Luke Out!: 25 Lively Stories from Luke's Gospel by George Humphrey
25 stories retold from Luke's Gospel, matched by 25 very sympathetic contemporary stories, covering related themes, about the Robinson family, parents Steve and Kate and their children Peter, Sarah and Jemma. By hearing one of Luke's stories and then a story about the Robinsons, children will: become familiar with some of the best stories from the Bible; realise that the Bible is not just about things that happened 2000 years ago to people living 3000 miles away, but that it also deals with issues that affect people today; learn that ordinary families have problems that they can often solve with understanding and patience; and begin to appreciate that the Bible can help young people today. The stories are primarily intended for school use but could also be used as talks in the context of junior church. A brief prayer is included for use at school assemblies.
