Talitha has been sick for a long time. She hears about the miracles Jesus is doing, but her Papa, Jairus, is not sure that they should ask him for help. After all, Jesus seems to be a Sabbath-breaker! Will Papa learn to trust Jesus in time to save Talitha’s life?
With engaging illustrations, David Edgren’s retelling of the resurrection of Jairus’ daughter is sure to capture the imagination. Written especially for early independent readers, this book explores themes such as faith in Jesus and the purpose of the Sabbath in a way that appeals to the heart. It is also perfect for family worship, with discussion questions at the end of the book.
