Item description for Because Nothing Looks Like God by Lawrence Kushner, Karen Kushner & Dawn Majewski...

Explores questions young children may have about God and God's work in the world.

Publishers Description
What is God like?

Mixing sparks of curiosity and spiritual imagination, this wondrous book lights children's creativity and shows how God is with us every day, in every way.

In this, their first collaborative book, husband-and-wife team Lawrence and Karen Kushner combine their expertise to help introduce children to the possibilities of spiritual life. Real-life examples of happiness and sadness -- from goodnight stories, to the hope and fear felt the first time at bat, to the closing moments of someone's life -- invite parents and children to explore, together, the questions we all have about God, no matter what our age.

Three poetic spiritual stories will delight children of all ages:
-- "Where Is God?"
-- "What Does God Look Like?"
-- "How Does God Make Things Happen?"

Lawrence Kushner, author, lecturer and spiritual leader, is regarded as one of the most creative religious thinkers and writers in America. A commentator on National Public Radio's All Things Considered, he has focused us on spiritual renewal with wisdom and humor. Through his books and lectures, people of every faith and background have found inspiration and new strength for spiritual search and growth. It has been said that some spiritual leaders blend religion and psychology to help us walk better on the ground, but Lawrence Kushner draws on the wisdom of the mystics to help us dance better on the ceiling.

Kushner's acclaimed books include I'm God; You're Not: Observations on Organized Religion & Other Disguises of the Ego; Honey from the Rock: An Easy Introduction to Jewish Mysticism; Invisible Lines of Connection: Sacred Stories of the Ordinary; The Book of Letters: A Mystical Hebrew Alphabet; Jewish Spirituality: A Brief Introduction for Christians; and In God's Hands, an inspiring fable for children, with Gary Schmidt (all Jewish Lights).

Kushner served as rabbi at Congregation Beth El in Sudbury, Massachusetts, for almost thirty years; he is currently the Emanu-El scholar at Congregation Emanu-El in San Francisco, and an adjunct faculty member at Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion. He is fascinated by graphic design and computers (designing most of his Jewish Lights books). He enjoys Mozart, hanging around sailboats, and making his granddaughters giggle.

Lawrence Kushner currently resides in Boston Sanfrancisco San Franci, in the state of Massachusetts. Lawrence Kushner was born in 1943.

Reviews - What do customers think about Because Nothing Looks Like God?

A children's theology book to cherish  Dec 29, 2007
Introduced to this book a few years ago by a friend's rabbi during a children's sabbath celebration, my husband and I were quite impressed. The art is so inviting to look at. But more importantly, the content is worth sharing with children you want to share a positive image of faith with very early on -- whether they are children who share your own religion or are in another religion that you respect.

We are Christian and have now shared this lovely book with children in our congregation, children in other Christian denominations (both Catholic and Protestant) and children being raised with Jewish traditions. We hope it will be a blessing to many -- adults and children -- as it has been to us.
Doesn't Talk Down to Your Kids  Dec 4, 2000
I've looked many years for a book that is spiritual, but doesn't talk down to kids, to share with my many grandchildren. There is another: "God's Paintbrush" but we have read it so many times that I needed something new. This is it! A wonderful, delightful exploration of who God is, and what God does in the world through us. Cuddle up to your grandchildren with this one.
