Angels Whisper The Story of Creation

I want children to know that God created because God loves

Ray McClendon’s new book, Angels Whisper The Story of Creation, ($9.99, paperback, 9781498457781; $20.99, hardcover, 9781498457798; $4.99, e-book, 9781498457804) is a faithful retelling of the account of creation in Genesis 1. It is a love story describing the love of a Heavenly Father who created children in his image and gave them a home and a purpose in life. The author, father of four and grandfather of three, wanted to make Genesis 1 fun and easy for small children to read and understand. And in a way that would make each child want to learn even more about God. Whimsically written rhyme and elegant watercolor illustrations by Russell Oliviera, make this a story to be enjoyed over and over again.

“I want children to know that God created because God loves,” states the author. “This is why hearts figure so prominently in the illustrations and why Psalm 136:1-9 is included at the end of the book. Everything we see around us and every form of life exists because God is love.”

Ray McClendon is a Poet Theologian. He thanks God for His gracious gift of verse, and thirty years of teaching ministry that has provided a few insights along the way. Ray's desire is to combine faithfulness to God's story with rhyme in a way that will instruct the mind, lift the heart, and fire the imagination.
