The Priest With Dirty Clothes is the story of redemption told for children. With lovely pictures and a biblical story (from Zechariah 3), what is not to love?
We are sinful. Christ is righteous. On the Cross Christ took on our sinfulness and gave us His righteousness in exchange. When we are saved by grace God no longer sees our sin, instead He sees Christ’s purity. Thus we are clean before an Almighty God and redemption is ours.
If our children can understand this, they will get the Gospel. If they read The Priest With Dirty Clothes, they will have a good chance of understanding these concepts. Pair this book with The Prince’s Poison Cup and children will have a pretty complete picture of the Gospel story.
At the end of the book there is a list of questions so parents and children can go deeper and really explore the Biblical concepts put forth in this story.
My take? This is a book worthy of a permanent place on our shelves.
