In ten action-packed stories, Whistlestop Tales tells how God uses people from all over the world in his global adventure. From Iraq to Italy, Sudan to Cyprus, each tale begins with a look at a modern-day country to help ground the characters in their original context and cultures. Things may not happen exactly as you’ll find in the Bible, a Whistlestop Tale paints a picture of person, their challenges and victories in a new and exciting way to get you thinking.
If you’re a fan of David Walliams or Roald Dahl, the chances are you’ll really enjoy a Whistlestop Tale and maybe look at the Bible in a whole new way!
And don’t be fooled by the frivolous first impression – Krish and Miriam are tackling a serious and timely issue here – flagging that racial diversity is a big feature of God’s story in the Bible and often we overlook this.
In their first children’s book, Krish and Miriam Kandiah combine Biblical and theological expertise with a generous helping of artistic license and fun, and, with help from our incredible illustrator Andy Gray, show how a wonderful array of characters are swept up in God’s plans for the whole world!
Miriam and Krish take parents, carers and children on an exciting global adventure through the Bible.
