Hans Christian Andersen Illuminated by The Message
Prayer is a conversation with the Divine, and Hans Christian Andersen Illuminated by The Message prompts a lively discussion from an unusual platform.
Hans Christian Andersen offered generations of children around the world an array of life lessons in his enchanting fairy tales. Now, in the unique prayer book, Hans Christian Andersen Illuminated by The Message, compiled and introduced by Mary K. Doyle, passages from the contemporary Scripture of The Message are paired with those from Andersen’s fairy tales for an unusual, yet inspiring and creative way to pray. You’ll find yourself contemplating the meaning behind the fairy tales, Scripture, and life in general.
This is a book for everyone to read. It shows the correlation between fairy tales and bible verses as a pathway to prayer and spiritual growth. Fascinating for adults, yet a great nite time read to children book as a lead in to nightly prayers. I found this book to be wonderful and a book I will read more than once as it stimulates my spiritual growth. I highly recommend this book to children of all ages.
