The Most Exciting and Eventful Week in History
The Tragedy and Triumph that Shook the World and Transformed Humanity
The Most Exciting and Eventful Week in History looks at the events of Holy Week in a fresh, new light. More than a Sunday-to-Sunday account of what happened in those dramatic days, this book draws on the historical Biblical record and Christ’s own words to paint a vivid picture of Jesus’ actions leading up to his trial and crucifixion. The darkness and despair of the necessary act of sacrifice is felt, and the ultimate triumph of the resurrection is proclaimed and explained. In eight exciting and eventful days, one Man changed the world and transformed humanity forever. This book is a fresh look at the most important week in the history of the world.
The Unsung Heroes of Easter
Because of the fast-moving, epic events of Holy Week, we often miss the seemingly insignificant characters of the Easter story. Only a verse or two is dedicated to their actions in the Biblical record, and we do not know that much more about them from extra-biblical records. But, as in all vast, sweeping historical events, little-known individuals carry out deeds of kindness, love, and bravery. They may only get a footnote in history, but their actions echo down to us today.
This book tells the stories of eight people whose lives were touched by Christ’s journey to the cross. You will be blessed, encouraged, and inspired by the lives of mortal men and women caught up in the tumult of the most tragic and triumphant week in history.

Easter According to the Apostles’ Creed
If you have ever attended a Lutheran, Anglican, Methodist, or Presbyterian church, you may have heard something similar to the words which are referred to as the Apostles’ Creed.Now, Baptists (which I consider myself to be), as a rule, do not subscribe to any creed. Coming out of the Protestant Reformation, Baptists decided that, unlike other Protestant denominations, they would be non-creedal. Baptists state that”the final authority for faith and practice is the Bible, not words about the Bible.” However, while I do not hold any creed to the level of inspired Scripture, I believe that there are some elements from other parts of the church that are goodthat we should at least be aware of and that we can learn from.The Apostles’ Creed is one of those things.
