Review of Jim Jobe's
Hudson on a Mission
Here is a quote from the book:
“We finally got to the part of God’s story where we taught them about Jesus dying on the cross for our sins and rising again three days later!”
What’s commendable is:
A lot of information is provided in a first person, engaging way.
The number of pages with text is: 25. Also, there’s a helpful Discussion Page at the end.
is a picture book biography that includes follow up action steps for children to move forward in their own faith and obedience.
In this inspiring book the author highlights the faithful life of a non-western believing family and the stages their son goes through to follow the call of God to the nations with his own wife and family. For all of us who take seriously the Lord’s command “to make disciples of all nations,” this book is both a testimony and a challenge.
I have met Derek personally and am inspired by the faithful vision he and his wife pursue. I know they will follow Jesus wherever He leads.
What is God preparing us to do? Will we obey, will we follow, and will we pray for the glory of God among the nations?
May this tale of an ordinary life lived obediently in Christ speak powerfully to you as it has to me.
