His Friends and Servants is almost here! (plus preview a new chapter)

 Click pdf for sample chapter from His Friends and Servants. David and Goliath Saul wondered how David could defeat Goliath. Saul gave David his armor, helmet, and sword. David put them on, but he could not even move. “I cannot go in this armor because I am not used to it,” he said. David removed the armor and instead took his shepherd’s staff, bag, and sling. He stopped by a little stream and chose five stones, put them in his bag, and...

Mothers’ Day

Mothers’ Day

Dear moms, We realize that you have been spending a lot of time with your kids in the last few weeks. And a lot of that time was probably spent reminding them to focus on their schoolwork, telling them to be kind to their siblings, and asking them to please stop making a mess. Do you need a break from being your children’s demanding taskmaster? Take some time to sit down on the couch and read with them. And what could...

"Thoroughly covenantal, consistently biblical, and beautifully Christo-centric"

"Thoroughly covenantal, consistently biblical, and beautifully Christo-centric"

Thoroughly covenantal, consistently biblical, and beautifully Christo-centric, Jehovah’s Mighty Acts chronologically highlights stories from Old Testament history for the elementary-aged child, explaining how each story displays a wonder of God’s grace toward his people. As a mother of several children falling in this age group, I especially appreciated Rev. Langerak’s accessible language and simple sentence structure, while at the same time maintaining the depth of spiritual truth contained in each biblical story. In fact, Jehovah’s Mighty Acts both encourages and instructs both the child listening and the adult reading aloud as well!

It is refreshing to use a Bible story book that doesn’t require the Reformed believer to weed out false interpretations or inaccurate accounts of biblical events. And though God has blessed the Reformed church with several lovely classic children’s Bible story books, a fresh recounting of these stories and a creative new format powerfully cements biblical history in our children’s minds anew.

Book review: "This book's strength lies in the author’s applications"

Book review: "This book's strength lies in the author’s applications"

Sarah Mowery is the children's book reviewer for the magazine Perspectives in Covenant Education. She is a wife and mother and attends Loveland Protestant Reformed Church in Loveland, Colorado.

__________

Jehovah’s Mighty Acts, the newest RFPA children’s publication (to be released August 2019), is the first in a series by Rev. Nathan Langerak entitled Tell His Wonders. In thirty-one chapters (one hundred pages) Rev. Langerak surveys Old Testament history from Genesis through Esther. The book’s target age is 7–10 years, but the superb, original color illustrations by Michael Welply, illustrator of The Random House Book of Bible Stories, will intrigue children much younger (as well as adults).

Book Review of His Mercy Endureth Forever

Book Review of His Mercy Endureth Forever
Psalm 136 stands on its own merit. It needs no extraneous efforts to prop it up. Just read this chapter. Read it aloud. In exalted language the psalm rehearses a litany of God’s wonders to Israel and his covenant care of his people. What is most memorable is the refrain (repeated 26 times!): “For his mercy endureth forever.” Above all, Psalm 136 is a psalm to be sung, and new RFPA illustrator, Kathleen DeJong, does not overlook this important aspect in her artistic renderings. The opening page of His Mercy Endureth Forever includes enhanced line drawings of ancient musical instruments, and the book closes with a musical score from Psalm 136. Read More
