A doctor called Luke, gathers stories and details about a man who had turned his world upside down – a man who changed his life and whose life had changed history. He writes them down in a letter to his friend Theo.

Dear Theo is a unique edition of Luke–Acts with specially commissioned illustrations, aimed at encouraging children and young people to read and engage with God’s story for themselves. This is an epic journey with Jesus, the Son of God, and his first followers.
