It began with a dream in the heart of God. Against the soundless sweep of infinity, the Great Creator shaped a world and peopled it with children formed in His own image. And that world is now the stage where a great human drama is playing--the Fall of the human race, its redemption, the ongoing battle between good and evil, and the coming again of our Lord Jesus Christ.

This ancient story of mankind belongs to us and to our children--enabling us to know the meaning of our lives. And God has given parents the awesome privilege--and responsibility--to instruct their children in these eternal truths. Pastor/author Max Lucado and illustrator Ron DiCianni have joined forces to create a unique work, a tool parents can use for this purpose.

At a time when children are being assaulted by unholy messages from the mass media, it is essential that they be grounded in their faith. Combining powerful illustrations with sensitive narrative, this book will help prepare children to be so familiar with their Heavenly Father's voice that when He calls them or speaks to them, they will hear and willingly obey with joy because they have come to know Him intimately.
