The Fun of Meeting Jesus is a beautifully illustrated read-aloud book that contains the key Gospel teachings of Jesus without a Christian overlay. These simple and intuitive teachings can be helpful even for people who have a different faith tradition or no faith tradition at all, and they are magical for children.
Little ones who are given this book will receive a pearl of great price. Adults should explore the book with them, encourage them to treasure it on their own, and join with them in ongoing reflection and discussion of its themes. The author has penetrated to the core of Jesus’ teachings and presented them with uncommon simplicity and grace. The section at the end giving scriptural sources brought tears to my eyes. May this beautiful book spread far and wide, exposing people of all ages and walks of life to the sublime majesty of a master who walks among us still.
