Description
Before Bridge to TerabithiaThe Great Gilly Hopkins, and Jacob Have I Loved, Katherine Paterson wrote this book, an exploration for middle-school-age readers of what it means to be a child of God.Within the context of biblical teaching and the Christian faith, Katherine Paterson discusses basic questions that she herself has grappled with for a long time:
  • Where in the world is God?
  • What about me?
  • Where do I belong?
  • Who is my neighbor?
  • What is my purpose?
Paterson relates significant experiences from her own life as well as many other stories showing how God loves us and leads us through life's challenges. This new edition includes questions for reflection and discussion with each chapter that will be useful for readers and leaders alike.

display_descriptionEveryone ponders what is the meaning of life and how do they fit into this world. The author references one of the questions in the Westminster shorter cathechism which asks, "What is the chief or primary purpose in human life?" The answer was this, "Man's chief end is to glorify God, and to enjoy him forever." Sin has all but destroyed the relationship between man and God, but it is the Christian belief that this was in the plan of God before the foundation of the earth to restore that relationship through faith in Christ atoning death and resurrected life. This is the true gospel message to be given to every man, woman, girl and boy.
