Story Treasures: Christian Stories to Teach and InspireISBN: TREASURE
A story serves not just to amuse and enthuse. Good stories carry messages that illustrate the wonderful ways of God with His Church, share important truths, and give a Biblical perspective on important issues. Well-presented stories help listeners and readers of all ages become entwined in the life and times of the characters.
During his many years of teaching, Mr. Stoutjesdyk effectively used the story form to illustrate Biblical concepts and topics raised in other lessons. Many of his former students fondly remember the engaging and instructive stories he wove into his teaching. Parents and teachers will appreciate this volume written from the scriptural-experiental perspective.
Almost all of the stories compiled in this book are re-tellings from the works and ideas of other authors. They have been retold in today's English in a format more appealing to young people.
Mr. Stoutjesdyk was the founding principal of Mount Cheam Christian School in Chilliwack and served the school from 1980-2010. He and his wife Annette live in the Fraser Valley. The Lord has blessed them with nine children and twenty-six grandchildren.
