TITLE: CREATION-MY FATHER LOVES ME
AUTHOR: J.D. WISE
ILLUSTRATORS: DON DAY, KELLY PULLEY, PAUL TRICE
DESCRIPTION: A refreshing story of the creation told from a point of view reflective of Africa and in honor of the many orphans on the continent and around the world who long to feel their father’s love.
WHY I LIKE THIS BOOK: J.D. Wise shares a story that is reminiscent of his own life losing his father at the age of three. His goal in writing his book is to share a powerful revelation with others like himself of a Fathers love that transcends space, time and circumstance. The setting in Africa involving a conversation between a father and son offers a vivid and authentic opportunity to inspire and encourage those who may feel abandoned and beyond the reach of a loving heart. The poetic and graphic telling of how the universe came into being asserts the importance the Father places on every living creature, especially mankind. The fall of man is explained in details that are accessible to children and profound in its ability to define the price of sin and the extraordinary power of forgiveness. The illustrations as described by the author literally explode from the page in rich and vibrant colors and textures that delight and inspire. J. D. Wise gives us a priceless tool for teaching our children about someone bigger than ourselves whose loving arms will never let us go!
