The other day, Orison pulled a Bible storybook off my children’s bookshelf. He wanted Jonah. Then he wanted the ten plagues, which reminded me that Moses shows up in the New Testament as well. So we also read about the Transfiguration.
Mighty Acts of God, by Starr Meade, is written for children just a bit older than the usual Bible story book crowd. And in fact, it’s not really the book you want if you’re looking for the details of each story.
This is more of a commentary for grade schoolers–and an excellent one–using aspects of each story to draw out truths about God.
Each story in Mighty Acts of God is retold in lively, modern-day language from a Reformed perspective, and is followed by an application section with several discussion-sparking questions and prayer points. By moving chronologically through both the Old and New Testaments, parents and children glimpse the person of God as one of consistency, vibrancy, passion, and love. (Publisher’s notes)
This would make a good book for family devotions or for an older child to use for his or her personal devotions.
Might Acts of God is also available as an unabridged audiobook.
