Author Bio

Noël Piper (BA, Wheaton College) and her husband, John, ministered at Bethlehem Baptist Church in Minneapolis, Minnesota for over 30 years. She is the author of Treasuring God in Our Traditions and Faithful Women and Their Extraordinary God.

Growing up, Gail Schoonmaker loved to draw pictures depicting the songs and stories she heard in church. She earned a B.A. in art from Wheaton College and makes her home in Chicago’s Hyde Park neighborhood with her husband, Keith, and their four children.


Noel Piper has created a book that is not just scripturally correct but politically correct as well, in her children's picture book for 3- to 7-year-olds titled Do You Want a Friend? A little boy moves to a new neighborhood and seeks new friends. He discovers that friends can be his age, but they can also be much older. Friends can be male or female, able-bodied or physically challenged, tall or short. They can be of various nationalities, colors, and ethnic origins.

The most important lesson to learn, however, is that there is no greater friend in any circumstance than the Lord Jesus. If we try to be like Him, not only will be have more friends, but we will also be a better friend to others.

Each double set of pages teaches young readers the value of friendship. This is shown in bright colorful drawings by Gail Schoonmaker of friends loving each other, comforting each other, playing together, studying together, and sharing with one another. Each time a lesson about friendship is taught and is displayed with a drawing, it is supported by a passage from the Bible. For instance, one lesson is that a friend will forgive you when you do something wrong, and the passage cited is Ephesians 1:7, "In him, we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace."

The book concludes with the words and music of John Newton's hymn "One There Is, Above All Names." This is an attractive little book that is filled with practical advice and biblical wisdom. – Dr. Dennis E. Hensley,
