    This story set is a panoramic view of the Bible for children ages 8-14 with the theme of “God is my friend.”  You can choose from a 5, 10 or 14 story set, depending on your needs.  All story sets span creation to the early church.  Each story includes activities to help the children learn and retell the stories, along with discussion questions.  Although crafted for children ages 8-14, this story set has been used effectively with younger children in a modified form.  This story set’s original audience was American children living overseas, with the intention of helping them learn to share their faith using stories.  However, this set has been used effectively with several other groups as well, both American and non-American.

  • Description

    These stories were originally developed for the Hindu-background IT community of India.  The redemptive theme speaks to this community’s need to find true purpose in life amidst busy schedules and the constant struggle to move up the corporate ladder. This community attempts to live in a ‘western,’ or more secular, way, but its background and family values are still strongly steeped in Hindu traditions and values.  Because of this, the story set begins not with the supernaturally influenced creation story, but with the relationship-based David stories.  However, it moves quickly into Daniel, showing Daniel’s success in living a godly, uncompromising life in a hostile environment, and influencing that society for the good. 

     

    The audio files of this story set were recorded by a Christian South Indian IT professional.

     

    This set could be used in any situation where corporate or work culture leaves people feeling purpose-less.

    This panoramic story set’s theme is “marriage”.  It was developed in India for high caste Hindu-background women.  These women readily understand the joys and heartaches of marriage, and are drawn to the concept of a perfect “hero” husband who loves them as they are, so much so that he would give his life for them.  This story set is also explains that as our “perfect husband,” God expects full loyalty to him and no other.  These stories have been useful to explain why Jesus is the only way to God.
