Hardcover – Feb 15 2004 by Max Lucado (Author)
How would you respond if you had watched Jesus die and rise again?

The soldier’s search for answers about Jesus will resonate with children and adults alike. Accompanied by striking full-color illustrations, Lucado’s story powerfully shows Christ’s power to impact people’s lives.
From Publishers Weekly
With text taken from Lucado's book Tell Me the Story, this repackaged illustrated gift book is intended as an Easter yarn for all ages. The story is told from the point of view of a Roman soldier assigned to guard Jesus' tomb after his burial. He and his companion think this is going to be an easy assignment, and actually doze off while on duty, only to awaken violently as an earthquake rocks the ground beneath the tomb. After the stone at the entrance miraculously rolls away, the soldiers are temporarily blinded by a sudden roar of light emanating from the tomb. After the tumult, one of the soldiers seeks out Jesus' companions to discover the truth about the risen man's life and mission. The soldier's story is illustrated with full-color interior art adapted from the film Resurrection.
