Christmas Idea #8 - God’s Mighty Acts in Creation by Starr Meade

513985 Nature reveals majestic truths about God – truths that help us know him better.  God’s Mighty Acts in Creation helps children recognize those wonders, and what they tell us about their Creator.

As Starr Meade, author of Mighty Acts of God, guides young readers through the six days of creation, she points to how creation displays the wisdom and power of God. She also helps readers explore and apply other references to nature in the Bible by answering questions such as: What did Jesus mean when he claimed to be the true vine? How is all flesh like grass, and how should that affect the way we live? What was God revealing about himself when he made the sun stand still for Joshua? Each reading includes a key verse, stimulating questions, and engaging activities, all geared toward elementary-aged children.

Whether parents use this book for family devotions or  children read it for themselves, all will learn how God’s glory, wisdom, sovereignty, and power are revealed in all of creation. A companion volume to God’s Mighty Acts in Salvation.

1093 Starr Meade served for ten years as the director of children's ministries in a local church and taught Latin and Bible for eight years in a Christian school. A graduate of Arizona College of the Bible and the author of two other books, including Training Hearts, Teaching Minds, Meade currently teaches home school students. She and her husband make their home in Mesa, Arizona, and she is mother to three grown children and three grandsons.

Heidi Says . . . This book is set up as a child’s devotional book with a short reading for each day.  It’s divided into sections – one for each of the six days of creation.  Each devotion cover a 2-page spread and starts with a Scripture passage.  Following that is the main reading section which is written in a personal style and quite appropriate for 8-12 year olds.  Each day’s selection ends with an “As for me and my house. . . “ section which contains both questions and ideas to get your child thinking further (and, in some cases, acting on the reading). 

This is a neat little book and would make a wonderful Christmas gift for that 'tween in your life.  This book is available from Crossway and many internet retailers.

NOTE: I received a free copy of this book from Crossway Books & Bibles in exchange for my review.
