Beginning tomorrow, Virginia Thomas will be a guest contributor on our blog. Virginia is a graduate of Union Presbyterian Seminary (when it was the Assembly’s Training School) and led workshops for many years on children and worship and on children’s literature. In fact, it was her book, Children’s Literature for all God’s Children, with Betty Miller that first helped describe the idea of children’s literature as a bridge between the Biblical story and our own experiences. (Although it was published in 1986, it’s still a wonderful resource and used copies are still available in various places.)
Virginia will be providing book reviews and faith talk questions and will also provide some more in depth reviews of some children’s Bibles and Bible storybooks that have been published recently.
We’re happy to welcome her experienced voice to this conversation!
