Great read for Easter by dgottreu on 3/6/13

God Is On the Cross by Dietrich Bonhoeffer is a devotional book containing reflections on Lent and Easter that would normally be read over the days from Ash Wednesday to Easter but since I do not personally celebrate Lent, I just read the entire book as I would any other book. It is a wonderful book full of insight, inspiration, and encouragement which is just as relevant for any season of the year as it is for Easter.

The book contains forty devotionals with the themes of prayerful reflections, self denial, temptation, the purpose of suffering, and the meaning of the cross. All devotionals are taken from the writings and sermons of Bonhoeffer and each day also contains pertinent scripture from the Bible. Letters from Bonhoeffer to his parents, friends, and fiancee and a few passages from other Christian writers are included in the book.

I was touched by all the devotionals but the message that touched me most was Bonhoeffer’s definition of Easter. “Easter is not about immortality but about resurrection from a death that is a real death with all its frightfulness and horrors, resurrection from a death of the body and the soul, of the whole person, resurrection by the power of God’s mighty act. This is the Easter message.” And as so many today seem to think, Easter is NOT about the Easter bunny and colored eggs. I would recommend this book to anyone who would like to delve deeper into the true meaning of Easter and what it means to the world.

This book was provided to me free by Westminster John Knox Press and Net Galley without any obligation for a positive review.
