Description
“Jonah and the Whale, Cain and Abel, David and Goliath”... These are stories you know and love... As a youth pastor, the big question I am always asked is: Are Bible stories like these still relevant today? My answer is always the same: Absolutely, they are! The idea that young people today may choose to not even open a Bible to read what is inside because they don’t feel it is relevant today has inspired me to create the Then & Now Collection for Flippinstories. "Courageous Me," one book, two similar situations. In the first half of this book you will first read the heart-pounding story of David and Goliath as told from the creative mind, of author and illustrator Suzanne Price. How did David, an insecure small boy who was always being picked on, end up coming face to face with a giant? Then continue reading and meet Kye, in the second part of this book. Kye lives in todays times, He too needed to deal with his own insecurities. Will he give up his hopes and dreams or will he overcome the giant obstacles he faces? As you read BOTH stories you will discover just how similar David's experiences are to Kye's.
About the author
With author and illustrator Suzanne Price's passion for teaching and her love for God, she has created this collection of books called Then & Now. One book, two sides, two stories with similar situations. The Then side is her adaptation of a Bible story. She brings to life Bible characters in a way we may not have thought of before. Then flip the book over and read the Now side. What better way to show our young people that the types of things that happened to people who lived over 2000 years ago are still happening in our day, and God's message is still the same! What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again: there is nothing new under the sun. Ecclesiastes 1:9 NIV. Let's face it, today's children are being raised in homes and communities that are quite different from what we and our parents were raised in! They are exposed to all sorts of influences that make teaching them about God's Promise very challenging! As parents, we want our children to know God as the powerful, forgiving, generous, loving, all-knowing being that He is, and we want them to know the Bible stories that have defined our understanding of how God shaped the world during those times. As a devoted mother of three, a loving grandmother of four, a pastor and teacher, Suzanne knows the challenges our youth face and also knows there are so many questions and doubts. But she also believes we can better prepare them for the adversity they will face by teaching them how God's truth was given to us in the form of Bible stories and how those truths are as relevant today as they were over 2000 years ago! She will show how, when faced with adversity, with faith and determination, we can overcome our difficulties and be a stronger, more courageous person as a result!
