Grouped around the theme of dreams and visions, God Speaks to Us in Dreams and Visions reveals for children ages 5-10 how God speaks to us through our world, through our history and our literature, and through other people, in our own hearts and lives, in our waking and sleep, and in our everyday activities. The Bible tells us that some of the greatest saints of all times saw and heard the voice of God and God's messengers in the surrender of dreams and in the faith required of the visionary. This experience recurs in the Bible, in stories that tell us how the ordinary reveals the extra-ordinary. God Speaks to Us in Dreams and Visions, with its beautiful and imaginative illustrations, is a collection of eight Bible stories. Here children learn how God guards Joseph from harm and prepares for the future of Israel; how God speaks through dreams to his prophet Samuel; how God explains to Daniel the writing on the wall; how God calls the young Mary to be a model disciple; and how God rescues Peter from prison through a vision that enables him to better understand his mission for all times. God is as near to us as our dreams and our visions for ourselves and our world; that is the meaning of these stories, and a powerful reminder that our God is named Emmanuel, God-with-us. God Speaks to Us in Dreams and Visions is a complement to the two previous volumes in the series God Speaks to Us in Water Stories and God Speaks to Us in Feeding Stories.?As someone involved in religious education, I understand the value of good stories. These are good stories. And, clustered around their well developed theme, they are a well-spring for building or supplementing a Sunday School curriculum.? Kate Fetterman Director of Religious Education Madison, WI?Skillfully crafted to capture the imagination of children, the biblical texts are adapted to a younger audience and are combined with vivid and colorful illustrations to provide a richness of biblical images and understanding that will remain for a lifetime. This book shares the fundamental biblical insight that God's own vision and dreams for us are always greater than any we could ever begin to imagine or dream for ourselves or for those we love.? Judith M. Ryan, Ph.D. The Catholic University of America?Once again Professor Mary Ann Getty-Sullivan carefully combines her biblical expertise with a gentle tenderness to produce an expressive third volume in her children?s series.... The volume is enriched and completed by the impressive illustrations of Marygrace Dulski Antkowski.? Judith Schubert, R.S.M. Georgian Court College?These richly narrated stories help children build connections between the familiar characters of the Bible. Readers can begin to identify the broader themes woven throughout the biblical narrative and can sense the very real message that, in all ages, God has acted in people and through people to accomplish great things. We've used the other books in this series in our mid-week elementary program with great success.? Bonnie J. Kilgore Director of Christian Education Christ Presbyterian Church Camp Hill, PAReview:
