Overview

In a world where Children are probably more familiar with Harry Potter than Jesus, it’s often hard to encourage them to read the Bible in its traditional form. YHWH introduces the wonderful Bible stories to them in a way that captures their imagination YHWH is based on the scripture but adds description and other allegory to make the stories come alive. The project is supported by Walk Through the Bible Ministries who teach the Bible to over 40,000 school children each year. It could be used by Christians as a tool for evangelism and would be ideal as a gift for children and young people unfamiliar with the classic Bible narratives.

What People are saying about this

From the Publisher
'With creativity, Graham Taylor takes ancient stories with timeless principles and brings them to life. A refreshing experience to read' J.John Author and Evangelist "Unsurprisingly I find that it’s written firmly from the point of view of a believer. I’m about to publish a book myself called The Good Man Jesus and the Scoundrel Christ, which is firmly from the opposite point of view. Given that, I can hardly see that a commendation from me would do you any good at all. I wish you luck with this." Philip Pullman. Author The Amber Spyglass. "In this wonderful book, GP Taylor has unearthed some great, lost treasures of the Bible and polished them with his own extraordinary gift of storytelling, causing them to sparkle again for a generation that has so often forgotten these brilliant gems. This book is a treasure chest. Cup your hands and dig deep." Dr Mark Stibbe, bestselling UK author and founder of the Father's House Trust "Fascinating and powerfully written, The Flood, The Fish, & The Giant captures the imagination and tells the human saga in the midst of God's story. A triumph." Chris Coppernoll, Screenwriter "In a world where the Bible is often a dusty book at the back of a cupboard, we need new ways of engaging with the Bible’s characters and stories. GP Taylor keeps to the text but retells the story in a modern idiom, holding the attention of the reader and renewing the story once again. This book could bring the Bible alive again for children and remind them of the treasures in store in the actual Bible." Rev Dr Peter Phillips. Director of Research. Centre for Biblical Literacy and Communication. St John’s College, Durham University
