Scolding the Snakes breathes life into children’s sermons

Review by Gary Benedict

Ruth Gilmore does a marvelous job in her first book of breathing life into childrens sermons. More than just a pedantic look at the Gospel of Luke, she takes us into the world of children and helps us dream as they dream. Ruth, from her writing, seems to have a bit of the child in her and thus does a fabulous job of connecting stories from today with the Gospel narrative. Silliness, fun and a deep relationship with Jesus all come together in these sermons. This book is a must for anyone trying to reach young people with the important message of adundant life in Jesus.
