Children, Teens, Stories, Christian Living
BY: Sally Pierson Dillon
SYNOPSIS: Jesus' worst enemy is about to become His best friend, and history will flow in a new channel. As Saul the Slayer becomes Paul the apostle, you are there, watching him and his friends–Peter, Barnabas, Silas, Luke, John–turn the world upside down.
Welcome to the acts of the Apostles as you've never known it before. Flat Bible characters suddenly jump into rich 3-D. Ancient stories come alive through the eyes of Bible-times children who are right there on the scene.
Starting with a fishy encounter with Peter, you'll watch Jesus ascend into the sky, then see Ananias and Sapphira drop dead, all through the eyes of Elihu, the son of the man whose ear Peter cut off in the garden. And that's just the beginning. Antonia, Thaddeus, Sulimon, Dion, and all the rest will keep you smack-dab in the center of the action during the exciting cradle years of the Christian church.
Sally Dillon was the author of numerous books, including Michael Asks Why, The Code Breaker, and two preschool devotional books, Little Hearts for Jesus and Hugs From Jesus. Sally's stories appeared in Guide, Insight, Kids' Stuff, and Adventist Review. Perhaps her most significant contribution was the War of the Ages series, an adaptation of the Great Controversy for young readers. The five volumes in the series include Survivors of the Dark Rebellion, Exile of the Chosen, Victory of the Warrior King, Champions of the King, and War of the Invisibles.
