Just in time for the Easter holiday, national bestselling author, Daniel Whyte III, is releasing two new books celebrating Jesus Christ and His death, burial, and resurrection. The non-fiction book,The Unsung Heroes of Easter, and the novella, Resurrection Sunday, show the power of Jesus Christ in the lives of those who lived and ministered with Him in the first century and in the lives of people today.
