Francis Chan's Children's Books!

Two great Christian books are on my must have list for children! 
Ronnie Wilson's Gift and Halfway Herbert written by Francis Chan. 
(Author of Crazy Love and Multiply).
I have rented them from our local library, but I hope to own them soon!

Ronnie Wilson's Gift is based on  the Scripture:
"And the King will answer them,'Truly, I say to you, 
as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me."
(Matthew 25:40)
The story is about a young boy who receives Jesus free gift of salvation
and is so grateful to God that he wants to give a gift to Jesus.
It is so well written, it perfectly relates the Scripture to every day life
and my children loved it. 
I would give a better summary of the story, 
but I don't want to give the ending away-it's that good!

Halfway Herbert is based on the Scripture:
"Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul 
and with all your mind." (Matthew 22:37)
It shows children not to be like Herbert,
a boy who lives his life by doing things halfway
instead of with his whole heart
Great illustrations, wonderfully written and again
my children have asked me to read it to them again and again.

I was so pleasantly surprised with both books.
I think these books will be great for your own personal library 
or as a gift to bless other families with.
My hope is that Francis Chan continues to write books for children!
