    Simon and the Easter Miracle

    Now available in paperback! The gospels tell of Simon of Cyrene—“a man coming in from the country”—who was ordered to carry Jesus’ cross.

    Over the centuries, his story has been woven into Polish folklore: When Simon the farmer brings his wares to market, little does he expect how he will be involved in the events of that very special day, nor how his produce—of bread, eggs, and wine—will become important symbols of Jesus’ passion and resurrection, remembered throughout the ages.

    Together with sophisticated artwork, this picture book retelling of a traditional European tale is thought-provoking, with the events and meaning of the first Easter at its heart.
