Publisher's Summary

No one expected Barley to have an encounter with the Messiah. He was homeless, hungry, and struggling to survive in first-century Jerusalem. Most surprisingly, he was a dog. But through Barley's eyes, the story of a teacher from Galilee comes alive in a way we've never experienced before.

Barley's story begins in the home of a compassionate woodcarver and his wife, who find Barley as an abandoned, nearly drowned pup. Tales of a special teacher from Galilee are reaching their tiny village, but when life suddenly changes again for Barley, he carries the lessons of forgiveness and love out of the woodcarver's home and through the dangerous roads of Roman-occupied Judea.

On the outskirts of Jerusalem, Barley meets a homeless man and petty criminal named Samid. Together Barley and his unlikely new master experience fresh struggles and new revelations. Soon Barley is swept up into the current of history, culminating in an unforgettable encounter with the truest master of all as he bears witness to the greatest story ever told.

    Story
    "A story of love, forgiveness and hope beautifully told"

    I enjoyed every moment of this story. Beautifully narrated by the author with imagination so much that I could close my eyes and visualize every scene. Well done! Not forgetting at the same time to share the gospel message.

    Story
    "Being there with Barley"
    Would you listen to The Dog Who Was There again? Why?

    Yes, I would listen to Barley's story again because it was such an encouragement to me. I could see my own life in Barley's. I could feel his rejection, his love for his owners, both good and bad. Life deals all of us some hard blows but faith always wins, as Barley learned.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Seeing and hearing things through a dog's eyes and ears. I was in love with Barley by the end of the story.


    Which character – as performed by Ron Marasco – was your favorite?

    Micah


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Stay close to the master, and follow in his footsteps.


    Any additional comments?

    This was a great story for young and old. The narrative of the "Kind Man" was amazing. I could almost see Barley watching with tears in his eyes as the Saviour was crucified. I only wish he could have been there at the time of the resurrection. Perhaps there will be a sequel including that event and perhaps Pentecost.
