Braving The Storm V2 (Gospel Time Trekkers)
In this second volume of the Gospel Time Trekkers series, children ages 6 - 9 are taken on a journey that imaginatively retraces Jesus's miracle of the five loaves and two fish and the miracle at the wedding in Cana. On this journey, young readers personally encounter Jesus, experiencing what it was like to live in his time and be present for important Scriptural events. Remaining true to Biblical culture and scholarship, this historical fiction book offers a creative presentation of Christian faith and values, making it the perfect addition to your home or school library!
The siblings time-travel to a small town where they meet Levi, the son of a merchant. They discover that Levi had been in a crowd listening to Jesus speak and was the one who offered to share his five loaves and two fish, which Jesus multiplied to feed the hungry crowd. After hearing his story, they set off with him to find Jesus, only to get lost in Cana in the middle of a raging storm! But they can't go home just yet... they still have one more miracle story to hear!

-Anne Eileen Heffernan, FSP, author of Bible for Young Catholics
"As I read the Gospel Time Trekker Series, I was more and more amazed by the way in which stories from Jesus' life in the Bible can come alive for our young people. Sister Maria Grace Dateno, FSP, the author of this six-part series, enables our young to experience encounters with Jesus, recorded in the Gospels, but now so powerfully engaging their attention. Yes, Jesus becomes much more real for them in His birth at Bethlehem, as He changes water into wine at Cana and feeds the hungering crowd, as He calms the violent storm threatening His disciples in their boat, as He raises from the dead the daughter of Jairus, as He restores sight to blind Bartimaeus and as He rises from the dead. Although the manner in which these encounters with Jesus are told with creativity and imagination, yet the reality of Jesus and His encounters with us remain real. The illustrations throughout this six-part series are likewise attractive and welcoming to young people. I heartily endorse this series: Gospel Time Trekkers to parents, to teachers, to any and all who desire to lead the young to Jesus, the Source of mercy, hope, love and life"
