This attractively illustrated retelling of the book of Joel will teach young readers about the major lessons found in this minor prophet
An army of locusts has eaten all the crops in Israel, and a drought has dried up their streams – what are they going to do? God had warned Israel long ago that this would happen if they did not listen to Him.
Joel cried out to God, and God told him about “the day of the Lord”, when God will come with his angelic army to set things right. He will judge the wicked but forgive everyone who is truly sorry and turns to Him.
This minor prophet offers major lessons, teaching readers about repentance and renewal, two aspects of the Christian life as essential today as when Joel first wrote.
