Pip, one of the disciples, retells more of the adventures he had while hanging out with Jesus in this fun, quirky yet informative story from master storyteller Bob Hartman.
Big Bart, Tommo and me, Pip. Three guys on a three-year adventure. Hanging out with Jesus. Finding out what he's up to. Not exactly the best known of the twelve disciples, but we're on the edge of the action - out of the limelight, where there is plenty of partying, messing about and time to make an idiot of yourself.
We're best mates. And Jesus' mates, too. Here are some more of our adventures; stories you'll find in the Bible if you take a look. Well, sort of, because everything is just a little bit different when you're hanging out with Big Bart and Tommo. So join us and find out what happens when we meet up with Jesus ... again.
'Only Bob Hartman could tell the story of Jesus with so many pants, bottoms and nostrils and get away with it. The gospel stories from the point of three disciples who have a distinctly childlike attitude to bodily functions, religious jargon and the mystery of faith: Huge fun.' Lucy Moore, Messy Church
'My daughter was laughing from the word "Pants" in chapter one - biblical brilliance from Bob once again Compelling & hilarious ' Tom Elliott
'Bob Hartman has the knack of finding humour in any situation. His invitation to hang out with Jesus will capture the imagination of many children. As they laugh at the antics of Pip, Tommo and Bart they will also discover the love and teaching of Jesus. Mary Hawes, National Children & Youth Adviser
'Laugh out loud, feel good, family fun. I love it.' Steve Legg
'Only a Bible story book by Bob Harman could have chapter titles like "Pants", "Leopards", and "Hankie" The illustrations are brilliant, the application so very practical and the storytelling just what you'd expect from somebody who has held generations of children spellbound. A child you care for will love "Hanging out with Jesus Again." Rob Parsons OBE, Founder and Chairman, Care for the Family
'Bob's writing is just fabulous. The stories leap off the page - modern, accessible, and above all FUN . These tales of friends getting things wrong, puzzling it all out, is a great reminder that the disciples were really rather like us. Bob's skill at storytelling is first class. Oh, and if you didn't know - these stories go back a long way I bet you just didn't know how funny they could be. A fab book for your bookshelf, your eyes and your heart. Bob's done it again ' Paul Kerensa
