Maggie Seeks the Kingdom of God
Finally! A book that has all the answers a child may have regarding End Times prophecy - and more importantly, it's explained in a way they can fully understand! The author has also done a wonderful job of supporting everything with scripture, further drawing a child to their Bible for more! Additionally, this book has some of the best illustrations I've ever seen in a children's book, fully capturing the essence of the little girl as she seeks answers about the kingdom of God from her mother. This book is a 'must-have' for your children and makes a great gift for others.
A Thought-provoking book! Jul 3, 2007
What an amazing book! Our kids loved the illustrations and asked questions with every turn of the page. My 4-year-old is even understanding the meaning of a mediator and how Jesus serves that role in God's plan. This book will no doubt provoke questions among adults that may be reading this book to their kids, as it is a topic that has been neglected over the years. The Kingdom of God was Jesus' favorite topic, and this book sheds light on just how easy it is to understand if we have the passion that Maggie had to ask questions, study, and learn. Again, an awesome book!
Important work. May 10, 2007
Amazing work! I was happy to receive this book and am excited for others to as well. Consistent with the message of Jesus and geared for a critical audience. The illustrations are wonderful - some of of which I would like to have in my home. Highly recommended.
Excellent Book May 3, 2007
This is an excellent children's book with gorgeous illustrations. It shares the hope of Jesus's return with kids in a way they can understand. The pictures are absolutely beautiful and there are nice questions for discussion with your child at the end
Maggie is rediscovering the Christian Gospel Apr 25, 2007
Maggie Seeks the Kingdom of God is dynamite, if read intelligently and with a view to defining the Christian Gospel. Jesus made an intelligent reception of the Kingdom of God (word of the Kingdom, Matt. 13:19) a prerequisite for repentance and being forgiven (Mark 4:11, 12 says it all). Some find this rather shocking. They think that repentance and forgiveness are based solely on Jesus' death and resurrection. But Maggie and all, young and old, need to start by believing the command of Jesus in Mark 1:14, 15. This is Jesus' first imperative, and very much neglected by Protestants who think that Romans is the only place to find the Gospel! Angela Hays Moore places before the very young the necessary first ingredient in the saving Gospel, the Kingdom of God. I hope that this author will follow up (assisted by her excellent illustrator) with other theological and instructional gems, which will put all the Maggies there are in a position to read the NT with understanding, starting where Jesus and Paul always started, that is, with the Gospel of the Kingdom, the only hope for us individully and for the world. Maggie will be among the first to start the avalanche of new understanding which will result in an abandonment of all the so called "going to heaven" language used by churches. Maggie will learn rather to define the Christian goal, as Jesus always did, as inheriting the earth and the future Kingdom of God.
