The adventures of Mary and Abe is a story about all God’s children. God’s blue eyed children and his brown eyed children. It is a story that help us to understand that we are all part of Gods’ story – doesn’t matter how we differ from each other. This book teaches children about God – where we come from and where we are going and that each and every one of us can tell a piece of God’s story every day.
“Tinus has beautifully told the story of togetherness as it should be understood by Christians. As we taught children about the evil of separation, so should we now teach them about the goodness of unity! This book will help especially those who want their children to have a wonderful sense of unity.” Mvume Dandala – former presiding bishop of the Methodist Church of Southern Africa and a former head of the All Africa Conference of Churches.
“This story respects the ability of children to face the complexities of life and to respond to it from a conviction that another world is possible.” Elize Morkel is a clinical psychologist and holds a doctorate in theology. She serves on the executive church council of the DR Church and is chairperson of the national task team of the inter-church initiative, Season of Human Dignity.
