As an experienced and gifted storyteller, Ralph Milton, draws the listener into the story, even when it deals with difficult subject matter. His easy-going, loving style captivates children and opens avenues for discussion. Listening to these stories helps children of all ages connect to what they hear in church. Margaret Kyle’s energetic illustrations make each story pop to life. Together the stories and illustrations portray a God of love to children and adults alike.Year C contains many new and wonderfully engaging stories from both the Hebrew and New Testament scriptures. There is at least one, but usually two stories to choose from for each Sunday of the church year. Readers will find well-loved stories such as: "The Wonderful Wedding Party", "Isaiah Becomes a Prophet", "Jesus Tells Stories"", and "Learning How to Give". Like the other two books in the series, Year C is synchronized with the Lectionary, making it easy to use for educators, and includes a scripture index for non-lectionary use.
