A message from Roy Crowne, Executive Director of HOPE
Please find below information on the Easter resource which we are thrilled to be working with CV and Life Explored to offer churches a book, a 4-minute film and an explorers' course to use as we make Jesus known. The Talking Jesus research (talkingjesus.org) shows that four in ten people in the UK don't know if Jesus was a real person. Use Who Do You Say I Am? and make your Easter services great guest services this year, helping people to discover who Jesus is, why he died and what his resurrection means for us today.
The new website www.easterhope.org.uk offers the gift book and a free 4-minute film, which explore the question Jesus Christ asked 2,000 years ago: Who Do You Say I Am? Plus there's a short course to help people find what makes us truly happy.
A gift to give
Who Do You Say I Am? looks at evidence and Christian experience to help people find out about Jesus. This beautifully produced, large format paperback, takes readers on a journey of discovery with interviews, testimonies and quotes from the eye-witness accounts in the Gospels. A pack of 10 costs £11.50 (plus p&p). Order copies to give away at your Easter services this year and start a conversation about Jesus. Click here.
A film to show
The book Who do you say I am? is accompanied by a 4-minute film that asks the same question Jesus asked his disciples: 'Who do you say I am?' Interviews with an astrophysicist, a theologian and an art historian are included alongside footage shot in the Middle East in the places Jesus lived. Download the film to show at your Easter services. Click here.
A course to explore
Life Explored is a 7-part series featuring a combination of short films, shot around the world. The course asks the question 'What makes you happy?' and points to Jesus as the one person who can satisfy our deepest desires for happiness.
You can download a free demo of the course, with three episodes from the 7-part series. There is also a free handbook and leaders' handbook that you can use to help guide you.
