Jesus' resurrection is a time for setting earthquakes shaking in the soul. The seven excellent Easter messages in this book will help to make that happen in your congregation. Leonard Budd and Roger Talbott have combined well-crafted stories, most of them imaginative fiction pieces, with solid exposition of texts from Old and New Testaments. These messages will provide preaching resources for the entire Easter season. Two additional resources expand the usefulness of this volume: *Prayers and readings for each Sunday follow each message. *There are study/discussion questions for an adult forum group which can assemble following worship, or in the week following, to discuss the message. Each set of questions is preceded by ""group-builder"" get-acquainted and growth exercises. Leonard H. Budd is pastor of Lakewood United Methodist church in a suburb of Cleveland, Ohio. Roger G. Talbott is a United Methodist pastor in North Madison, Ohio.
