A unique and meaningful way to celebrate the most important event in history… The Resurrection Collection / Easter Value Pack! Two DVDS and a book that, together, present fresh insights into the historical validity and significance of Christ's conquest over death.
This collection includes:
The Case for Christ DVD: Lee Strobel's blockbuster bestseller comes alive on your screen in this documentary that chronicles the reporter's journey from atheism to faith. The former legal editor of the Chicago Tribune draws upon his investigative skills to examine the historical viability and accuracy of the Gospels, along with the personal claims and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
The Case for Easter BOOK: How credible is the evidence for the resurrection? Focusing his award-winning skills as a legal journalist on history's most compelling enigma, Lee Strobel retraces the startling findings that led him from atheism to belief. Drawing on expert testimony first shared in his blockbuster book, The Case for Christ, Strobel examines: The Medical Evidence -- Was Jesus' death a sham and his resurrection a hoax? The Evidence of the Missing Body -- Was Jesus' body really absent from his tomb? The Evidence of Appearances -- Was Jesus seen alive after his death on the cross?
Metamorphosis: The Beauty and Design of Butterflies DVD: In Metamorphosis you will explore their remarkable world as few ever have before. Spectacular photography, computer animation and magnetic resonance imaging open once hidden doors to every stage of a butterfly's life-cycle. From an egg the size of a pinhead…to a magnificent flying insect. It is a transformation so incredible biologists have called it "butterfly magic."
Hank Hanegraaff, President of the Christian Research Institute had this to say about Metamorphosis:
"I'll admit I've never paid much attention to butterflies. At most, maybe I've noticed an especially pretty specimen wafting by, or spent a few minutes reflecting how amazing it is that a crawling caterpillar should become a winged wonder. But the other night, I gathered my whole family around and watched Illustra Media's brilliant DVD Metamorphosis. Not only will I never look at a butterfly the same way again, I was wholly unprepared for my own powerful emotional response to the truth about these tiny creatures.
First, of course, we were all riveted as the program recounted, with vibrant video footage and meticulous scientific detail, the whole astounding life cycle of the butterfly. I can assure you, unless you're a lepidopterist yourself, you've never imagined the mystery and majesty of God's creation as expressed in these miniature marvels - insects that actually, in a very real sense, die to be reborn as almost completely new and glorious creatures.
The evidence presented for Intelligent Design in the DVD is compelling. I was left believing the butterfly may be the single best proof in the natural world of the existence of a divine Creator. And as I watched the last few minutes of Metamorphosis, unexpectedly my heart was gripped by the thought, "It's true after all ...resurrection is a reality ...one day I will experience metamorphosis ...it's true after all!"
Now, you're probably thinking, "Hank, you already knew resurrection is a reality - you've written a whole book about it!" And that's true. Since I explored the hard evidence for Jesus' resurrection over thirty years ago, intellectually I've never doubted my own coming metamorphosis. But in that moment, watching the awe-inspiring way God has dealt so graciously and beautifully with a humble insect, the emotional reality of resurrection fluttered deeply into my soul on the wings of a butterfly." - Hank Hanegraaff - President, Christian Research Institute (CRI)
