This collection of straightforward stories is to be used in teaching young Christian pupils to understand the significance of God and His Church. The stories centre on the life of a fictional Priest in an ordinary parish, and the local Christian families that he serves. There is a story for each Sunday and Holy Day of the Christian Year. The theme of each is tied in with a particular Bible quotation and thus relates to a specific Bible teaching. An example tale is that of the owner of a sweetshop whose business is threatened by a new candy store. His customers desert him but soon return because he always gives extra sweets at no extra cost while the profit-driven candy store "has no mercy". This text corresponds to Luke's teaching that if you give in "good measure" you will receive the same in return. The author has provided a comprehensive set of stories that are short and to the point. He writes in a clear and direct style making use of quiet humour and gentle irony to hold the audience's attention. The work offers a genuine solution to any teacher of the Christian religion who may experience difficulty in imparting their theological knowledge to their young pupils.
