Smack-Dab in the Middle of God’s Love is a little children’s book about God’s love for us. Probably written for kids a little older than the 3-4 year old age range, it is definitely characteristic of Brennan Manning’s writing- focused on love and written with detailed imagery (which, as a sidenote, is what probably makes it a little harder for preschoolers to listen to). I love that God’s love was communicated to the children by a man who wasn’t their father– weaving in the theme of “God’s adoption of sons/daughters.”
My only issue with this ebook was that, on the kindle edition, I found a couple of places where the hard copy didn’t transfer well to the ebook format (splitting “love” into “lo” and then “ve” on the next line). Those kind of things drive me crazy, so I am particularly sensitive to those kind of errors.
