A story of discovering some of God’s lessons one can get outside of the church as a 10 year old boy makes his journey to become a better neighbor and learns the value of sacrifice for others in the new picture book titled Jesus’ Jeans written by Linda G. Gray.

Ben is a 10 year old boy who has the privilege of speaking in front of his church on a Sunday. On his five block walk to the church, he discovers that some of God’s lessons are better learned outside of church. Without even knowing it, he will touch a special neighbor’s life by putting love into action.

Kids and adult readers alike will relate to the story in this vividly illustrated book which is about a boy’s neighborly love and Jesus’ message of doing for others as He did for all of mankind. Ben’s super awesome, brand spanking “totally in” new jeans might turn into a not so awesome, muddy, ripped jeans but his selfless act of helping others is one totally awesome trait that readers may emulate.

Furthermore, this book teaches readers about God’s everlasting love for everyone. Sometimes, He plans some little detours along the way, but these are just some of His acid tests to find out how one follows Him as He helps everyone no matter who they are or what circumstances are they in. After all, God’s love for mankind is unconditional.

This book will be featured at the 2012 Bologna Book Fair in Bologna, Italy, on March 19-22, 2012.
