The Angel and the Elephant by Rosemary Lester Cushway


The Angel and the Elephant by Rosemary Lester Cushway

You might think that there is nothing new to learn from the stories of the New Testament. You might be wrong. This book is the delightful re-telling of several New Testament stories, including the birth of Jesus, as seen through the eyes of a young elephant and an angel. An unlikely partnership, but one that does not appear incongruous, thanks to these well woven short stories. Adults and children alike will warm to this family of elephants and particularly to the young elephant, later to become lead elephant of his own herd, who helps a tired young angel travel to Bethlehem to see the new born baby Jesus. Allow yourself to be transported to a world where angels exist and miracles really happen.
