    1. It takes a great theologian to write a children's book.Sproul bases this story on Zechariah 3:1-5 and brings it to a child's level to illustrate how Christ covers us in His righteousness. The questions at the end are a helpful guide for parents to continue the discussion with older children. What a beautiful way to introduce children to the deep truths of God.

    2. Beautiful illustrations, with a well told story, but unfortunately very reformed in theology. Which is excellent, since it's written by and for Protestants, but sad because we have to get rid of it. I had to skip over a few paragraphs when reading it to my brothers. It's supposedly told by a Scottish grandfather, so if you can do accents it would make an amazing read-aloud.

    4. The priest with Dirty Clothes was written by R. C. Sproul and illustrated by Justin Gerard. The two combine their talents very well in this book- I was very glad to receive a copy of this book free from Ligonier.When little Darby and Campbell play in the mud and get themselves covered, Grandpa has a story to tell them. There once was a young priest who was on his way to preach his first sermon before the King. This young priest is wearing his new, clean clothes, and the roads are very muddy, and [...]

    5. It is always a joy to come across a book that helps to explain the gospel in a way that children can grasp. This is especially nice when the telling of the story brings to light important and often-neglected aspects of the good news. The Prince with Dirty Clothes is one such book. This little book by R.C. Sproul presents the picture of Christ’s imputed righteousness for the believer. Paralleling the scene in Zechariah 3, Sproul tells the story of a priest whose clothes were too filthy for hi [...]

    6. Among the hundreds of books I have reviewed over the years this is the second time that I reviewed a children’s book (the first was God's Servant Job: A Poem with a Promise). I am reviewing this book because I really enjoyed The Priest with Dirty Clothes by Christian theologian R.C. Sproul. My three little girls who are all pre-school age also enjoyed this book very much and the book has led to deeper conversations about spiritual matters.Sproul bases this story loosely on Zechariah 3:1-5 of J [...]

    7. As a parent I think it’s very important to teach your children how to treat people well. I really loved this book because it retold a well know bible story in a way for kids to understand and learn from it. The story is about the priest who had to do a sermon in front of the king. On his way to the castle he fell in a puddle of mud and got dirty. He felt horrible about his clothes and tried to clean him self up. When he couldn’t get clean he still went to the castle to preach his sermon. Whe [...]

    8. I read this to three boys ages 9-13, probably a little older than the target age. They followed it and enacted with it well, though I don't think they were crazy about it. What I most appreciated was that it got them thinking. I told them up front that it was an allegory so they would stop me and tell the meaning behind the story. They seemed pleased that they had figured it out and I was pleased that they were thinking and that they could catch the parallels. However, I was puzzled by a couple [...]

    9. I loved this book. This was a simple level of teaching the truth of Christ's righteousness imputed to us. I read it to my 2 1/2 year old and he listened intently the few nights I read it. But I had the opportunity to read this to my friends daughter who is about 6, and the discussion questions in the back were fantastic! It really fostered great back and forth questions and answers.Truly every book of RC Sproul I've read thus far have not disappointed. I am grateful to have such biblically sound [...]

    10. This may be the best children's book I have ever read. From time to time I'll gather the kids at church or at our home around me and read it. I have not been able to read it once without tears welling up in my eyes.

    11. One of my favorite children's books of all time! I cried when I read it the first time, and still get teary when I think about it's message of imputation and how beautifully this story is told for children.

    12. I previewed this book to read to my children. My only complaint is that I didn't like that the priest got dirty by accident through no fault of his own. I don't think children will realize that is not true in relation to sin.

    13. Obviously, the story misses out on a lot of aspects of God's love and forgiveness, and the change that was made when Jesus took our sins, but the allegory is well done for what it is. I appreciate the picture of exchanged clothes, for our exchanged records.
