The People Paul AdmiredI’ve been a little remiss in posting about this book, but now is as good a time as any, because Christmas is approaching and this book would be a great gift or superb for summer reading.

The People Paul Admired, by Beulah Wood, is an absorbing insight into the everyday life of the first-century church. Beulah examines the lives and lifestyles of early house church leaders at the time of Paul. Uniquely, she does this through first-person narratives delivered by historically-based characters such as servant girls and minor characters from the book of Acts – a technique that lifts the book into being an engrossing read. Carefully researched and creatively written – entertaining and informative.

Beulah Wood, BD (Melbourne), DMin (Gordon-Conwell), has published over thirty books in New Zealand, India, and the UK. She now divides her time between writing in New Zealand and teaching half of each year at South Asia Institute of Advanced Christian Studies, Bangalore, India.

A few months ago we took on distribution for a very wonderful kids’ picture book authored by New Zealander Mike de Vetter. The Rose Princess and the Special Gift is beautifully illustrated in full colour with a hard cover. And now it’s available for a new special price of NZ$17.95. For more info and to purchase a copy online, head over to this page on the Castle website.

Here is some feedback about the book so far:

“There are a lot of children’s books on the market today, but only a handful are as engaging and captivating to kids as The Rose Princess and the Special Gift. It is itself a special gift, that is not only visually beautiful, but also tells a beautiful story with an important message. As a Dad, I want as many tools that help will me connect with my children and that help me pass on a lasting faith to them – this is one such tool.” – Tim Sisarich (Father of five and Executive Director, Focus on the Family NZ)

“The Rose Princess and the Special Gift is a delightful book that speaks to the heart of a child. Every small girl needs to hear from her dad that she is lovely and yes she is capable of goodness. This book communicates both of those messages. In a special way the affirmation of a father permeates the story and embraces the small princess in a world of imagination. Our own small granddaughters were captivated!” – Mary Grant (Founder, Parents Inc. and Faith 4 Families)
