Endorsements & Reviews-

"There were many places that I resonate with Lubeck's comments and explanations. He encourages readers to recapture, cultivate and embrace a send of "childlike wonder of the world around us, including the world of the Bible." His illustrations and short stories are used effectively throughout the book to reinforce the points being emphasized, [It] rekindled my personal desire to know and value the words of the world's most remarkable book."
