In The One O’Clock Miracle, written by Alison Mitchell and illustrated by Catalina Echeverri, we find the story of the healing of the official’s son as told in John 4. This book does not focus solely on the healing but rather captures the faith of the father. The official, upon speaking with Jesus, traveled the long distance home, repeating and believing the words of Jesus, “Go, your son will live.” Children will learn to hold onto God’s promises, repeating them so as not to forget what He has said. It is a story about healing, trust and faith in God.
This is a sweet book which will teach children to trust in the words of Jesus. They will be able to easily grasp the point that God’s Word is truth and will come to pass. Parents and children alike will be captured by the words, illustrations and message of this book.
I highly recommend this book for parents to buy and to read to their children. This book is the beautifully told story of Jesus and addresses the issue of faith.
