My Next Book: God’s Upside-Down Kingdom

I’m excited to be able to tell you about the writing project that’s kept me busy since I finished Eat with Joya book about Jesus for children with the working title God’s Upside-Down Kingdom.

Equally appropriate for church-based Christian education, homeschooling, or Christian school, God’s Upside-Down Kingdom is the third volume of the Telling God’s Story series, published by Olive Branch Books,the religious education division of Peace Hill Press (who publish the fabulous Story of the World by Susan Wise Bauer, author of The Well-Trained Mind).

Scholar (and blogger) Peter Enns wrote the introductory text and the first two volumes of the series, which I’ve been using with my children at home. I’m honored and grateful to be participating in this project. Not only it is a blessing to be a part of a project aimed to introduce young children to Jesus, but the time I spent studying the Gospels as I wrote helped me to understand Jesus–and the upside-down ways of God’s Kingdom–in new ways.

If you’re in the market for some quality curricula for Christian education that’s “free from narrow sectarian and political agendas,” I encourage you to check out the Telling God’s Story series!

  1. Exciting news, Rachel. Great too that you are not only writing as a blessing to others but that you have been blessed in the writing as well. Looking forward to learning more about the project as you move through the process.


  2. I look forward to it, Rachel. I found your blog from the Peace Hill Press announcement. We’re on volume 1 of Telling God’s Story now. Thanks also for your link to the Buechner interview. He’s one of my heroes. All the best to you.

  3. Reading this news made me cry – what a beautiful project. “God’s Upside-Down Kingdom” sounds a little Greg-Boyd-y, which warms a special place in my heart of course!

  4. I didn’t know you were doing this! We use this curriculum. It is superior. I love Peter Enns, and I’m impressed that you are working together. Congratulations!
