Thank You, God

Praise for J. Bradley Wigger’s Thank You, God.

“If there’s a class somewhere that teaches us what it means to be human, the centerpiece of the curriculum surely is the study of gratitude. Learning to be thankful is basic to being a person. It’s ‘Humanity 101.’ Thankfulness is the natural impulse of the healthy heart. It is the appropriate reciprocal response of the person who is fully alive. We are never too young to enter this course of study.

“In his new book for children, Dr. Brad Wigger, the Second Presbyterian Church Professor of Christian Education here at Louisville Presbyterian Theological Seminary, teaches this course. And, along with Jago, the illustrator of this wonderful book, Brad teaches the course, not from the sometimes isolating heights of a lecturer’s desk, but sitting on the floor surrounded by children. Thank You, God . . . ushers us into the sanity and wisdom of being grateful for all of life. There could hardly be a better preparation for Thanksgiving.”

— Michael Jinkins, “Humanity 101,” Thinking Out Loud
