Timeless humor for children and adults Jan 17, 2008
Cows in Church is an uplifting, humorous, and profound series of sermons about and for children--but it's so much more than that. I am not a minister, but I return again and again to this book for reflections on Life. I recommend it to lay persons---although I am sure it will have great usefulness for Christian ministers in general because the Rev. Dr. Fannin includes all sorts of aids for ministry with her sermons. This is a book that sits by my bedside. I pick it up to remind me about why the church is more than its history, why Jesus is always the center of everything, and why my foibles are not as troubling to God as they are to me. I think Cows in Church would also resonate with teens, as long as you let the book speak for itself (because they're teens!)!!
SUPER!!!! Sep 30, 2005
What a fabulous resource - in great condition - at a great price. I am very pleased!
Cows in Church gets Rave ReMoos! Nov 29, 1999
Cows in Church is a marvelous collection of children's sermons. It appeals to children with their capacity to grasp spiritual yet difficult concepts without overcomplicating them because of its refreshing use of modern culture to support its points. There is also in each sermon suggested props with which to make the point, e. g. a camera with fast film. I recommend this book to any minister or layperson who wants to bring God's Word to children. Cows in Church is not only simple a collection of children's sermons; it also speaks to adults. When I began the book, I could not put it down. It spoke to this adult woman like a concise, substantive collection of myths or fables, made me feel as if I had actually been to church. Besides being engrossing and entertaining, I learned a lot of Biblical history, a delightful surprise. For example, I had been told that Jesus threw the money changers from the temple because they were defiling the house of God. Cows in Chuch teaches the specifics of money gauging and fraud that went on in the temple. This makes Jesus' not only anger understandable but almost required. I recommend this book not only to children, but to any adult who wants to be jolted, surprised, tickled and grateful by this refreshing presentation of Biblical stories and truths.
