This beautifully-illustrated hardback book by well-known singer and TV presenter Randall Goodgame is based on the parable in Luke 12 v 35-38.

It teaches children that Jesus will return, and when he does, there will be an amazing party where... SURPRISE!... he will serve his faithful servants!

Jesus didn’t tell us when that party will be, but we can make sure that we’re ready for it by loving him and loving his people while we wait.

Accompanying colouring and activity book available.

It is a rare and wonderful thing to find someone so immensely talented who submits that talent to Jesus by sharing the gospel with children. For years, Randall has been looking young people in the eye and telling them—through song and story and good humor—the astonishing truth of the gospel. It’s no surprise that Randall's book about surprises does that very thing too.

The Bible is filled with mystery, paradox, and surprise after surprise. Who can communicate this deep reality to children better than the inimitable and uniquely gifted Randall Goodgame? Children will love this book, and their parents will too. In reading this together, the whole family will he brought back again and again to the biggest surprise of all: the good news of Jesus the Servant-King.

Kelly Keller

Writer for Story Warren and The Gospel Coalition

This book takes what might be a frightening concept—the unexpected nature of Jesus’ return—and makes plain that we as Christians may look forward to that day with eagerness! Far from the empty bumper sticker theology of “Look Busy,” this book reminds us that we might take part in the Lord’s joyful work until he comes.
