Crossroads in Galilee
by Elizabeth Raum
Imagine you lived at the time when Jesus was beginning His ministry in Galilee and were a child who observes what He does. At numerous points in the book, you choose what comes next, and every choice changes the outcome of the story. When one journey ends, a new one awaits.
This is a companion book to Christmas Crossroads.
