Shadows of Divine Things

This site is devoted to theological and philosophical investigations of the spiritual meanings of life, current events, music, spiritual growth, nature, and learning to be attuned to listening to the 'language of God.' The name of this blog comes from one of Jonathan Edwards's journals which he called 'Shadows of Divine Things,' and later renamed 'Images of Divine Things.' As a Christian I am continously on a spiritual journey to grow more into the image of Christ, to understand what it means to be crucified with Christ. To seek the truths of the Christian Faith is of upmost importance, and to know that any truths that are found outside of Christianity are present there because they ultimately point to God. I have an M.A. in theology and apologetics and I completed one year of graduate studies in Philosophy at Marquette University.

A Children's Book Recommendation

Recently my wife and I gave a copy of John MacArthur's book titled "I Believe in Jesus: Leading Your Child to Christ" to my wife's sister and husband. They have four children (one just recently born the week of Thanksgiving) and this book is a wonderful book for children to gain a better understanding of Christianity.

I actually did not know MacArthur had published this book until my wife and I recently went to hear him speak again here in the Dallas area. There was a ministry (not actually 'Grace to You' which is MacArthur's ministry) that had a book table set up and this book was on it. So my wife bought a copy.

The book is great for children since it is easy to read (naturally so since it was written for children) and is filled with wonderful illustrations/drawings. The book is geared to help the parents actually lead their children to a better understanding and saving knowledge of Christ. If you have children and would like to actually have a good solid theological book that is especially written to reach children, then I recommend this work to you. I have provided a link below for you to see the book and purchase it if you like.
