Though Bluestone sounds like a wonderful place, the boys find it difficult to wait for the captain on Terrene. The island is so gray that it is hard for them to imagine the vibrant colors of Bluestone. Soon they grow tired of watching and waiting for their captain, and it is hard for them to remember his voice. Can they really believe that he will come back for them? To do so they must have faith--they must see with their hearts, not their eyes. Will the captain really come back for Arion and Argo like he promised? And will the boys be ready for his return?
Once again, master storyteller Max Lucado tackles a difficult topic for children and creates an allegory that makes God's truth easy for them to understand. Coming Home captures the struggle and hope as we wait for Jesus to return and take us to an incredibly beautiful place that we cannot imagine. Children will learn powerful lessons about faith, patience, and God's great love and mercy. Recommended for ages 4 to 10.
