The two most significant events in human history are the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. And no one can uncover their meaning for today quite like Charles Swindoll. From the poignant interactions of The Last Supper, through the despairing events of Gethsemane and the seven last words of Jesus on the Cross, Dr. Swindoll challenges readers with a new perspective on the atoning work of Christ. And in Part Two of this inspirational work, the secret of how the resurrection of Jesus enables Christians to live triumphantly is revealed in a clear yet surprising way.
