Press reviews for: Bible Stories in Cockney Rhyming Slang

International Journal of Children's Spirituality

Keith Park's use of cockney rhyming slang is certainly a bold attempt to bring stories from the Bible to the attention of both young and old today... It is primarily a resource for teachers and especially those working with teenagers who respond well to the power of rhyme and enjoy performance as a way of expressing themselves to their peers.
