day, featuring seven more stories that progress from Christ’s resurrection to his ascension and Pentecost.
This format would also work for churches, starting from the 1st Sunday in Lent and going right through to Pentecost Sunday, taking one story per week.
Machowski weaves the four Gospel accounts together into one harmonized story and provides questions for family discussion. Children are sure to remember the contrast between the darkness at the death of our Lord and the light-filled events from Christ’s resurrection onward.
· This beautiful hardback book, illustrated by Phil Schorr, is sure to become a treasuredfamily favorite to be used every Easter.
· Designed for families to read one story each day for two weeks, beginning Palm Sunday.
· Targeted to families with preschool and grade school children but can used in family devotionals with teens as well.
