Let's go back nearly two thousand years, to a big city in the backwater province of Palestine. Many people in the city of Jerusalem were about to have an encounter with a man they would never, ever forget. Even though Pilate washed his hands of an innocent man, how could he ever forget his conversation about truth with the 'King of the Jews'? A soldier would always remember the words of the man on the cross.
But, that's not all. This man died and was buried. Three days later people encountered the same man – alive. Surely, that was an encounter that they would never forget. And this man's name was Jesus. This book is a collection of scripts, poems, prayers and dramatic readings all about these groundbreaking encounters. They can be used in schools and churches, for lessons, assemblies, and services to impact and inspire.
Tony Bower is the head of YoYo (York Schools and Youth Trust), which is a Christian charity that brings the Christian faith alive.
The drama work that Tony has done for our school for special services has been inspirational. Both children and parents have been moved by the content, and the dramas have ignited these events into very special spiritual moments.

The drama was moving and powerful; I could not commend the results highly enough. This is the perfect starting point when developing such enriching experiences with children.
