"A beautifully told and illustrated story of the life and ministry of Saint Patrick. Ned Bustard has done an amazing job."
-- Philip Freeman, author of St. Patrick of Ireland: A Biography and Fletcher Jones Chair of Western Culture at Pepperdine University's Seaver College
"While the source material is limited, what we do know of Patrick of Ireland is that he carried within himself a great passion for the good news of Jesus and a great love for the people of Ireland. Ned Bustard's delightful children's book Saint Patrick the Forgiver captures this gospel spirit of the Celtic missionary and, just for fun, weaves in a few of the charming legends connected to his amazing life."
-- Jeff Johnson, musician and composer
"This musical picture book tells the story of a saint transformed by the grace of God. Through his delightful illustrations and joyful rhymes, Ned Bustard introduces young readers to the life of Saint Patrick and reminds us that God can bring generations of fruit from one small seed of obedience."
-- Théa Rosenburg, coeditor of Wild Things and Castles in the Sky: A Guide to Choosing the Best Books for Children and blogger at Little Book, Big Story
"I can't wait to recommend and gift this beautiful book on the life of Saint Patrick. So many children (and adults) celebrate Saint Patrick's Day without knowing the faith and fortitude of this great saint. This treasure is the perfect collection of illustrations and verse incorporating Saint Patrick facts and legends. I will be recommending and gifting this to the grownups in my life too!"
-- Lisa Landis Blowers, host and producer of Kids Cookie Break radio program
Unwrapping Some Illustrations
Hello, my name is Patrick.
You may have heard my story.
I walked the span of Ireland
to tell of God’s great glory.
And with a wee green shamrock
I shared of the Three-in-One:
our God―the blessed mystery―
Father, Spirit, and the Son.
