Author Ibrahim Michail Hefzallah is launching a new marketing push for “I Have Grown in His Love” (published by WestBow Press). This book helps readers relive Jesus’ miracles and teachings, as told from the viewpoint of the young boy – whom the author names James – whose five loaves of bread and two fish Jesus blessed and used to feed 5,000 people.

Readers witness Jesus and his love through this young boy’s fictional firsthand perspective. Through 10 stories, James develops an understanding of Jesus’ holy presence and recalls everything from observing the miracle of Jesus feeding the crowd to Jesus’ death and resurrection and the establishment of His Church.

Intended for all ages, “I Have Grown in His Love” illustrates one young man’s maturation in faith and how readers can share in the love of Jesus Christ. More information is available at

“While I was meditating, I imagined the biblical events as I was reading,” Hefzallah says. “I put myself into the young boy’s position, whose five loaves of bread and two fish Jesus blessed to feed a huge crowd. I was left with many questions: Who was this boy? What was his life like before and after the miracle? From there, I let my imagination tell his story of faith.”
