Item description for God Speaks to Us in Water Stories: Bible Stories (God Speaks to Us Series) by Mary Ann Sullivan...
Overview God Speaks to Us in Water Stories brings to life for children the Bible's message and shows how God connects with humans through one of the most powerful metaphors in the Bible-the cleansing, healing waters of baptism. This book encourages children to see themselves in the Bible's stories, which are not only the Word of God but our stories as well. The people-oriented illustrations that accompany these stories also help children see their connection to God by emphasizing childrens' roles in carrying out God's Word, as trusting (children of the Exodus), as mediating grace (the servant girl, Mariah, in the story of Naaman), as helping their parents (the story of Noah). Each water story ends with an upbeat illustration showing humans celebrating God's Word alive and at work in their lives. God Speaks to Us in Water Stories affirms children, as well as the life-giving, healing, and revealing powers of water. Using the texts of the NAB and the RSV, the author adapts them so they speak to all children of that which is essential for human life, but also vital for spiritual life: water. Both children and adults will be attracted to the imaginative, full-color illustrations and the simple stories that are so much a part of our legacy. For children ages 5-9.
