God Speaks to Us in Dreams and Visionsby Mary Ann Getty-Sullivan, Marygrace Dulski Antkowski
Grouped around the theme of dreams and visions,
God's word touches human lives in everyday ways, which is a hopeful and wonderful belief of biblical people of all ages throughout history. With beautiful illustrations focusing on children, God Speaks to Us in Dreams and Visions assembles biblical accounts of God's powerful self-revelation through dreams and visions.
Grouped around the theme of dreams and visions, this work reveals for children ages 5-10 how God speaks to us through our world, through our history and our literature, and through other people, in our own hearts and lives, in our waking and sleep, and in our everyday activities. The Bible tells us that some of the greatest saints of all times saw and heard the voice of God and God's messengers in the surrender of dreams and in the faith required of the visionary. This experience recurs in the Bible, in smiles that tell us how the ordinary reveals the extra-ordinary.
God Speaks to Us in Dreams and Visions, with its colorful and imaginative illustrations, is a collection of eight Bible stories. Here children learn how God guards Joseph from harm and prepares for the future of Israel; how God speaks through dreams to his prophet, Samuel; how God explains to Daniel the writing on the wall; how God calls the young Mary to be a model disciple; and how God rescues Peter from prison through a vision that enables him to better understand his mission for all times. God is as near to us as the dreams we dream and the visions we have for ourselves and our world; that is the meaning of these stories, and a powerful reminder that our God is named Emmanuel, God-with-us.
God Speaks to Us in Dreams and Visions is a complement to the two previous volumes in the series God Speaks toUs in Water Stories and God Speaks to Us in Feeding Stories.
