Encounters with Jesus,
A Lenten Study
By John Indermark

an encounter. Some of these
persons responded with joy
and gratitude. Some ignored or
rejected Christ’s offer of good
news. These stories, along with
daily readings of scripture, written
prayers and suggested exercises,
make an ideal study for either
individual or group use.

Sharing The Easter Faith
with Children
By Carolyn Brown
Carolyn Brown has done
it again! As with all of her
books, Brown writes clearly
and helpfully, with conviction
and passion for what to share
and how to share one’s faith
with children. Sharing the
Easter Faith with Children is
theologically sound, biblically
focused, educationally on
target, and developmentally
appropriate. It should be required reading for every parent, educator, and pastor who wants
to communicate and celebrate the Easter faith with children.
Brown packs a lot of practical suggestions, insights, and activities
into this very readable resource. I am confident children will
mature in their understanding and affirmation of the Easter faith
when they have been nurtured in families and congregations
that take seriously what Brown offers.
