How God Stopped The Pirates And Other Devotional Stories by Joel R. Beeke and Diana Kleyn

Recommendation: Highly Recommended

This collection of short devotional stories are a great resource for anyone involved in Children's Ministry. The stories in this book revolve around the themes of missionary stories and remarkable conversions. Whether they would accompany a Bible lesson during a Sunday School time or be used to teach children about missions this book would be an invaluable resource.

Postives: At the beginning of the book there is a guide on how to use the book and there is also a list of shorter and longer length stories given. This makes it easy to find a story to fit the time frame you need to fill. At the end of each story is a thought provoking question and a Scripture to read. Also, at the end of the book there is a a section called Prayer Points. For each story there are several thoughts on what to pray. There is also a complete Scripture index to supplement your story.

Negatives: None

Talking Points: Use the questions at the end of the story along with the Scripture references given to talk with your child about each particular story. Also, be sure to use the prayer points and emphasize the importance of prayer in mission/evanglism work.

Age Level: 4 years old and up - great for family devotional times and Children's Ministry
