Jesus came to teach people how to love. He came to heal us from everything that hurts us, and to fill our lives with joy, hope, forgiveness, and peace. And the more you get to know Jesus, the more youll discover that this can be your life too.
Easter Love Letters from God, written by Glenys Nellist and illustrated by Sophie Allsopp, guides children and families through Holy Week with seven beautifully illustrated Bible stories. Following each story the child will find his or her own letter from God. Children will love the excitement of opening the letters and parents will love how the letters elaborate on the Bible stories being told. Each message gives the child a sense of wonder as they discover what happened leading up to Jesus resurrection on Easter Sunday. A very special Bible verse, entitled Gods Wonderful Words to You will accompany each story and letter. Much more than a memory verse, each carefully chosen promise will be Gods very own personal words of love, encouragement, and hope.
Glenys Nellist was born and raised in a little village in northern England. Her stories and poems have been published in childrens magazines where her writing reflects a deep passion for bringing the Bible to life for young children. Glenys lives in Grand Rapids, Michigan, with her husband, David.
Sophie Allsopp grew up in a small English village and Hong Kong, where she particularly enjoyed living in a hotel and going to school on a tram. After studying for her illustration degree, Sophie won several awards and has now been illustrating for over 20 years. She lives in England with her husband, son, and a cat called Sadie.
Jes1 Stars Out Of 5Theological IssuesMarch 29, 2018JesQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0I purchased this book to read the week leading up to Easter. There are some problems with what this book communicates. For instance, in the Gloomy Garden story, it states, Father, are you there? Do I have to die? Is there any other way we can teach the world about heaven. The problem here is that Jesus didnt die to teach us about heaven. He died as a sacrifice for our sins, once and for all. These two things are not the same.
The love letters take liberties in explaining how God feels. If scripture doesnt tell us these details, why are we assuming them? The love letter in The Darkest Day story states that God cried when Jesus died. It states that God felt alone. Scripture does not indicate this. All scripture tells us is that God turned his back on Jesus. The author is assuming what God thought and in that way is placing herself in Gods shoes.
This book will not be used again in our home. Our children even noticed the problems.
AmyL5 Stars Out Of 5Easter Love Letters From GodFebruary 21, 2018AmyLQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Steeped in scripture, Nellist has crafted a book that helps us share the story of Easter in an age-appropriate way.Easter Love Letters from God takes you from the Israelites shouting Hosana as Jesus rides in on a donkey to the super surprise of the resurrection.
My daughter and I sat down and read the book in one sitting. But this collection of seven Bible stories is also perfect to use as part of family devotions. Each story is based onscripture and told in language that even my little 3-year-old could understand. As we walked through the pages, Sarabeth was able to put back into words what I had just read to her.
I think my daughter's favorite part of the story is the letter from God. At the end of each story, Nellist has crafted a letter to be read to your child as though it's from God. Each letter helps your child understand how the story relates to them. Each time my daughter would lift the flap on the letter, and I began with "Dear Sarabeth" she would squeal in delight and say "It's a letter for me?!?"
As the story in the book progresses, the last letter gives your child an opportunity to respond to God in faith. It's a great way to share the gospel story with your child, and then give them a chance to say whether or not they want to live their life for God.
The last page of the book gives your child the space to write their own letter to God. It's a great way to help your child learn how to respond to what God is doing in their life as they learn to relate to the stories in the Bible.
I received a copy of this book from the author. This review is my own, honest opinion.
Treenz5 Stars Out Of 5Gorgeous book!February 10, 2018TreenzQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Another treat from Glenys Nellist! I love this series of 'Love Letter' books and this one, like the others is fantastic. This time focusing stories on Jesus journey to the cross and resurrection, with beautiful letters from God to the reader reminding of God's great love through everything Jesus went through. It starts off with Jesus entering Jerusalem, then Jesus washing the disciple's feet, the last supper, gethsemane, crucifixion, burial and then resurrection.
These books are so precious! I highly recommend all of them - what a great way to bring alive stories of the Bible for children.
Please note that I was sent a copy of this book for purposes of review, but all opinions expressed are entirely my own.
