A young boy is crippled and lonely until he meets his Master. While the story is that of an ordinary boy, living among shepherds and fishermen, it touches at every point the gospel narrative, making Joel, in a natural and interesting way, a witness to the miracles, the death, and the resurrection of the Nazarene. First published in 1895, this poignant classic still speaks spiritual truths to boys and girls today. Set in the land where Jesus walked, the narrative of the Gospel comes alive in away that will capture the fascination of children of all ages. It is ideal for children in middle and upper elementary grades. This version was republished by FACE in 1992.
