About the Book

Would you like to deepen your faith and knowledge of the Bible? The fictional stories in The Rich Young Ruler invite you to seize your imagination and join into the stories that are larger than your own story. Faithful to Scripture, these stories bring to life biblical characters, who were, after all, real people with real lives. These are “might have been” stories that reveal character and plot as novels do, but they are true to their corresponding biblical stories. Author George Grove hopes that this literary experience will bring you closer to God through real personal involvement in His Word. Some say St. Ignatius started this by encouraging the monks to enter the Bible through their imagination. This book is ideal for book clubs open to Christian writing and for Bible study groups to expand the depth of study.
