“Whatever things were rightly said among all men, are the property of us Christians.” —Justin Martyr.

Finding the Truth in Story is an effort to find some of what has been rightly said among men and, through a Christian reading, return the property to its rightful owner. In this first volume, Tyrel Bramwell finds the Truth of God’s Word in twenty-five Grimm Brothers’ fairy tales, including classics such as The Frog King, Tom Thumb, and Cinderella.

What People are Saying

What John Granger (Hogwarts Professor) is to J.K. Rowling, Rev. Tyrel Bramwell is to Grimm’s Fairy Tales. The brilliance of Bramwell’s work is that he leaves the translation of the text alone and lets it stand on its own merit and from that merit he injects the truth of Christianity into the story, giving flesh to the bones of tales as old as time. The story pops out as always, yet there is a simplicity to the language so that a child can absorb what Bramwell is teaching. Finding the Truth in Story: Grimm’s Fairy Tales, Vol. I is a must have for the family library and for those times when your little one wants “…just one more story then I’ll go to sleep.”

Bramwell uses beautiful description and vivid imagery to connect the reader to the story and the story to reality–the realities that too many of us take for granted or discount as fantasy. Bramwell instead uses his created world to describe the life of faith. Fans of Tolkein and Lewis will feel right at home. Those who know the Bible well will pick up on plenty of insightful symbols used in the plot. Any reader who enjoys science fiction or fantasy genres will connect quickly with the characters and join them on their journeys.

Volume two of Finding the Truth in Story: Grimm’s Fairy Tales.

In this series, Bramwell is questing for the Christian truth in the stories of mankind: myths, legends, folklore, fairy tales, novels, etc. He’ll be searching for glimpses of truth that point to the Incarnate Word, Jesus Christ, or at the very least call to mind a portion of the revealed wisdom of God.

Like volume one, volume two will include twenty-five classic fairy tales, such as Rapunzel and Little Red Riding Hood, in an easy-to-read translation.
