Joseph’s Boy

Jamie had BIG dreams. He wanted to be a prince. He wanted his dad to marry a lovely young woman called Mary. He wanted an army of little brothers and sisters who would look up to him and think how clever and important he was.
But at no point did he expect one of them to be a long-awaited king, destined to reign forever. Nope. Not part of the plan…

A kids’-eye take on the first Christmas!
Joseph’s Boy is the first of ‘The Young Testament’, a fun, accessible series of full-length books on the Jesus story, with the children and young people as the main characters.
