Jesus' Day Off, Paperback
4.5 out of 5 (1 rating)


Jesus worked hard to make the world beautiful. He performed miracles, told fabulous stories - all for free - and generally spent his time spreading joy and light around the world.

A tiring business, as Jesus had to admit when, one day, he had trouble getting out of bed. And worse - the miracles start to go wrong! But help is at hand. 'Take the day off, Jesus,' said the doctor. 'Relax. Have some fun!' So Jesus had some fun - but was it worth it?

Dad, as usual, has the answer!

Review by

I was given this by a friend some years ago - it appears to be a children's book - and probably is partly intended as one, but reading it on strongly suspects that the Nicholas Allan was aiming it more at overworked and guilt-ridden ministers. The Christology is not exactly conventional but the message is excellent.
