Maybe God Is Like That Too

Maybe God Is Like That Too


Every child wonders where God lives or what God is like. In Maybe God Is Like That Too, a young boy asks his grandma where God is in their city. She invites him to pay attention to where he sees the fruit of the Spirit. Where love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control are, there too is God. The boy sees God in the kindness of a doorman holding the door for a man using a wheelchair, in the patience of his teacher helping him tie his shoes, and in the love, faithfulness, and gentleness of his grandma. An ordinary day in his city opens this young boy's eyes to God's Spirit at work all around him

Schipper's cheerful, screenprintlike artwork capably evokes the energy of a moderately gritty, moderately diverse cityscape. --Publishers Weekly

A wonderful story to help illustrate the humanity of Christ Jesus as told to us in Philippians. --Katie Barrett Todd, Union Presbyterian Seminary alumna, writer for Lectionary Links.
