Good children's books are hard to find. And if you really want a volume that's appropriate for a wide age range, theologically uplifting and delightfully illustrated, well - those are as rare as the proverbial hen's teeth!
There is, however, hope. Morehouse Publishing has just released an illustrated version of the hymn, "God of the Sparrow." L. Preston McDaniel's artwork creates a context in which children and adults alike can contemplate the complex God portrayed in the beautiful lyrics by pastor Jarolslav J. Vajda. The illustrations span a variety of seasons and situations. This volume is the first in a series of hymns that will be illustrated by McDaniel. "All Things Bright and Beautiful" will be available in the spring of 2000. A treasure. . . enjoy! -- Monday Morning, The Magazine for Presbyterian Leaders, 12/6/99
It's charming, lovely, reverential, joyful. And any work that exposes more people to Vadja's hymns is a delight! -- Dave Kirby, PD and reviewer for Book Bit, WTBF AM/FM
