On November 1, OC Publishing will launch the next in author Cindy Tingley's bible story series for children, Lily's Egypt Adventure.
Former Sunday school teacher, Darcy Gillis says, "Tingley speaks to the heart of all readers with a message of hope, freedom, and how all creatures great and small can be transformed by the power of God's love."
In this book, the third installment in the series of first chapter books, Lily the donkey continues her travels with the Holy Family as they depart Bethlehem in the dark of night to escape the clutches of King Herod who has put out a decree to execute all male children in Bethlehem under the age of two (known as the Massacre of the Innocents).
After crossing the desert, they arrive in Egypt and Lily's Egypt Adventure unfolds as new and old animal friends join the entourage and learn and share lessons of love, kindness, and forgiveness.
"I think young readers will relate to my main character, a feisty carrot-munching donkey who began the series with low self-esteem and now feels more confident as she learns more about the power of love," says Tingley.
