MAITLAND, Fla., Aug. 15, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- The second installment of Rich Ablondi's series, "The Adventures in the Bible Zone," The Ball, The Bat, And The Unforgiving BRAT ($13.99, paperback, 9781625099563; $9.99, e-book, 9781625099570) shares one of Jesus' vital teachings to children. The author focuses on the foundational elements of forgiveness and grace, based on Matthew 18 in the Bible. Ablondi cleverly uses baseball, relatable characters and a funny storyline to adequately communicate the lesson to young readers.


"It seems as tough children are forced into a complex life," states the author. "Children need to return to a more simple life with basic life lessons. 'The Ball, The Bat, And The Unforgiving Brat' puts the characters in life situations that are easy to relate to. Like all the books in the series, this book is creatively written, brilliantly illustrated and enjoyable to read for children of all ages."

In addition to being a highly gifted and talented cartoonist /graphic designer, Rich Ablondi was a children's pastor for over twenty-five years. He developed a puppet ministry that allowed him to create several lessons/skits. The author expresses, "I realized that to some children God was not fun. Yet, in my own life, I found God to be very enjoyable. He cared for everything I cared about, no matter how minor my wants and needs. God cared about me. As an adult I still have a little boy mindset when it comes to having fun."
