A Pleasant Pastime Updated: Reading to the Kids

Children’s literature whether fiction or non-fiction is primarily focused on telling stories with a moral, stories that have a point and a purpose. Christian non-fiction books like the Bible and picture books featuring the lives of saints and heroes of the church or other ancient and modern heroes are important parts of this heritage. Kids have a natural curiosity about the past. They want to know what happened before — before they arrived! Christian and Catholic children’s classics and other stories of a non-fictional nature are food for young minds eager to learn about the past.Adults who are serious about their own beliefs and moral standards will want to select for the beloved young people in their lives books they can count on to communicate solid and orthodox Christian values in an entertaining and educational format. Inspirational children’s literature conforming to the highest standard of excellence is available online through The Christian Book Corner.

One of the books we feature is “A Book of Angels” from Sophia press, by Marigold Hunt. Modern believers may be tempted to look upon angels as one of the more fanciful elements of Scripture, but this illuminating and entertaining collection of angel stories from the Bible shows that there are just too many angels for them to be metaphorical, allegorical, or unimportant.
So that children will come to know and learn to revere angels, Marigold Hunt explains what angels are (and are not!) and gathers here in one volume most of the stories of angels in the Bible, including exciting tales of:

The fallen angels, beginning with the devil himself, tempting Adam and Eve
The angel who barred the gates of Eden so Adam and Eve could never enter again
The angels who announced that Sara, Abraham’s aged wife, would have a baby
The angels who tried to save Lot from destruction with the city of Sodom
The angel who stayed Abraham’s hand as he was about to sacrifice his son Isaac
The angels in Jacob’s dream who climbed the stairway to Heaven
The angels who saved Sidrach, Misach, and Abdenago from the fiery furnace
The angel Raphael, who shielded Tobias from death, and protected his wife Sara
The angels at the Ascension who chided the apostles for staring at the sky
The angel Gabriel, who foretold the birth of Jesus and John the Baptist
The choirs of angels who sang above Bethlehem when Jesus was born
The angel who carried food to Daniel when he was imprisoned in the lion’s den
The angel who freed Peter from prison, and, of course:
The countless angels who fill the marvelous pages of the Book of Revelation
