Book Review: Wait Until Then

Wait Until Then, by Randy Alcorn, Tyndale Kids

   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.

  1. This book is amazing, and one that parents and their children should read together.

  2. Sounds like a great one. As much as I can enjoy a veggietale video, it is important to make sure we are reading them books that make them think a little deeper, even at a young age.

    Thanks for the heads up,


  3. Thanks for the recommendation. I’m always looking for ideas for books for Ella’s library.

  4. Thanks, Amy.

    Doug and Beverly, this is a book that will be easy for your children to understand, but will enhance their understanding of the topics I mentioned. Thanks for stopping by.
