Top Tips on Communicating God in Non-Book Ways (Kathryn Copsey and Jean Elliott, Scripture Union) RRP £3.50

 

Ancient stained glass windows, PowerPoint presentations, games, social networking, laughter, celebratory feasts - some non-book ways of meeting God are new for our time, some have been around for centuries. All of them ultimately lead to discovering the God we encounter in the Bible.

 

This book encourages you to use every means available to introduce children and young people to God, emphasising again and again the vital place of relationship-building.
