Other themes covered in the series are Missionary Tales and Remarkable Conversions; Honouring God and Dramatic Deliverances; Faithful Witnesses, Childhood Faith and God's Care. Joel Beeke and Diana Kleyn have taken a selection of real life incidents and fictional narratives and developed them into a series of devotional books for children aged 7-12. Scriptural references throughout the book use the King James Version of the Bible and the questions are also based on this version. The stories themselves include a good mixture of historical adventure, childhood experiences, remarkable instances of conversion and dramatic, edge of your seat, rescues from danger.
Publishers Description The mountains are dark and looming as the lightening splits across the sky. The forest offers shelter and in the distance the traveller spots a lamp. Rushing towards the door he doesn't realise that someone has planned this journey - there is a woman in the house who needs to hear about her loving Savior, Jesus Christ. God has sent the traveller to tell her about himself. There are lots of stories in this book. Read about the thunderstorm, some hidden treasure and a Bible in a suitcase as well as many other stories about how we should live for God and read his word.

Reviews - What do customers think about How God Used A Thunderstorm (Building on the Rock Series)?
A must-have resource for those who work with children Feb 24, 2010
We purchased every book in this series. One student (11) goes to the bookshelf and reads through them on a regular basis. This same student marks the stories he likes and insistently says, "Please read this one & then share it with the class". Every book has numerous stories tagged for my attention with Post-It Notes. If that isn't a glowing endorsement of the series, I don't know what could be better.
Great read-aloud book for the younger ones and excellent for independent reading with the older students during choice or reading time.
Great for Devotionals Feb 3, 2010
I bought the whole set of these a couple years ago. We read them for devotionals at night. They have short little stories that usually didn't take long but they make you think. So they are great if you have a family of mixed ages. Once in a while there will be a long story but all the stories are marked whether they are short or long. The stories are also based in the past so you are learning a bit of history as well. We learned a lot through reading them.
