From the successful author/illustrator team of Parables: Stories Jesus Told comes a compelling new companion. Miracles: Wonders Jesus Worked, like its predecessor, is especially written to introduce young readers to stories of the Bible in language they can understand and relate to. Soft, lush watercolors by Jackie Morris beautifully illustrate these simple retellings of nine miracles that Jesus performed during his lifetime. Mary Hoffman, author of the award-winning Amazing Grace series, relates each story in accessible language and includes a brief introduction for each miracle, encouraging children to see how their lives and needs are not so different from those of people living 2,000 years ago. This lovely picture book brings new relevance and accessibility to age-old stories of the Christian faith.
