The simple yet profound text, accompanied by vibrant, colorful photographs, captures the experiences common to children of all faiths and backgrounds as they begin to understand the many ways God listens to us. Filled with wisdom and love, How Does God Listen? delights the senses and expands the ways we think about God and God's presence in our lives.
"How Do I Know that God is listening? I can't See God."
"Well, there are lots of things we can't see, yet we know they are there."

Using simple, everyday examples to which children can relate, How Does God Listen? helps children develop a direct and personal understanding of God.
How Does God Listen? teaches children--and the rest of us--that God is everywhere, and that the world is full of wonder.
