A free resource is now available to help teach the lesson of Jonah. Called The Lesson of Jonah: There is a Price to Pay when you Disobey, the ebook includes a short story involving a modern Jonah, discussion questions, Scripture citations and optional homework.
“The homework is to write a short story, which can be entered into a writing contesta writing contest for 10 to 14 year olds, who are to write exaggerated tales of woe or wail tales about kids who land in a whale of trouble for their wrong choices,” says Cheryl Rogers, publisher of New Christian Books Online Magazine.
The magazine is holding the writing contest in conjunction with the John 3:16 Marketing Network. The contest is intended to grow youths in their faith and introduce new readers to the magazine and its Christian authors.
The ebook gives churches, parents, Sunday school teachers and other interested adults a teaching tool, enabling them to play an active role in helping youths submit entries.
“The wail tales must be their own work, but the free lesson plan helps the children understand the biblical principles involved,” explains Cheryl.
Avid readers 9 to 17 can help judge the contest and get in on the fun by contacting Cheryl at http://www.songsfromtheword.com/NewChristianBooks/contact/
Entries must be submitted by email by July 15 to firstname.lastname@example.org The first prize is $100, a $50 Walmart gift card and books by Christian authors.
