There are times when explaining the concepts of eternity and Heaven to adults is difficult. When you try to explain it to children it becomes even more challenging.
Randy Alcorn has done a wonderful job of giving children an idea of part of what eternity with God will be like. Based upon his recent bestseller, Heaven, he writes this heart-warming story about a little boy named Nathan.
Nathan shares a love of baseball with his grandfather, a former Major League player. The major setback is that Nathan suffers from spinal bifida that renders him unable to play the sport he loves so much. In the meantime, his grandfather is dying from cancer.
The book, beautifully illustrated by Doron Ben-Ami, gives a very good perspective on explaining illness, dying and eternity to children. Tasteful in its presentation and biblical in its content, it would be a great addition to any child’s library.
