In this classic story Dr. R.C. Sproul continues his project of illustrating theological concepts for children. The Priest with Dirty Clothes teaches the concept of imputation, which lies at the heart of the important biblical doctrine of justification.
Using the story of Joshua the high priest (Zechariah 3:15) as his jumpingoff point, Dr. Sproul weaves a classic tale about a young priest who is invited to preach his first sermon before the king and his court. But on his way to the palace, he falls from his horse, getting his clothes hopelessly muddy. Jonathan finds that he needs powerful help if he is to stand before the king. This edition of The Priest with Dirty Clothes includes allnew illustrations by Justin Gerard and a new For the Parents section to help them bring out the truths of the book for their children.
R.C. Sproul (1939-2017) was founder of Ligonier Ministries in Orlando, Fla. He was also first minister of preaching and teaching at Saint Andrews Chapel, first president of Reformation Bible College, and executive editor of Tabletalk magazine. His radio program, Renewing Your Mind, is still broadcast daily on hundreds of radio stations around the world and can also be heard online.
The sermon in The Priest with Dirty Clothes is quite apparent. Jesus has promised to clothe us in His righteousness so that we can stand before God. Founder of Ligonier Ministries and senior minister of St. Andrews in Florida, as well as noted author and apologist, R. C. Sproul puts this deep theology into words that preschoolers to adults can understand. The narrative is a delightful tale; the moral is apparent. Sproul introduces this story with some words of wisdom and pertinent Scripture. He closes it with discussion helps for parents and children. Sci-fi and fantasy illustrator (Kung Fu Panda, for one) Justin Gerard knows well how to put the aura of fable into his action filled, colorfully lustrous illustrations. The Priest with Dirty Clothes is a beautifully published, hardcover book which will be treasured for a long time by families and classrooms fortunate enough to have it. This is what Sproul aimed for: to produce a book which can be read multiple times with new dynamics arising with each reading. He has achieved his goal. Donna Eggett, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
