Book Review - Lukas' Maiden Voyage
During this Lenten season, Gene Price is rewriting the Easter story by adding a different point of view.
In Price’s new book, Lukas’ Maiden Voyage, he provides a Christian-fable that teaches the whole family about the importance of Easter.
Adding new and exciting twists to this annual story, Price casts the account from a unique point of view – Jesus’ donkey. Throughout this narrative, the reader will follow Lukas, a young donkey with physical aliments, and his first, and most important journey into Jerusalem with Christ. Along the way, Lukas overcomes the bullying for his differences and learns the true meaning of faith. Accompanied by illustrations of the young donkey’s journey, Lukas’ Maiden Voyage keeps children of all ages entertained.

My Take on the Book
What a unique story! I would not have considered the point of view of the donkey that carried Jesus into Jerusalem. However, the book is not just this story, but it incorporates so many more positive and important messages that all parents will want to share with their children. I loved how the author took this story and made it so different. The message that was shared was special and poignant and definitely one that I would encourage all families to share with one another!
