The Seriously Surprising Story – Free booklet


We’d like to offer you the opportunity to share the story of Jesus with the younger generation through ‘The Seriously Surprising Story’ booklet.

The Seriously Surprising Story draws children into the biblical story of Easter as they follow in the footsteps of Jesus’ followers on the road to Emmaus. There they encounter a stranger, and talk to him about the things that have happened in Jerusalem. Just as the disciples were surprised, so children will be too, when they learn the stranger is Jesus himself!

In 2019, with the help of our generous supporters, we distributed over 60,000 copies of this booklet to children across New Zealand and this year we have more copies available for your church!

Just use the form below to make your order and then we’ll send you your free copies in time for Easter.

“It’s a lovely little book. It’s warm, it’s happy, it’s the Good News! The Seriously Surprising Story is the account of Easter told backwards from Emmaus so that Jesus’ crucifixion is in the context of the resurrection. The positive message, with the rhythmic text and lively illustrations, make it a perfect book for young children. It’s also good news for the child in adults like me.”

Joy Cowley, New Zealand children’s author
