Gospel Time Trekkers # 3
Publisher: Pauline Books and Media
In this third volume of the Gospel Time Trekkers series, children ages 6-9 are taken on a journey that imaginatively retraces Jesus welcoming the child Rebecca into a gathering with his disciples. On this journey, young readers personally encounter Jesus, experiencing what it was like to live in his time and be present for important Scriptural events. Remaining true to Biblical culture and scholarship, this historical fiction book offers a creative presentation of Christian faith and values, making it the perfect addition to your home or school library!
Arriving in the fishing village of Gennesaret, the siblings meet a girl named Rebecca. This girl eventually reveals herself as the child who was welcomed into Jesus’ gathering with his disciples when he made them reflect on their squabbles over self-greatness and importance. When they learn that Rebecca’s older brother Seth-who usually helps out with the family fishing-has broken his leg, Caleb confidently offers to fill in his place. But with only a torch to light the way, fish wildly flapping in the nets, and gusting winds whirling through the air, little does he know the danger that lies ahead. To make matters worse, Seth feels like Caleb is replacing him… and he isn’t holding back his anger.
What will happen when Caleb sets off to sea? Will Seth change his mind about Caleb? Read on to find out how Rebecca’s story about servitude and humility ends up being the best catch of the day!
