Take a look into the world of The Amazing Writer and His Five Pencils, a place where pencils express their personalities as they interact with the Amazing Writer. This story is a parable for children that teaches Hebrews 12:2 "Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith." It has unique illustrations of the pencils done in caricatures that children can identify with.
The story begins with a glimpse of all the wonderful characteristics of the Amazing Writer (GOD). It continues with how he sets out to purchase five special, expensive pencils (PEOPLE). Then the story focuses on the differing attitudes of each pencil toward using the sharpener (HOLY SPIRIT) and the eraser (JESUS).
Discover why the Amazing Writer cannot write anything at first with either the STUBBORN, the WHINER, the SHY, or the PROUD pencils. See how the COOPERATIVE pencil faithfully sharpens, erases, and allows the Amazing Writer to use him in ways that he never thought possible. Watch as the other pencils begin to change each time they let the Amazing Writer use them. In the end, find out what becomes of each pencil and why.
A question-and-answer page with Bible references is included. This will help parents explain and apply the parable to their child's daily life as they discuss the question, "Which pencil are you?"
