 Reading Group Guide | CHILDREN OF GOD by Mary Doria Russell
Strikingly original, richly plotted, replete with memorable characters and filled with humanity and humor, Children of God is an unforgettable and uplifting novel that is a potent successor to The Sparrow and a startlingly imaginative adventure for newcomers to Mary Doria Russell's special literary magic.
This story forces us to face the task of accepting the less theological and more ethical possibility that God may be merely an idea, yet one that still drives a people to live like children of God who place as much faith in a universal family as they do in the divine.
Children of God engages readers with Russell's provocative themes because it is a fine novel, with a compelling plot, intriguingly complex characters and enough poetry in the writing to convey the heartbreaking tragedy that even the best-intended actions can cause."

 Amazon.fr : Teaching Your Children About God: A Modern Jewish Approach: Livres en anglais: David J. Wolpe   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
Convinced that "a spiritual education is as important to a full life as an intellectual and emotional education," Wolpe, a rabbi and the author of In Speech and Silence (LJ 9/15/92), offers a sensitive and informed guide to explaining God to children from ages four to 14.
He asserts that "belief in God affects self-esteem, and searching for God together can help draw a family close." Questions about God come "fast and furious" from young children: questions about who and what God is, what God expects of us, how we can reach God, and why seemingly senseless things happen despite God's existence.
Even though families may not come up with definitive answers about life, death, joy, sorrow, and God, posing the queries is the first step on a fascinating journey that parents and children will want to share.
