Linnea's Books: Adventures of the God Detectives
Adventures of the God Detectives
by Nancy Reeves & Linnea Good
for children aged 6-11
Renowned clinical psychologist and spiritual discernment guide, Dr Nancy Reeves, and beloved children's story and songsmith, Linnea Good have teamed up to write a book for young people with an ancient theme: How does God speak with God's people? This book introduces us to 4 children, ages 7-9, who are determined to find "clues" about the many different ways God's messages can be found in the world.
The seven stories of their adventures offer insights into the kinds of messages God sends (and doesn't send), encourage respect for the experiences of others, deepen Christian faith and build trust in our own abilities to discern God's active presence in our lives. In each of the seven stories, the four friends have an encounter that gives them a "clue" about their quest. Each story is followed by a "Notes for Adults" section to assist parents and leaders in facilitating an open conversation about what they have read.
