Smack-Dab In The Middle Of God's Love

"Just like a dollop of honey on Ana's happy-tasting sopillas, we are all smack-dab in the middle of Abba's love...a love big enough to hold us all."  What an amazing line from the children's book Smack Dab in the Middle of God's Love by Brennan Manning and John Blase. Beautifully illustrated by Nicole Tadgell. Published by Tommy Nelson.

The pages of this stunning book are bright, colorful, and cheery.  The story itself only adds to the beauty of this book.  Children of all ages will love this story...I know, I'm one of the older kids and I loved it!

The main theme of this book, is of course, God's immense love for us, but it also focuses on the importance of looking around us to see God's many wonderful gifts.  Willie Juan asks the children an important question, "What is one thing you think Abba will ask you someday when you are in heaven?"  This gives the children to not only the opportunity to think of God's love and His gifts, but also their responsibility in responding to the gifts.

This book is a "must" for use in children's ministry.  I would highly recommend this book to readers of all ages.

This book was received as an e-book via BookSneeze®.com - book review blogger program. I was not required to give any positive review. The review given for this book is my personal opinion only.
