In this Comic:
Adam and Eve: This story walks children through the creation of Adam from the dust and the creation of Eve from a rib from Adam's side. It then deals with the temptation of the serpent and the subsequent fall of Adam and Eve. Finally, they are expelled from the garden of Eden and the angel guards the way so they cannot return.
Ruth: The story briefly recounts the beautiful story of Ruth the Moabitess. The journey of Naomi and her husband Elimelech with their sons into the land of Moab because of the famine in Israel. The great tragedies that befall Naomi as first her husband and eventually her two sons die in the land of Moab. She is left with two daughters in law who are not from Israel and she encourages them to go and find new husbands. Oprah taked the lead from Naomi and returns. However, Ruth is determined to go to the land of Israel with Naomi. In Bethlehem Ruth would later meet Boaz a mighty man of wealth and he would marry her and so Ruth would end up as an ancestor of David and of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Two Builders: This story recounts the wonderful parable spoken by the Lord Jesus of the two builders, one wise and one foolish. The key lesson is drawn out for the children of the necessity to listen and obey the things that the Lord Jesus said. Paul and Silas: Here the comic retells in graphic detail the wonderful conversion of the Philippian jailer, the story recorded in Acts 16. The gospel is faithfully presented as the jailer is told to 'Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and you will be saved.'
Puzzles: there are two pages of puzzles at the end of the comic along with other activites to stimulate the minds of the young.
