|About the Book|
With the help of Because Nothing Looks Like God you can encourage children to develop their own personal relationship with God. Remember, whatever children say about God is true for them. There are no wrong answers. What is God like?Mixing sparks of curiosity and spiritual imagination, this wondrous book lights childrens creativity and shows how God is with us everyday in every way.In this, their first collaborative book, husband-and-wife team Lawrence and Karen Kushner combine their expertise to help introduce children to the possibilities of spiritual life. Real-life examples of happiness and sadness—from goodnight stories, to the hope and fear felt the first time at bat, to the closing moments of someones life—invite parents and children to explore, together, the questions we all have about God, no matter what our age.Three poetic spiritual stories will delight children of all ages:• Where is God?• What Does God Look Like?• How Does God Make Things HappenRabbi Lawrence Kushner, one of the most widely read authors on Jewish spiritual life, is the Emanu-El Scholar at San Francisco’s Congregation Emanu-El and visiting professor of Jewish spirituality at the Graduate Theological Union.
