Dallas, TX, June 28, 2019 --(PR.com
)-- Like most young people, a young horse named Colton thinks mostly about himself. When his grandfather invites him to talk with a slow-moving burro named Henry, he learns some amazing things about the burro’s ancestors. In a new book released by Dog Ear Publishing, D.C. Faith presents a charming fable of the power of love against the backdrop of faith and service.
“Facing the Son: A Little Fable Inspired by True Events” uses the setting of a farmyard to tell stories of the Bible, such as the Garden of Eden, Noah’s ark, Abraham and the formation of the Israelites, Moses leading the Israelites out of Egypt, and the soothsayer Balaam and the burro who saves his life.
That same burro is the ancestor to a burro named Habra, who was owned by Joseph, a carpenter, and his pregnant wife, Mary. The young colt learns that Habra was the one who carried Mary to Bethlehem, where she gave birth to a special baby in a stable who was visited by kings. It’s Habra’s grandson who has the honor of carrying Jesus on his final visit to Jerusalem and learns Jesus’ sacrifice for the world.
Black and white illustrations bring the narrators to life in this straightforward telling of some of Christianity’s most important stories. Children of any age learn that being first and fast isn’t as important as being respectful and kind, and faith in God and service to each other is the tie that binds people – and animals – to one another.
Author D.C. Faith, who was born in Dallas, has lived in north Texas all her life. She volunteers at church and in the community, but she especially enjoys spending time with her children, family and friends. She believes the welfare of animals is important.
