God the Father's Loving Plan
The narrative of salvation history comes alive for young and old in God the Father's Loving Plan, the second book in Teaching the Language of the Faith Series.
This full color book, available both as board book and as a larger paperback, recounts the mysterious initiative of the living God as he engages with his creation—with men and women of faith down through the ages.
Drawing from the rich treasure of biblical language and doctrinal understanding of our Faith, and illuminated by iconographic illustrations, the plan of our heavenly Father unfolds in seventeen spreads from Creation to the fullness of time in Jesus Christ, the incorporation of believers into Christ's mystical body, and the promise of the Lord's glorious return.
Board Book 5 1/2 by 51/2 in.
Review by Dr. Caroline Farey
"Like The Saving Name of God the Son, every aspect of every page feeds the faith of the reader and the child at differing levels. Not a word or detail is out of place.
The text is continuous throughout the 14 pages, displaying the unity of God the Father’s loving plan and creating anticipation from one page to the next. The short but deeply meaningful text flows down the pages carefully so as not to miss any of the drama of salvation history."
Review by Michael D. O'Brien
"This unusually beautiful book for children will not fail to captivate their imaginations, the neo-Byzantine illustrations radiant with symbolic glory, drawing young readers deeper and higher. An incomparable gem, it will enliven your child's grasp of salvation history."
