Product Description

Firebird is a children's book that parallels the life of Samantha Crawford, a storybook artist in the inspiring new film Unconditional who has lost sight of God's love.
Firebird is a bright orange baby oriole who just loves the sunshine, but whenever a storm blows in, he frets and asks Mama why God allows the rain to take the sun away. Only when Firebird is old enough, does he venture up through the thunder and lightning to see what's on the other side. With a rough flight that makes him want to give up, Firebird rises above the storm to discover the sun shining where it has always been---and learns that God never lets the storm take the sun away. With this truth, Firebird basks in the sunshine, but also learns to rejoice in the rain.

Publisher's Description

What if God’s love were like the sun, constant and unchanging? What if one day you realized nothing could take that away?

Firebird is a bright orange baby oriole who just loves the sunshine. But whenever a storm blows in, he frets and asks Mama why God allows the rain to take the sun away. When Firebird is finally old enough, his mother gently instructs him to fly up through the thunder and lightning to see what’s on the other side.

It’s a rough flight, and just when he’s about to give up, Firebird rises above the storm to discover the sun shining where it always had been.

God never lets the storm take the sun away. With that truth in his heart, Firebird continues to bask in the sunshine, but just as important, he learns to rejoice in the rain.

Firebird is a children’s book that parallels the life of Samantha Crawford, a storybook artist in the inspiring new film Unconditional (scheduled for a theatrical launch in fall 2012) who has lost sight of God’s love.

Publishers Weekly

Fairytale motifs, Disney-style illustrations (Corley and Vollmer are Disney animators) and theological questions combine in this tale of Firebird, a big-eyed baby oriole who "just lived for the sunshine," and cannot understand why God would "let the storm take the sun away." Full-bleed, full-spread paintings depict a bird-centered world of sunny days with luxurious green vines and hills, and stormy days with purplish gray clouds showering streaks of rain. While Firebird's mother gives initial evasive answers to her unhappy bird's questions, eventually she encourages him to ride into the storm and learn the answer for himself. One painting shows terrified Firebird dodging lightning and buffeted by powerful winds, while the next page reveals Firebird's ecstatic face witnessing the glowing rays above the clouds, making him realize the storm has not eliminated the sun. Uncomplicated illustrations and plot-line enable McCorkle (director of the film Unconditional) and Parker (A Night Night Prayer) to engage the complicated theological question of why an all-powerful God allows bad things to happen, and offer the consoling message of God's eternal presence even during stormy times. Ages 4-up. (Oct.) 2012 Reed Business Information
