Summary & Rating: 5. Children’s Bible Hour (CBH) Ministries are wonderfully, unabashedly evangelical. They have been around for years, producing radio shows and devotionals for children. We love their set of Seasons of Faith illustrated books with audio CD. These stories are based upon CBH popular radio scripts. I like the solid biblical teaching of the books. Each book addresses a different “season” of faith, and children can see how to live out their faith in real life situations.
I liked the books. I found the illustrations colorful and the stories well written. I appreciate the clear way that difficult questions about faith are handled.
I laughed at the true test—Em really loves to read these. She will choose to read them at bedtime with Daddy and also will sit and listen to the audio version–over and over again. Her favorite one? Braving The Storm. I find this interesting, as she has just gone through a tough time with feeling poorly and finding out about the epilepsy.
- Spring: This is the time when people experience new life in Christ. Faith develops and Christians begin to share the Salvation message with others. [Race with Midnight-good choice for horse lovers]
- Summer: This is the time when faith grows under God’s love and care. Fruit is witnessed and triumphs are gained through applying His Word and striving to be the best we can be in Christ. [You Can't Come In]
- Autumn: This is the time of struggle, temptation, peer pressure, and mistakes. Even though it might seem like nothing good can come from this time, God has promised that He will be there. He will teach us how to forgive and then grown in grace. [Seventy Times Seven]
- Winter: This is the time when life is most difficult. Deep struggles, mourning, trying to make it through difficult times, or the death of a loved one can pull us away from God. He teaches us to lean on Him for comfort and peace. [Braving the Storm]
