Celebrated children’s author Rebekah McLeod Hutto (The Day When God Made Church) teams up with illustrator Jacob Popčak to introduce kids to the Apostle Paul — in the form of a lovable honey badger! Young readers will be introduced to Paul and his ministry and then hear stories of his friends, including Ananias, Barnabas, Silas, Lydia, Priscilla and Aquila, and Timothy. All of these New Testament characters will help teach kids about friendship, and how Jesus, our friend, calls us to care for each other as friends.
Originally from South Carolina, Rebekah McLeod Hutto is a graduate of Wofford College and Duke Divinity School. She is a Presbyterian U.S.A. minister currently serving in New York City at Brick Presbyterian Church. She and her husband, B.J., are raising their children to love the diversity and culture of New York City. As a child Rebekah was surrounded by stories and one day hoped to write engaging stories for children. The Day When God Made Church was her first children’s book and she was excited to follow it with this book on friendship in the early church.
