My Friend Jesus by Kathryn Slattery


My Friend Jesus by Kathryn Slattery

Introduce your children to the greatest friend they'll ever know. All Christian parents want their children to know and love the Lord. My Friend Jesus not only tells little ones the gospel story about Jesus, but also gently introduces them to a personal relationshipwith Jesus. Written in fresh, clear, easy-to-understand language for children of all ages and denominations, this beautifully illustrated book ends with a tender prayer that guides children into that life-changing friendship with Jesus. Share the good news with your children, and let them discover the greatest friend of all. Originally published as The Gospel for Kids, this book sold more than 100,000 copies. This new book will feature beautiful new art and lightly edited text. One of the best books of Jesus for young people I have encountered. -Madeleine L'Engle, Newbery Award-winning author of the children's classic A Wrinkle in Time A magnificent piece of writing, making the Gospel so plain and at the same time losing none of its beauty. -Dr. Norman Vincent Peale, author of the international bestseller The Power of Positive Thinking and founder of Guidepostsmagazine I have long admired Kathryn Slattery's gift of talking to kids about God-not talking down to them, but with them. In her new book, My Friend Jesus, she gives invaluable guidance to parents on how to bring their child into a relationship with the Lord, one that cannot start soon enough in our oft-troubled times. If you are concerned about a child's spiritual welfare, you must buy this book. -Edward Grinnan, editor in chief of Guideposts magazine and author ofThe Promise of Hope Kathryn Slattery has told the story of Jesus so simply, briefly, cutting right to the essentials, managing to mix the profoundest truth with humor, talking to children without talking down to them. My Friend Jesus goes on our grandparent bookshelf with great anticipation. -Elizabeth and John Sherrill, coauthors of bestselling inspirational classics The Hiding Place and The Cross and the Switchblade My Friend Jesus ends in a prayer, but reading this beautifully illustrated book aloud to a child would be an experience of prayer itself. -Rick Hamlin, executive editor of Guideposts magazine and author of 10 Prayers You Can't Live Without Meets national education standards.
