Publishers Description
Any child who has ever formed a simple mud pie with their fingers will take delight in hearing a parent read at bedtime, "Jesus, I feel close to You when I sink my hands in the mud...I remember how You smeared mud on the blind man's eyes--and then he could see " Any child who has ever scaled a tree will find himself pulled into the drama with passages such as, "Jesus, I feel close to You when I sit way high up in a tree...I remember how Zacchaeus climbed a tree to see You better--and You looked up and found him there " This charming, beautifully illustrated book invites children to compare their own experiences with vividly presented scenes from Jesus' life such as working side-by-side with Joseph in his carpenter's shop, being "lost" in a crowd, healing a blind man with mud, and, finally, Jesus' death and resurrection. Children of every age and denomination will draw intimately closer to Jesus, and receive timely reassurances in the struggles, fears, challenges and victories that face us all--big and small. With stirring illustrations by Phyllis Saroff creatively melding our times with ancient Bible times, this book is like no other.

Reviews - What do customers think about Jesus, I Feel Close To You?

A Special friendship for your child  Feb 5, 2005
In her newly released book, Jesus I Feel Close to You (Paulist Press, November 2004, hardcover, 32 pages), author and art teacher Denise Stuckey employs images from a child's everyday life to help emphasize the importance of a close and personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

Combining soft and charming illustrations by Phyllis Saroff with the recurring theme "Jesus, I feel close to you..." Stuckey relates the instances that come about in a child's life to classic stories from the New Testament. Time spent helping Daddy at home relates to Jesus' childhood years working with Joseph in the carpenter's shop. A family picnic helps to recall the occasion of the miracle of the loaves and fishes. Climbing a tree reminds the child of the story of the diminutive Zacchaeus, who was so anxious to have a good view of Jesus that he climbed to the top of a nearby sycamore.

As parents, one of the greatest gifts we can bestow upon our children is the knowledge that whatever happens in life, we can always call upon our friendship with Jesus Christ. He is there for us in times of trial, as well as moments of triumph. Jesus I Feel Close to You underscores this perpetual presence and reminds the reader to call upon and nurture this special friendship. Its simple message of intimacy and trust are something you will want to share with your child time and again. A comprehensive list of Bible references at the end of the book provides a great resource for parents who want to go to the "source" for sharing these great stories with their families.
