In the library at Saint John’s, we have two new books for children and families to share:
How Can I Help? God’s Calling for Kids
Mary J. Moerbe with Gene Edward Veith wrote this colorfully illustrated book about the vocation of “being a child.” It describes the many “helpers” in a child’s world that God sends to help in little and big ways.
Family Time: A Collection of 98 Bible Stories and Devotions
The preface tells parents that the book is “especially designed to help you spend time with God as a family each day. [We provide] a series of devotions for families with growing children.”
For adult readers, suggestions for this month’s reading are:
Till the Night Be Past: The Life and Times of Dietrich Bonhoeffer
Author Theodore J. Kleinhans “recounts the story of Dietrich’s childhood and education, his formative years as a pastor and theologian and the difficult years prior to and during World War II.”
Katharina Von Bora: A Reformation Life
According to Franklin Fry’s foreward, Rudolf K. Markwald and Marilynn Morris Markwald have co-authored an “accurate historical biography tracing the life of Katharina Von Bora from childhood, her early adult years and her marriage to Luther.”
No Ordinary Men: Having the Heart, Brain, and Courage to Live as Godly Men
Bryan R. Salminen uses the fictional characters from the Wizard of Oz “to [teach] lessons of godly wisdom.” The book asks: “Are you The Scarecrow, The Tin Man, The Lion or the Wizard of Oz?” Looks to be an interesting read.
Joyce Hart volunteers every Wednesday in the church office and has been cataloging and managing the church library.
