Everyone knows God loves stubborn punky kids, especially those who don't believe in Him. So with His help, it should be a snap for a bunch of determined nuns to convince three wild orphans that God exists. Meet Augustine, the cynical leader of an orphan posse. He figures, if his own parents didn't want him, why would God give him a break? Who believes in God anyway Despite his attitude, he finds himself constantly arguing with a very large, very conniving nun, Sister Mary Magdalene. She's going to prove to him that God exists and is always looking out for him. Her plan of attack is simple. She nags and cajoles the boy relentlessly, constantly shoving the bible under his nose so that he'll read it. Augustine just wants her to stop bugging him already, so he reluctantly agrees to peruse a few pages. He interprets the stories in hilarious and sometimes poignant ways. What's more, he's sharing his new knowledge with his two best friends, Jose and Sammy. The books in The Holy Misadventures of Augustine series employ gentle humor to remind us of Jesus' humanity. They are written in an imaginative and preposterous manner while always being respectful of God's tremendous love for us. Enjoy reading as the three boys grow, learn, and have funnier misadventures along the way. Watch out for the second book in the series: Penguins & Parachuting Frogs.
