Faith like a Child: Discover the Simple Joy of Loving God

Overview

Jesus says that if you want to enter his kingdom, you need to be a child again. No doubting the truth, scrambling for stuff, or fussing about the future.

Overview

Jesus says that if you want to enter his kingdom, you need to be a child again. No doubting the truth, scrambling for stuff, or fussing about the future. Just pure, simple living—and a faith that believes Christ's words, embraces his love, and follows his example. But how, in this complicated world, can adults live like that?

According to Johnny Parker, they can listen and learn from the children around them. Kids teach profound spiritual truths. They're the prime example of childlike faith, and their insights transform lives. In this book, Parker shares fresh perspectives on life and God that he learned from watching his sons and reflecting on his own childhood. He has compiled these reminders into delightful, thought-provoking stories that inspire and encourage world weary adults. With Faith like a Child, they'll return to the simple joy of loving God.
