What would happen if you really lived knowing Jesus Christ is alive? After Jesus died, he spent the next forty days strolling through the Middle East, giving hope, truth, and encouragement to hundreds of friends. In this fascinating book of stories, Jo Kadlecek explores the time Jesus spent on earth after his resurrection from the dead. She serves as a guide through each story, revealing what happens when once desperate and fearful friends encounter the risen Lord. Their lives--and all of history--were changed for good. And she invites you to enter the story, discovering anew how every part of your life can be transformed by the unprecedented truth of the once dead, now living Jesus. "A welcome reminder that Jesus meets us in our desperation--whether grief, fear, pain, confusion, skepticism, passion, or waiting--and we need not live and walk around as if God is dead. Thoughtful and probing questions at the end of each chapter are perfect for devotional reflection and small group sharing."--Jeff Schuliger, minister of small groups, Park Street Church, Boston "Be filled with awe reading about ordinary people whose lives Jesus transformed, and be convicted about the ways your day-to-day life would be drastically altered if you fully embraced the truth, power, and hope of the resurrected Jesus."--Pamela Brown-Peterside, fellowship group director, Redeemer Presbyterian Church, New York City Jo Kadlecek is a journalist, author, and retreat and conference teacher. She is the senior writer in the office of college communications at Gordon College, where she is also on the communication arts faculty. She is the author of thirteen books, including Desperate Women of the Bible. Learn more about her writing at www.lamppostmedia.net.

Why did Jesus spend forty days on earth after his death when he could have returned home to the majesty of heaven? And out of all the people on the planet at that time who could have helped him get a major religious movement off the ground, why did he seek out those who had run the other way when he was crucified? In this fascinating book, Jo Kadlecek shows readers how the disciples who saw Jesus after his death were changed from sometimes bumbling scaredy-cats to pillars of the Christian faith. She invites readers to experience their own transformation in every part of life--relationships, jobs, finances, family, and more--as they come to a new understanding and appreciation of the basis of the faith: the bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ.
