|Young children learn about God through stories tailored especially for them. Weaving tales from real life situations that children can easily relate to, great-grandfather and theologian R.C. Sproul opens important biblical truths to children. (Parents might even learn a thing or two.)
Dr. Sproul’s newest story, The Prince’s Poison Cup, is the story of a little girl, Ella, who is sick and must take yucky medicine to make her well. Ella wonders why something that will make her get well has to taste so bad. She puts the question to Grandpa who tells her the story of atonement and the terrible price that Jesus had to pay for our redemption by being willing to drink that awful cup.
