Eve Lockett studied English and Fine Art at Exeter University, graduating in 1979. Her creative writing has included stories, poetry, lyrics, and short drama sketches, some for radio. For eight years she worked with a Christian mission agency, producing and editing their publicity material - newssheets and audio-visuals. Eve was licensed as a lay reader in 1997, married and moved to Oxfordshire. For some years she has helped with an after-school club, involving regular biblical storytelling. She received a diploma in Biblical and Theological studies from Wycliffe Hall in 2001. Her first book for BRF, Tales of Grace, was published in May 2005, and her second Tales for the Prayer Journey, in 2007.
Story Box Bible Tales offers Bible stories accompanied by simple, everyday objects. Like a Generation Game conveyor belt, the objects act as memory aids for the children recalling the story, and this is followed by questions that help children to reflect further. The objects include simple things such as a paper crown to symbolise kingship, or a piece of blue fabric for water. A craft idea accompanies each story and completes each session.
