Tales of the Inner City by Scott Bryte is a children sermons book. Here are some of the topics covered in this children sermons book:
This delightful collection of allegorical Christian parables takes readers into the imaginative world of the "Inner City," where they'll meet a colorful array of whimsical characters -- including sorkyls, puffbats, the Freeps, Zimm, and most importantly Grandfather, who "sits to tell tales and answer questions and make up the truth." Each tale recasts a familiar Bible story (such as the tower of Babel, the parable of the talents, Jonah and the whale, or the garden of Eden) in a unique, "off-the-wall" setting that will fascinate readers while offering them deep spiritual lessons on themes like confusion and original sin.
In addition to the vivid and humorous narratives, this volume also features beautifully detailed illustrations -- creating an enchanting environment that enlightens and entertains the eye as well as the ear. Each story includes discussion questions and an explanation of themes and symbols as well, making Tales of the Inner City a valuable tool for teaching lessons about life and about God. Readers of all ages will love these stories -- children will hear and remember them, adults will read and ponder them, and both can use them to think about and discuss their faith in new ways.
