The riches of God’s promises are for young children

 

T is for Tree

The riches of God’s promises are, indeed, especially for young children; God specifically includes them in his everlasting, unconditional covenant of grace: “...and to thy seed after thee” (Gen. 17:7). Our little ones may not be neglected. Even in the books we choose to read to them, we can and we must keep the vows we made at the time of baptism to “help and cause them to be instructed” in the “true and perfect doctrine of salvation” (the Reformed baptism form).

I is for Ice

T is for Tree: A Bible ABC

written and illustrated by Connie L. Meyer

The unifying theme of T is for Tree is God’s promises to his people and his almighty power to fulfill those promises.


One of the most important reasons the author chose to write an ABC book was to introduce young children to a variety of Bible texts.

Using twenty-six letters of the English alphabet, children will learn about topics ranging from the rainbow as the sign of the covenant, to God’s directive hand in the hearts of earthly kings, to the promise to God’s people of eternal life with him in Zion.

After each letter of the alphabet is introduced, children read a rhyme that is  limited to three lines. The Bible texts included on each page can be read as a child’s   attention grows and allows.

A wide variety of colorful illustrations will capture the attention of young children as they listen to the words that are read to them.

 

“He casteth forth his ice like
morsels: who can stand before his cold?”
—Psalm 147:17
________

I is for Ice

Cast out across the land.
Our God sends forth his bitter cold.
Before it, who can stand?

T is for TREE
That grows where waters flow,
With leaves that never wither;
A blessed man is so.

"Blessed is the man...[whose] delight is in the law of the Lord…And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper."—Psalm 1:1–3

Gottschalk: Servant of God - Now Available!

Gottschalk: Servant of God

written and illustrated by Connie L. Meyer

For several years the RFPA has discussed publishing books for younger readers and Gottschalk: Servant of God represents our first effort. This book is intended for junior high and high school ages. Because the story is intriguing and the history of Gottschalk is not well-known, adults will also enjoy this book and find it profitable.

Retail: $17.95
Book Club: $11.67

  • 160 pages
  • original illustrations and maps drawn by the author
  • makes a great Christmas gift

Those were the Dark Ages, the days of knights and castles and kings and queens, of monasteries, Vikings, and monks. The days were spiritually dark. True doctrine was hard to come by, if not nearly lost. But there was a light. A clear beam of understanding and truth reflected from one monastery, from one courtroom, from one dungeon–from one man. This is a story of courage, of faith, and of love for the truth. This is the story of Gottschalk, the monk from Orbais.

Who is Gottschalk?

Later this summer the Reformed Free Publishing Association (RFPA) will be publishing, as a Book Club offering, Gottschalk: Servant of God, A Story of Courage, Faith, and Love for the Truth, written by Connie L. Meyer. This biography is about a French monk who lived in the ninth century and suffered for his belief and advocacy of double predestination. Gottschalk’s life, rich in dramatic events, was an integral part of the cultural and political life of Germany, France, Italy and Croatia at the dawn of their histories. However, Gottschalk still remains in the shadow of his more famous contemporaries. The book has been written to be enjoyed by junior high and high school readers. Because the story is intriguing, adults will also enjoy this history and find the reading profitable.

This book represents a new venture for the RFPA but does not signal a direction away from the theological and doctrinal books that we have published throughout our history. For several years the RFPA has discussed publishing books for younger readers and Gottschalk: Servant of God represents our first effort. Our future plans do not include offering these books for younger readers as RFPA Book Club selections. A likely possibility is a separate Book Club for the younger reader-level publications.

 

These were the Dark Ages, the days of knights and castles and kings and queens, of monasteries, Vikings, and monks. But one monk stood out from all the rest. One monk stood firm for the truth he believed though no one stood with him at all. This is the story of Gottschalk of Orbais, a light of truth in the darkness of his age—a light of truth in ours.

 

COMING OCTOBER 2015....
