The Bible has had a life-changing impact on people for thousands of years. Biblical narratives and character studies have inspired, encouraged, challenged, and warned millions for generations. But what if these stories were rewritten from the unique vantage point of the animals who were also there? This is the proposition of this book by Ken Davis especially useful for families with school-aged children.
Meet Galya, one of the nicest sheep you could hope to know. Far too nice to be hanging out with a crusty, bitter bird like Edgar the raven. Yet, who but someone as kind and wise as Galya could see past Edgar’s nastiness to his deepest need and care about him enough to tell him the Sheep Tales?In Sheep Tales, the animals have their say. Here is the Bible story as you and your children have never experienced it, seen through the eyes of Galya, Edgar, Arvid the platypus, Dandy the lion, Glubber the whale, and other furry, feathery, and creepy-crawly creatures made and loved by God.This devotional storybook will touch and delight your children--and you. With tenderness, humor, and creativity, author Ken Davis takes your imagination to the very heart of the gospel: God’s love, displayed from the Creation to the Resurrection. It’s big enough to weave the animals children love into God’s awesome plan of redemption. And it’s wonderful enough and strong enough to heal anything--even a broken and angry heart like Edgar’s.
