The Pumpkin Patch Parable Dec 26, 2006
A wonderful book to read to children. Liz Curtis Higgs has a God-given insight which she uses to provide quality Christian picture books.
Helps children understand some great concepts! Nov 29, 2006
My kids ages 2,3, and 4 love this book! (and the rest of the series) The Bible verses at the bottom of each page is a really nice touch. This past Halloween my oldest asked me to read her this book over and over again. She picked up a few great biblical concepts from our times of reading Pumpkin Patch Parable.
Great story--nothing to do with Halloween Oct 29, 2005
This is a great story that can help people of all ages, even though geared to children, understand the message of the Gospel in a creative way. This doesn't have to be associated with the celebration of Halloween. I know that many people who profess to be Christians still like to celebrate Halloween and feel that this story helps to tie it to their faith. That shouldn't make this a bad book for those who don't think Halloween has a place in the lives of Christians. Putting a face on a pumpkin to do something fun during fall harvest is a spiritually neutral activity. It just doesn't have to be about Halloween. I am glad that people like Ms Higgs take the time to do something positive for this time of year--something that takes the focus OFF of Halloween.
Just a thought on the book Oct 26, 2004
I think it's wonderful book and I'm a christian. Everything was made by god including pumpkins and carving pumpkins is fun. It does not have to be evil and the fact that you can do it and teach your child about god is wonderful. Just wondering if the people who judge the book as trying to turn evil into good buy christmas trees and decorate them?? Did you know that is also a Pagan tradition with roots not honoring god?? How many Christians buy and decorate Christmas trees?? I would say step back and look more closely at yourself before judging others. In the Bible we are not bound by law but by grace. How can anything that teaches about god be sinful?? It does not matter what people did thousands of years ago but it does matter that we honor god in our words and actions today. I don't see the harm in this book.
Halloween and Christ? Sep 30, 2003
I have to agree with the fact Christians are trying to make halloween something God wants. Halloween has been changed so it appears to be nothing but fun, however, it all started because some "high priests" long ago wanted to worship the lord of the dead! They taught that the souls of the wicked dead inhabited the bodies of living people. These people would then go scare people until they gave them food, shelter, and entertainment. They also carved faces in pumpkins to help scare the people. Do we really want to continue to support such a thing? In an attempt to get rid of Halloween, the Roman church moved All Saint Day to Nov.1st.... it didn't work.
