"What a blessing for kids to grow up understanding Gods varied promisesconditional or unconditional, given to one individual, to Gods people, or to all humanity. This book is clear, profound, helpful, and at every point grounded with faith and confidence in who God is. A tremendous resource!"
The family is the place for dazzling kids with the glories of God. Gods Promises is a great tool for doing just that. This engaging, attractively illustrated book teaches not only the promises of the Bible, but also the character of the God who makes and keeps his promises. Avoiding theological triteness, Sally Michael distinguishes between conditional and unconditional promises, promises broadly focused and more pointedly intended. Along the way are thoughtful questions and meaningful activities for kids. If you want to bring the delights of God to your children, get this book.
What does it mean to trust God? It's much more than a vague feeling that everything will turn out fine. It begins with learning God's Promises. The LORD does what he says. Even better, he has said a great deal about what he will do. Learning about God's Promises will greatly help believers of all ages. They are the concrete expression of God's character and the everyday validation of his power. These truths will push you beyond superficial faith and deepen your relationship with Christ. This book is a powerful expression of Biblical truth for children. Our church has used the Sunday School curriculum based on the same material. Without fail, it has deepened the faith of teacher and child. Now in book format, these powerful concepts can easily be used in a home setting. Children deserve this kind of foundation upon which to build their faith.
In her book, Gods Promises, Sally Michael paints a clear and wondrous picture of Gods promises. It thrilled my soul as I read it, and I can t wait to teach it to my grandchildren! She does not sugarcoat any of the more difficult promises, but explains them in a way that shows a high view of God and gives people, even little people, great confidence and hope in what God is doing. Gods Promises is an amazing teaching tool for parents and those teaching children in church settings. I highly recommend it.
"I have worked with Sally for 30 years. I love how Bible saturated she is. Promises without power disillusion children. Goodness without greatness grows thin."
