The story of Daniel and the Lions’ Den teaches children many things… It teaches them about praying; it teaches them about Daniel’s faithfulness to God, and God’s faithfulness to Daniel; and it teaches them that God is the real king of everyone everywhere.

But if you peel back another layer, you’ll see that like the rest of the Old Testament, it also points to Jesus.

This stunningly illustrated retelling of Daniel and the lions’ den helps children to see Jesus in the story of Daniel. It challenges children to spot the Jesus moments by looking out for the hidden lion symbols. It goes on to explain the parallels between Jesus and Daniel, so that children can see the gospel heart of the whole Bible.

Mary K. Mohler, Author, Growing in Gratitude

“Jesus and the Lions’ Den is a delightful story that makes a beeline to Christ from the teachings of the Old Testament. Alison Mitchell carefully and cleverly ties Daniel’s life story to Jesus moments that will serve to help her young readers grasp the exciting truth of the gospel.”

Dan DeWitt, Associate Professor of Apologetics & Applied Theology, Cedarville University;

“Alison has written an outstanding book to help children (and adults too) understand how Jesus is the hero of every story in the Bible. The title tells the whole tale, “Jesus and the Lions’ Den.” With the signature illustrations that we’ve come to expect from Catalina, this story comes to life to show how Jesus is the King of everyone everywhere.”

Barbara Reaoch, Author, A Jesus Christmas

“The Bible tells one grand story about Jesus. “Jesus and the Lions’ Den” promises to stir your child’s heart in the discovery of this truth. Alison Mitchell knows God and she knows kids.”

Tim Chester, Pastor in Boroughbridge, UK; author, Enjoying God

“Jesus and the Lion’s Den is a delightful retelling of the story of Daniel with beautiful illustrations. But what really makes it special is the way it invites children to spot the clues that point to the story’s bigger meaning. We start with Daniel, but we end with the faithfulness of Jesus and his rescue of God’s people.”
