The Call To Wonder - R.C. Sproul Jr.

Loving God Like A Child. This book is based on Matthew 18:3 in which Jesus instructs us to be like like little children. The author states his purpose in the introduction is to "recover the childlike virtues you may have lost and that you'll respond to His call to become like little children."
What does it mean to be childlike in our faith? This book covers the answer to that question and others, such as what is our response to God's creation? and How do I love my children and wife like Jesus loves the church?
Particularly striking was his explanation of God's "strong right arm." He explains that it is not only strength, but how that strength functions: it protects, provides, and comforts.
This is an easily readable account of the author's journey on how to become childlike. Also moving is the chapter in which he describes caring for his children.  In The Call to Joy he describes how much he learns from his own children, and how we can all learn from our own.
I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to capture that childlike wonder and amazement of God and loving Him as a child, and to those that have lost it to re-capture it.
This book has been provided to me by Tyndale free of charge for review.
