This Christmas Bible Society New Zealand, through the generosity of its supporters, is giving away 85,000 copies of The Well Good News of Christmas, a fun and colourful booklet for parents and grandparents to help them pass on the Bible story of Christmas.
Last year, this little book was a run-away success with 3,000 copies flying out the door equipping families to pass on the Bible story of Christmas. Following on its heels was The Super Cool Story of Jesus, with 84,000 copies given away to children around the country with the help of churches and families.
In publishing another 85,000 copies of The Well Good News of Christmas, Bible Society is hoping to reach the 36%* of Kiwi kids who have never seen, read or heard the story of Jesus’ birth. The book is part of Bible Society’s Pass It On campaign designed to encourage and equip parents, grandparents and caregivers to pass on their passion for the Bible to the next generation.
With The Well Good News of Christmas, people have a fantastic opportunity to share the good news of Christmas with the children in their communities using a brilliantly fun book. It’s a story that is still impacting and changing lives today.
Stephen Opie, BSNZ Programme Director.
Written by Welsh author Dai Woolridge, the story is aimed at four to eight-year-olds using child-friendly rhyming language.
And while The Well Good News of Christmas focuses on the events around Jesus’ birth, it also includes a little about creation, and Jesus’ life and ministry.
