Reviews - What do customers think about The Voice: A Story of Faith and Trust?
Lots of laughs Jul 30, 2007
This book is full of great, funny commentary and cartoon illustrations of how God is always there for us. A great little book that really speaks to kids (though older people could get a good lesson out of it too) and it's the first thing I read to my class at the beginning of each school year. My own kids (5 and 4) read it over and over again, laughing at the pictures as they go.
The Voice: A story about faith and trust by R.W. Metlen May 22, 2007
One of the best books ever! Written as a if it were a children's picture book, it speaks volumes to adults. The simple message and delightful illustrations are powerful testimony both to human nature and God's love.
So True, So Simple Nov 10, 2006
I love how the illustrations are so simple and the narration is too. The author gives a difficult question in a simple way with a solution, but leaves you reflecting on how you will relate.
The Voice is one of truth Nov 7, 2006
I first came about this book through a good friend. We started using this book on Confirmation Retreats for high school adolescents, as a night-time closing prayer. We felt that many teens felt alone and like the were sinking. This story gave them hope that God--The Voice--will always be there...if they "just follow" the voice. We close up the prayer with the song "Voice of Truth" by Casting Crowns.
If you need hope or a place to find faith, you'll find it in this book.
I don't understand Jul 29, 2004
I read this whole book, and it's about a big booming voice coming out from nowhere to tell a guy to do things. But we never find out where the big voice is coming from, or who it is. I hope the next book clears this up.
