God keeps his promises in amazing and often surprising ways. The Bible stories in God Rescues show how God watched over his people and used Moses to save the Israelites from trouble.
Just as God watched over and rescued his people then, even now we are safe with Jesus. The perfect Passover lamb helps us remember God’s promise to forgive, and he keeps his promise to forgive today through Jesus, the Lamb of God.
Author Jared Kennedy uses simple words and concepts to help toddlers and preschoolers understand that God takes care of us and always keeps his promises. This beautifully illustrated board book for ages three to five is part of the Beginner’s Gospel Story Book series.
The preschool-friendly pictures in God Rescues will also help teach about shapes, colors, and counting. Children will be captivated by the bright, modern illustrations and the simple encouraging content will turn their hearts to Jesus.

“God Rescues introduces young children to the story of the Exodus and the first Passover. Memorable images of baby Moses in the river, a staff turning into a snake, yucky plagues, and the deep Red Sea will help children begin to grasp how God uses his mighty power to rescue his people not only from their enemies, but from their sin.”
Betsy Childs Howard, Editor, The Gospel Coalition; author of Polly and the Screen Time Overload.
“Jared Kennedy takes big truths and makes them digestible and applicable for young children. Parents will find this to be an excellent resource to teach their children about the story of Moses, the Israelites, and the exodus. At the same time, it forms a meaningful and memorable gospel connection emphasizing that God’s rescue is for everyone!”
