What God Has Always Wanted, helps children understand the simple Gospel message: God desires to live in friendship with the people He created, now and forever.

Did you know that what God has always wanted is for you to become one of His friends?
This isn't just a children's book. This book is for parents - parents who care deeply about passing on a legacy of faith in Christ. Parents who invite their children to "ask Jesus into your heart."
But what does that phrase really mean? And is it biblical? In my role as pastor and parent, I've found that when asked, many children don't understand that this phrase is symbolic. Jesus does not step into their chests to live there.
Seeing this disconnect between a grown-up's metaphor and a child's understanding, I wrote What God Has Always Wanted. It helps children understand the simple Gospel message: God desires to live in friendship with the people He created, now and forever. It gives the big-picture story of the Bible, from Genesis through Revelation.

From the Inside Flap
If a child asked, "What's the Bible all about?" how would you answer? This could be more difficult than you think..."Uh, well, the Bible is about...God, Jesus, sin, salvation...going to heaven...being good...doctrine." All those are important, yet none qualify as the Bible's "big idea."
Part of the problem is how we've come to view the Bible. We see sixty-six separate books instead of one story--God's Story. Because we've not been clear on this ourselves, we've not been able to make it clear to our children. As a result, kids raised in the church hear a lot of Bible stories. But rarely do they see how these fit together into one story. In other words, we teach Bible stories, but not the Bible's Story.
So what is the Bible all about? Simply this -- God wants to live in friendship (relationship) with us both now and forever. We see this in Genesis where God walked in the garden with Adam and Eve and in Revelation: "Behold, the tabernacle of God is among men, and He will dwell among them" (Revelation 21:3).
What God Has Always Wanted highlights God's desire to live with His people using a kid-friendly storyline. This overview of the Bible will help you and your child see what the Bible is really all about.
