Description

Using an allegory children can easily grasp, this fully illustrated story of the wise man Shaddai and the overly curious boy Paladin will reveal God's love for children and the lengths he will go to help and protect them.



More Information

A long time ago a wise man named Shaddai built a wonderful village for children to live in. He talked to them and sang for them and told them stories. He gave them everything they needed. And with his own hands Shaddai built a protective wall around their village, rock by rock.

He did all of this for just one reason—because he loved them.

One day Paladin, the village's most curious child, discovers something troubling about the wall. Something that makes him wonder about Shaddai's love. Could there be a mistake?

Young Paladin is about to discover the answer. And when he does, he will come to understand just how deeply he is loved.

And so will you.

Everything God does for your children, He does because of love. He protects them. He listens to their prayers. He provides for their needs. He even gives warnings and sets boundaries—for no other reason than love.

As an adult you already know this. Now your children can know it too through this captivating tale, which was first published in the award-winning children's bestseller Tell Me the Story.

Let this timeless story of a curious boy's choice and a caring man's sacrificial response help you make the infinite love of their Heavenly Father as real to your kids as your own love. Because they need to understand about Him what you have already learned—that everything God does throughout our lives, He does for one reason only, and for the best reason of all: "Because I Love You."



Author Information

Max Lucado
Max Lucado has the heart of a pastor and the pen of a poet. He is a preacher who writes and a writer who preaches, though none would call him preachy. This unique combination of gifts led Christianity Today to label him "America's Pastor," but he prefers to go by "Max" and leave the titles behind.

Since 1985 this Texas pastor has taken pen to paper, sharing his heart and his stories with readers around the globe. And readers have responded, snapping up more than 50 million copies of his 60 plus titles during the last two decades.

Every year, Max's books are consistently among the best selling and most well-reviewed books in the industry. He is the first and only author to win the ECPA Christian Book of the Year award three times (1999 for Just Like Jesus, 1997 for In the Grip of Grace and 1995 for When God Whispers Your Name). And his name has become a fixture on national bestseller lists-a Max Lucado title has appeared on the CBA hardcover bestseller list every month for more than a dozen years. Also in 2008, Max Lucado's 3:16 The Numbers of Hope was awarded Outreach Magazine's Resource of the Year as well as the Retailer's Choice Book of the Year in the Christian Living category. His works regularly appear on the Publishers Weekly religion bestseller lists and have graced the USA Today and New York Times bestseller lists more than once.

Max Lucado is one of the rare authors who can craft memorable books for readers of all ages, races and creeds. He has written bestselling books for both children and adults, from illustrated storybooks to nonfiction and biblical commentary. Though he is known best for his nonfiction books for adults, Max won Campus Life magazine's "favorite author" designation so consistently that the category was deleted for many years from the teen reader's annual awards.

Max's gift of turning a phrase has turned into one of Hallmark's most popular branded greeting cards lines, selling 6 million cards in just three years. His word and stories have been repackaged in just about every format imaginable, including DVDs, CD-ROMs, music CDs, apparel, giftware, calendars, study Bibles and even plush products. And his books have been translated into more than 28 languages worldwide.

Yet all these books and products find their wellspring in a single source: the pulpit at Oak Hills Church in San Antonio, Texas. All Max's books for adults have been birthed as sermons for the congregation at Oak Hills Church-perhaps one of the reasons Readers Digest dubbed him "America's Best Preacher" in 2005.
