A richly illustrated collection of stories from the New Testament.
In this new children's bible, Anglican priest and biblical scholar Rob James offers adaptations of fifty stories of Jesus’ life and ministry, as well as the experience of the early church, designed for oral storytelling. From the Annunciation to Resurrection appearances to Paul’s travels, Fifty New Testament Stories for Storytelling introduces children to the key events of the New Testament, whether at home, in church, or in school. Each story is richly and diversely illustrated by Anglican priest and artist Amanda Ruston, offering visual inspiration to children and storytellers alike.
Designed for new and experienced storytellers, each two-page narrative is built for dramatic retelling. Ideas for telling the story at the end of each narrative offer strategies to bring the text alive. Fifty New Testament Stories for Storytelling offers a fun and engaging way to introduce children to the basics of Christianity and the key events of the New Testament.
