When children can’t meet up with their friends or go to church clubs and groups, Christian books make brilliant presents.

A book can be a friend for the lonely. The characters can inspire, and truths can be shared through an exciting plot. A book that shares good news can be a cup of cold water to a weary soul, food for the hungry – and several hours of thrilling reading for those who just love a good story!

If you know a child who needs to hear some good news, don’t let them miss out.

All our books are still half price during the lockdown – you could save a lot of money if you are buying for a group. 🙂

And don’t forget our competitions, which are a brilliant way to get whole families engaged with I Want to Be an Airline Pilot.

Here’s a little taste of the book, from chapter seven, when Shema goes to get help for his sick brother, but finds himself in danger instead:

He wanted to try to escape and run home but as he tried to call out “help!” his voice just seemed to dry up inside his mouth. He knew, too, that these huts were away from the road and the other houses, so nobody would hear him anyway.

I Want to Be an Airline Pilot and Deepest Darkness

This time, when the tears came, he could not even wipe them away. They fell down his face and felt salty on his lips. He realised he was also very thirsty. From somewhere deep inside him Shema felt he should talk to Mister God, even though he had never met him and didn’t know where he was.

“Mister God,” whispered Shema through his dry mouth, “you gave us warm clothes and Mama Grace and the teacher both said you loved us. I don’t know how you can, but help me now, please help me!”

We are delighted that the talented Ben and Hannah Dunnett have kindly agreed to judge our picture competition, based on this exciting story! Hannah is a Christian artist with international acclaim; Ben is a songwriter and worship leader. We’re so thrilled to have them on board!

May the Lord bless you this week, and if there’s anything we can do to help in these uncertain times, please don’t hesitate to contact us!
