Angels Of The Bible (Hardcover)Wendy Maartens
18 well-known Bible stories teach kids about God’s angels, what they look like and what they do.
“What are angels?” “What do they do?” “Do they have names?” In Angels of the Bible, renowned children’s author Wendy Maartens answers these questions and more about God’s angels. Children will be introduced to special angels from 18 different Bible stories like Jacob’s dream, Balaam’s talking donkey, the angel who gave food to Elijah, and the angel who brought good news to Mary. Angels of the Bible includes colorful illustrations by Catherine Groenewald that bring to life the angels and the Bible stories they appear in. Also included are instructions for folding your very own pop-up angel card.
Angels of the Bible will help children to discover that angels are real and they are everywhere – they’re God’s loving servants and they are our friends!
