Product Description

This book is a provocative youth drama that is a striking parable about belief in something that seems impossible and the courage to do what God commands. Two young women who are decorating a community center in an underprivileged neighborhood encounter three angry toughs who resent the girls' "kindness." With the gentle insistence of an angel who gives them an unusual assignment, the girls confront their fear and tell the skeptical urban kids about Jesus. And despite initial wariness, the message finds a home in some of their hearts. The play can be presented as part of a worship service or as the entertainment at a church dinner or other gathering. It can be staged as elaborately or as simply as you wish, and lends itself to a readers' theater format. This book is an excellent discussion starter that is sure to generate many viewpoints about our preconceived ideas of what constitutes "missions." And it connects the occasion of Christ's birth to the birth of new spiritual life. With realistic dialogue and situations, it's perfect for use with teenagers.
