A cross between Pilgrim’s Progress and Narnia, I wrote this book to introduce people to Jesus Christ through a storybook. And now it’s turned into a mission project to benefit ministries across the globe. It’s an easy read for kids 9+ and I would love for you to consider giving this book to someone to introduce them to Jesus and lead them to The King’s Entryway.
