Culture Wars and the Easter Bunny: One Author Fights Back

Lighthouse Faith

Mar 24 2024 • 29 mins

It may be a surprise to some folks, but the Easter Bunny has nothing to do with the true meaning of Easter. Neither do Easter baskets, bonnets, spring flowers or any of the plethora of secular imagery that have taken center stage during the Lent and Easter season, pushing the Resurrection of Jesus, the cornerstone of Christianity, to the side or dismissed entirely. But best-selling author Anthony DeStefano is fighting back. He's embraced the Easter Bunny for a children's book about Jesus, His life, crucifixion and resurrection. On this episode of Lighthouse Faith podcast, DeStefano talks about his new book, "The Story of the First Easter Bunny", and about the culture wars all parents of faith are battling in trying to teach their children the true foundations of their beliefs. DeStefano is the author of more than 25 books for children and adults; some of which delve into the headier issues of Christianity like heaven and hell. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit
