Customer Reviews for God's Mighty Acts in Salvation
This devotion is based on a collection of talks she gave to the children at her church while her pastor was preaching from Galatians. She addresses a variety or points from Galatians including who wrote Galatians and to who, Paul's authority, freedom in Christ, salvation plus nothing, faith producing works, and real fruit. I loved the entry that she wrote about Abraham and Sarah and how Sarah thought God needed help in keeping the promise He made about them having a child. It is in reference to Galatians 4:28. This entry addresses the false teacher that Galatians were listening to that they had to work to enjoy God's favor. Rarely as I read these books, I did come across an example that was not exactly the way I would have put it to my children. The example that comes to my mind from this book was just a little more blunt than the way I have been teaching my children to say things. I know I sometimes am particularly sensitive to blunt speech, often to a fault I think. Starr Meade's heart is very apparent through all of her talks and there is love and grace in the entries in this book. I loved so many of her illustrations that gave me pause to think--things I hadn't considered before. I highly recommend this book and God's Mighty Acts in Creation. I think that they would be most appropriate for 8-12 year olds. It is such an encouragement to me as a parent to find good books that I look forward to reading with my children that I know will help them understand the truths that I so dearly want them to know in their hearts. Please note that I was given a complimentary copy of this book for review by Crossway Books.

Review 2 for God's Mighty Acts in Salvation
Date:September 8, 2010
Starr Meade is a great benefit to me. I saw this in the Crossway catalog about a month ago and knew I wanted to have it in my hand. Got it last week. I will be using these as great resources as I continue to study and write this curriculum.The two that I have in my hand are Gods Mighty Acts in Salvation and Gods Mighty Acts in Creation. I have had my head in creation now for a couple of weeks, plugging along at those lessons, so this was perfect timing. The Salvation one is basically a commentary/walk-through of the book of Galatians. Both books point to the gospel and Jesus.These books are written for kids 8-12 and I really think they are matched well for that age. They are about 1-2 pages in length, perfect for attention spans
