“The Dusty Sandal”: a heartwarming children’s story depicting Jesus’ death and resurrection. “The Dusty Sandal” is the creation of published author Christine Caligiuri, a mother of six who led a Bible study group in Lehigh County Prison for nine years and currently resides in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Christine shares, “The idea for 'The Dusty Sandal' came to me years ago as I watched my own children and realized that when Jesus died, there must have been children in the streets of Jerusalem. Also, there were children wanting to be around Jesus when he walked the areas of Judea. Chapter 19 of Matthew tells us the apostles tried to run them off. These two realizations inspired the story of how the young beggar boys, Jesse and Bart, found one of the sandals belonging to Jesus and witnessed his death and resurrection.”

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Christine Caligiuri‘s new book is a sensitive account of Jesus’ death and resurrection for young readers.
