Reviewed by Anne Boiling for Readers' Favorite

Resurrection is the retelling of the greatest story ever told. It is the tale of Jesus Christ beginning when he was praying in the garden through his resurrection. Author Terry Dick retells the story that so many of us heard or read countless times and yet never truly comprehended the gist of the story.

When I think back on the sky going dark, the earthquake, and the veil tearing, it seems obvious that anyone there would know He is the son of God; and yet, people still refuse to believe. The author states he believes the time of tribulation is drawing near. I think he is right.

Dick does an excellent job in bringing the story to life. His style and presentation is simplistic, easy to understand, and interesting. He tells the tale in a contemporary manner without tarnishing the meaning. I'm not sure I have ever considered what was going on in hell while Christ was there. I think that Terry Dick's thesis is probably true. I am sure Satan was arrogant, pleased with himself, and cruel. He still is today. I am also sure the angels wanted to rescue Christ, but they knew God had a plan. Dick explained why Christ had to be crucified. He explained the term paradise. He demonstrated why the connection between God and Christ was temporarily severed. I was surprised he did not mention the dead arising from the graves.

This book is not long, a mere 120 pages. It may be small, but it a powerful story.
