Journey to the Cross helps answer questions that young people ask about the life of Jesus.
My Book Review:
If you are looking for an inspirational children's Christian story of Jesus' journey from birth to his crucifixion, then look no further, Journey To The Cross is a must read book that parents should share with their children.
Teenage author Shane Cloonan weaves a touching story of Jesus' life told from the unique perspective of the faithful donkey that will easily draw the reader in as they follow Jesus' journey. Through the donkey's eyes, the author delivers a truly heartfelt, soul stirring, and inspirational message that will touch the hearts of parents and children forever. I would be remiss if I didn't mention how beautiful the illustrations complement this lovely story. From cover to cover, this heartwarming story is a must read for all ages.
Journey To The Cross would make a wonderful Christmas tradition for families to read and pass on to each generation.
RATING: 5 STARS
About The Author
Shane Cloonan began writing Journey to the Cross as a sixth-grader at a Chicago-area Catholic school.
While his own journey to the publication of this book took three years, it was a complete labor of love. Shane is an avid outdoorsman. He also is an accomplished woodcarver. Shane took third place in his age group and category two years ago at the Ward World Championships Wildfowl Carving Competition in Maryland, then followed that up with a first-place finish in the International Woodcarvers Congress competition in Iowa.
Animals and pets of almost every shape and size have always been a big part of his life. It’s one of the reasons why he used a donkey as his lead character—a donkey that tells the most profound story in human history.
