Special God

By Julie Melilli, Illustrated by Matt Stevens

Written to make the truths of the gospel accessible to children, this book uses simple illustrations and concrete, easy-to-understand language to explain important theological ideas, such as sin, heaven, the Bible, and the Holy Spirit. Each of the 25 chapters introduces a biblical concept by asking a question and answering it with simple vocabulary and plenty of review to help the information stick. Written by a former teacher and the mother of a child with intellectual disabilities, this book meets a critical need for parents and teachers looking for a tool to teach kids about God, humanity, Jesus, salvation, and more.
