Item description for God Speaks to Us in Dreams and Visions: Bible Stories (God Speaks to Us Series) by Mary Ann Sullivan & Marygrace Antkowski...
Overview Grouped around the theme of dreams and visions, God Speaks to Us in Dreams and Visions reveals for children ages 5-10 how God speaks to us through our world, through our history and our literature, and through other people, in our own hearts and lives, in our waking and sleep, and in our everyday activities. The Bible tells us that some of the greatest saints of all times saw and heard the voice of God and God's messengers in the surrender of dreams and in the faith required of the visionary. This experience recurs in the Bible, in stories that tell us how the ordinary reveals the extraordinary. God Speaks to Us in Dreams and Visions, with its beautiful and imaginative illustrations, is a collection of eight Bible stories. Here children learn how God guards Joseph from harm and prepares for the future of Israel; how God speaks through dreams to his prophet Samuel; how God explains to Daniel the writing on the wall; how God calls the young Mary to be a model disciple; and how God rescues Peter from prison through a vision that enables him to better understand his mission for all times. God is as near to us as our dreams and our visions we have for ourselves and our world; that is the meaning of these stories, and a powerful reminder that our God is named Emmanuel, God-with-us.
