Sheep & Goat Go To The Ice Cream Parlor, based on the parable of the sheep and goats in Matthew chapter 25, has just released by The Global Institute For Transformation®.

"Sheep & Goat Go To The Ice Cream Parlor" conveys a vital message about living like Christ by contrasting Sheep's tremendous compassion for others with Goat's self-absorbed lifestyle. "The book provides an essential message about the joy of our salvation, and the importance of loving others," explains Tim Maurer, the book's author and president of the Global Institute For Transformation GIFT. "It's our hope that children, as well as parents, grandparents and Sunday School teachers, will be inspired to live more compassionate lives."

Key transformational messages in the book include, Discover The Sheer Joy Of Following Jesus, and Live Right (Don't Conform...Transformed), Learn Right (Study God's Word), Love Right (As Christ Loves Us), and Land Right (Inherit God's Kingdom).

In keeping with the book's theme, GIFT will use a portion of each sale of "Sheep & Goat Go To The Ice Cream Parlor" to fund innovative agricultural and water purification solutions for people around the world.

This illustrated, 46-page, full color book and a complementary line of merchandise are available on the GIFT web site.
