The Moon is Always Round

by Jonathan Gibson

Coming September 23, 2019

Even young children want answers to the hard questions about God and suffering. In The Moon Is Always Round, seminary professor and author Jonathan Gibson shares the conversations he had with his son in response to his sister’s death. Using the vivid imagery of the moon, which despite appearances, is always round, Jonathan Gibson reminds children of all ages that God’s goodness is present in the most difficult of times, even if we can’t always see it.
