From the Publisher:
The Power of the Cross.
Nothing else in all of history is as important to our faith as the cross of Jesus Christ. We wear its symbol on jewelry or we see it lifted up in sanctuaries and posted in graveyards, but what does it really mean? Is it too difficult to talk about the cross with youngsters? Will they be able to understand what it means?
Authors Joni Eareckson Tada and Bobbie Wolgemuth are convinced that there is no better time to teach the power of the cross and the joy of the resurrection than the early years. What you hold in your hands has everything you need to teach children about the magnificent love of God and the power of the cross. Let the children you love understand the Passion of Jesus Christ and the warmth of God's love with beautiful music and heartwarming stories. Let them sing along with Joni, Bobbie, and the children on the enclosed richly orchestrated CD, and in no time they will have memorized these classic and treasured hymns.
This special Passion collection features twelve timeless hymns and is the fourth in a series by authors Joni Eareckson Tada and Bobbie Wolgemuth. It is filled with delightful stories from the Bible, devotionals, simple piano music, guitar chords, and beautiful original illustrations by Frank Ordaz.
If you want to focus your child's heart on the glorious truth of the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ, this book - with the enclosed CD - is what you're looking for. Could anything be a better gift?
"For the word of the cross...is the power of God."
