Abstract

The realm of Christian fantasy is not a form that is often used to deliver the gospel and other important lessons in The Bible. In my thesis, I will write and illustrate a retelling of the public domain stories, Briar Rose and Sleeping Beauty. My retelling will serve as a tribute to these stories but will present them in a new way and be told from a Christian and biblical point of view. My goal is to present the story of God’s armor, an important lesson for children, through this fairy tale in a fun, fantastic, and fulfilling way. The book will be 28 pages long, printed physically, and will tell the classic story in a new way to accompany the lesson of God’s armor. I want to teach through this familiar story the importance of valuing others and working hard to do what is right. At the end of the book, I will include the verses describing God’s armor that will be paralleled in the book. The intention of this is to spark conversation between parent and child when this book is being read, creating an intimate and real conversation about Christ with children between the ages of six to twelve.
