I thouroughly recommend this book for its depth and simplicity. It has thorough teaching yet is written in such a way that I have been able to glean a very good children’s talk from the chapter on I am the Light of the World – the topic for my talk at camp next week.
It is actually an easy read. So if you want to read one book this summer that gives you good theological teaching but isn’t going to cramp your little grey cells too much as you sun yourself on the beach – this is a good choice. Better still if you are in the need of a set of children’s talks – choose the I am sayings of Jesus as your theme and this book will help you get to grips with that. It’s always good when the one who is teaching starts of by being taught themselves.
