Item Description...
Show the ones you love how the Eucharist allows them to hold God's hand. Teach them that receiving Communion strengthens their relationship with God and that through this sacrament he opens the door to Heaven. Adults will also find their love of the Eucharist deepening as they share this beautifully illustrated book with loved ones. For many, the Eucharist embodies the essence of their faith, and yet, all too often, the act of receiving communion has become routine. We stand up on cue, approach the altar, receive the host, and continue on back to our pew. At times we may even choose to walk directly out the church doors without bothering to pray to the One we have received. Communion signals the end of our weekly duty; we have kept holy the Sabbath and now we can leave.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Great book!  Jun 27, 2008
I bought this book for my children 11 and 7 year old. They both were very touched by it. It is very simple, yet it holds a very strong message. I definitely recommend this book.
Excellent Choice for All Ages!  Mar 26, 2008
This is such a great book. A friend recommended it to me & I have shared it with my First Communion class & all of their parents. It is a beautifully done book with a wonderful message.
Wonderful reading for children  May 15, 2007
I bought the book on line without ever having read it because I was looking for a book as a First Communion gift for my 8 year old son. I was so touched when I read it that I cried. The book is wonderfully illustrated but the whole concept of touching God through the Eucharist as a preliminary experience to joining God in Heaven was just beautifully done. Perhaps because I had a death in the family recently that this book touched me so much, but my son enjoyed it. I shared it with my son's teacher and she read it to the class. She liked it so much she plans to buy one and add it to their First Communion curriculum. Great Buy/Great Read!!!
Highly recommended!  Oct 19, 2006
A Handshake From Heaven is a children's book that explains with gorgeous pictures and easy-to-read text our connection to Jesus Christ during the acceptance of the Eucharist at our Church ceremony.

Most children have simple questions about God, Jesus Christ and the Eucharist. This book helps explain how we touch God every time we accept the Eucharist from our priest, pastor, or Eucharist minister. Michaelin Otis' beautifully drawn illustrations show how we can touch God every day by holding hands with someone we love or interacting with everything around us; including flowers, butterflies and puppies.

However, the primary message of the book is the Eucharist and how God opens the door to Heaven every time we experience the Eucharist. A well-written book that has a fantastic fit with first and second graders who are usually approaching their First Communion and need as many materials as they can get that explain the process of the Eucharist and what it really means to attend Mass and accept the body and blood of Jesus Christ.

Minimal text on each page makes this a great book for young readers to read on their own. Bannon also makes it clear that it is everyone's own choice to accept Jesus Christ and the Eucharist and the gift we are given when we experience this sacred moment.

Armchair Interviews says: Highly recommended for a young audience and even adults that are going through a Christian religious conversion.
