Through a perilous dream, a young boy discovers what life would be like had Jesus not come. The daunting question, "What if Jesus had not come?" will surely generate some thought-provoking discussion, whether at the family dinner table, before bedtime, in the car, or in the classroom. If He Had Not Come by Nan Weeks, was originally published in 1938 as part of Cynthia Pearl Maus s anthology entitled, Christ in the Fine Arts. The story has been redesigned for a new generation of children and their families.
