Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"I got goose bumps when I read In God's Name, its language and illustrations are that moving. This is a book children will love and the whole family will cherish for its beauty and power."
Francine Klagsbrun, author, Mixed Feelings: Love, Hate, Rivalry, and Reconciliation among Brothers and Sisters

"What a lovely, healing book!"
Madeleine L'Engle

"In God's Name provides a wonderful illustration of the many faces through which God is known and understood…. Children of all ages will come away with a deeper grasp of God’s many-faceted splendor."
The Rt. Rev. Edward W. Jones, DD, Episcopal Bishop of Indianapolis

“A poignant and touching fable that will reach the hearts of parents and children alike. This beautiful book teaches us something about ourselves, and about God.”
Rabbi David J. Wolpe, author, Teaching Your Children about God

“A refreshingly simple way to convey profound truth about God, for children and those who read to or with them.”
Dr. Richard Dickinson, president, Christian Theological Seminary

Children's Literature - Judy Silverman
In God's Name is a beautiful text, charmingly illustrated. Stasso tells us how people use different names for God-names like Warrior, Healer, Comforter, Savior, Source of Life, Creator of Light. When each person is sure that his or her name is the only true name, no one listens, "not even God." In a joyous conclusion, Stasso explains that although people are of different faiths they all call upon the same God. Not to be read in only one session, this is for everyone.
