WonderFull: Ancient Psalms Ever NewISBN: 9781948130745
Your children may know of the psalms, but with WonderFull by best-selling author Marty Machowski, young readers learn to use the whole book of the Psalms to pray, worship, and find help through the challenges life is certain to bring.
Oliver and his grandfather spend days sitting in front of an old Oak tree, reading through the book of Psalms together. As Oliver's curiosity about God evolves into a deep and abiding faith, his grandfather continues to read to him and pray with him, discovering together the beauty of the Psalms.
Even when Oliver's grandpa is no longer able to read with him, Oliver continues to cherish the Psalms-especially in times of trial-and he imagines what it will be like to see God face to face and his grandfather again in heaven.
Ancient psalms are made ever new in this beautifully designed children's book, and kids will grow to love and appreciate this book of the Bible.
As a best-selling author to numerous books and curricula for kids, Marty Machowski draws on over thirty years of experience as a pastor to provide Scripture-based truth and hope for young readers. Machowski doesn't just help kids become familiar with the psalms. He helps them apply what they are learning to their own lives, which is a gift that will continue to deepen their walk with Christ as they grow older.
