Food is essential for human life; God Speaks to Us in Feeding Stories, a collection of biblical tales related to the themes of feeding and meals, shows children that food, a powerful biblical metaphor for the Eucharist, is also vital for spiritual life.God's Word nourishes us, fortifies our lives, and speaks to us in the simple language of something we need everyday: food. God is as near as the food we eat and share. With realistic people-oriented illustrations that focus on children and the God-human connection, God Speaks to Us in Feeding Stories brings to life the biblical accounts of God as nourisher and provider. In colorful and imaginative ways God Speaks to Us in Feeding Stories reminds children that God speaks to us in our lives in ordinary ways: the things of nature and the things we need everyday. Through messengers like Moses, the prophets, and Jesus, the Bible's feeding stories portray a loving and caring God who not only gives life but sustains us daily. These stories help us experience the meaning and the reality of God's answers to our prayer, "Give us this day our daily bread".Parents, teachers, and catechists will find that this beautifully illustrated book helps children ages 5-10 understand the meaning of the Eucharist. Remaining true to the simplicity and integrity of the stories found in the Bible, Getty-Sullivan has adapted the language only when necessary. Scriptural verses are included to encourage older children to read the Bible and discover for themselves these and other stories of God's speaking to us.God Speaks to Us in Feeding Stories is a perfect complement to the first volume in the series, God Speaks to Us in Water Stories. Both books, withtheir delightful illustrations, remind us of the Bible s legacy and help restore our faith and hope.
