As in the original Journey on which this children's adaptation is based, the text combines the traditional with the innovative. It asks children to journey with Jesus not just during this Way of the Cross but during every day of their lives.

(In Fall 2002 we will publish his follow-up to this book, If Jesus Were a Senior, a similar book in which he helps college students prepare for a Christian life in "the real world.")
