If you know a first responder or a member of the military, you may have seen their collection of challenge coins. A challenge coin is a collectible coin or medallion bearing the insignia, emblem, or logo of an organization, branch or unit. The Roman Empire rewarded soldiers by presenting them with specially minted coins in addition to their pay. They would keep these coins as mementos of their achievements. During the Renaissance, such coins were called “Portrait Medals” and used to commemorate specific events involving royalty, nobility, or other well-to-do individuals. The medals would be given as gifts or awards, and people also exchanged them with friends and associates. They were also used to boost morale and to prove someone was a member of a certain group. Christian challenge coins come in many different designs that can be gifted, collected and traded. Teens can carry a Christian challenge coin in their pocket or backpack as a reminder to listen to God, live righteously, and exercise faith.

This inexpensive little 96-page mass-market paperback is the perfect size for slipping into an Easter basket. Written in an easy-to-read journalistic style, The Case for Easter probes the core evidence for the resurrection. It explores three primary questions about the facts surrounding the death of Jesus through an investigative reporter’s lens. The three questions are: 1) did Jesus die by crucifixion; 2) did His body really disappear from the tomb; and 3) did credible people see Jesus alive after His death? Read the book, examine the evidence, and decide for yourself! The verdict is up to you.
