He is known as the “Good Thief,” but the story of Dismas, and his dramatic path from depravity to goodness, has been largely hidden until now. In this inspiring and dazzling picture book, Raymond Arroyo shares the unknown tale of a thief who encountered grace during a robbery–only to discover it again, years later, when he needed it most. Bridging the gap between Christmas and Easter, the story of the good thief proves that no one is every truly lost. Based on the writings of Augustine, John Chrysostom, and a smattering of ancient legends, THE THIEF WHO STOLE HEAVEN reminds each of us that mercy endures and hope lasts to the very end. Hardcover.
