A Walk with Papa
Patty Zemanick‘s “A Walk with Papa” is a wonderful way to introduce someone to Jesus and to explain salvation in a gentle, friendly way. In this story, a grandfather (Papa) invites his granddaughter to join him on a walk. The journey begins in a hay field, then moves into a forest. They travel alongside a stream and eventually arrive at a hilltop. The details of their journey are vividly described, giving the reader the feeling that she is walking with the two travelers.
Mid-point in the story, Papa and the child reflect on their journey and a conversation about Jesus begins. Papa points out things they experienced while walking that brings the salvation story to life. The book culminates in the child’s tender prayer to Jesus where she simply prays, “Jesus – I do love you. Please come into my heart. Forgive me for my sins. From you, I’ll never part.” The last two pages of the book include scripture references which will lead the reader into a deeper understanding of the gift Christ gave us in His gift of forgiveness and eternal life.
