Are you familiar with Max Lucado?
Max Lucado has been a pastor, speaker, and author since, well, before I graduated from high school! I've heard him preach on the radio, and as a family, we've enjoyed some of his many books together. He is an author who writes with purpose. Even his children's books aren't written to be "fluffy" and meaningless. Each page has definite meaning and purpose, and I love this! If I wrote children's books, this is the style in which I would write them!
Most importantly, Max Lucado's books point people to God in a way that makes a person really ponder and meditate.
Here's a list of just the CHILDREN'S books that Max Lucado has written. I think this is impressive! (The titles in bold are books that either our family owns or has read from our church library):
We've enjoyed every single Max Lucado book we've ever read. He often writes about heaven in terms that children can understand.
Coming Home is 32 pages filled with beautiful artwork and text. Here are two samples, but please note that these are not quite as vibrant as the actual book pages' colors:
The biblical message found within the 32 pages of Coming Home is that Jesus has returned to heaven, is building a heavenly home for us there, and will return for us in the future to bring us to heaven with Him. It is a delightful picture of the emotions a child or an adult will go through when choosing to wait and follow Christ or decide to choose a worldly lifestyle and not follow Christ.
It would be nice to have a family library full of Max Lucado's books! In handing down our Christian faith to our children, it is a blessing to be able to surround them with biblical, thoughtful books to help renew their minds and then their hearts.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading through this short but beautiful book. I know you'll enjoy Coming Home, too!
Do you have a favorite biblical children's author or set of titles that you enjoy sharing with your children or grandchildren?
I was provided with one hardbound copy of Coming Home in exchange for my honest review of this book. No other compensation was provided.

Why does everyone keep saying this is new? I had a copy of this story (not the illustrated version) in the early 1990's that was mixed in with many other Christian stories and when I read that I was under the impression that the story was old then.
