Based on Acts 16, this is a fun and compelling retelling of how a Philippian jailer and his family learned the wonderful truth about Jesus Christ.

The ascended Jesus’ ongoing power to save through the proclamation of the gospel and the presence of the Holy Spirit is imaginatively and powerfully brought to life by Bob Hartman.

Bob is a compelling storyteller and author of the Lion Storyteller Bible, which has sold over 130,000 copies in the UK and has been translated into 11 languages, and of YouVersion's Bible App for Kids.

Children will discover...
• Jesus’ ongoing power to save through the proclamation of the gospel and the presence of the Holy Spirit.
• The powerful witness of Paul and Silas, who sung while they were held captive and refused to break free when an earthquake destroyed the prison they were trapped in.
• How they can tell others the good news of Jesus Christ.
• How to imagine the sights and sounds of a Bible story.

Ideal for children aged 3-6.
