God’s Truth-Tellers – Esther (Trinity Season)

 
$5.00 (USD)

A short story (ten chapters) tells the exciting tale of Esther, a royal queen.  With the help of Mordecai, she courageously offers a plan to the king that saves the Hebrew people and identifies his unfit advisers.  The song about Elijah is one of eight in a series about prophets (God’s Truth-tellers) that can be used as part of a Vacation Bible School or Church School curriculum, or a children’s message in church. An adult education course by the authors also uses this set of songs.

Price:  $5.00 (USD)

God called Esther as a witness;
To this exile God said, “Don’t sit!”     [spoken or shouted by children]
“Time now, brave one, to speak my Word.”
