The Real Presence by Claudia Cangilla McAdam
Show children how God is present in the Eucharist!
Zedekiah and Abigail, two young cousins living in Capernaum at the time of Jesus, argue about everything. They want Jesus to judge which of their families’ crops is better--grain or grapes? But when they find themselves in the Upper Room at the Last Supper with gifts of their harvests for Jesus, they discover something more important than their presents.
“Simple and beautiful, this imaginative tale takes children to the time of Jesus and introduces them to the gift of the Real Presence found in the Eucharist.”
—Dr. Edward Sri
Theologian, speaker, and author of A Biblical Walk through the Mass
“Claudia’s knowledge of Scripture and her understanding of the behavior of kids combine with her rich imagination to deliver a relatable, thought-provoking tale about youngsters who could have lived at the time of Jesus. A truly fresh and inventive way to present to children the Real Presence of Jesus in the Eucharist.”
—Jeff Cavins, Speaker, author, media presenter, and creator of The Bible Timeline Learning System
