What People are saying about Feeding the Lambs

“A consistent church liturgy serves the unity of the church in which children can participate. They are the church’s future and Chris Thoma lays out plans for assuring that this will happen in our congregations.”

Chairman of the Systematics Department
Concordia Theological Seminary, Fort Wayne, Indiana
Author of Discourses in Matthew, James: The Apostle of Faith, and three volumes in the Confessional Lutheran Dogmatics series

“Rather than diluting the liturgy to a child-like level that will quickly render it obsolete, Thoma offers an approach that will draw children into the Divine Service, the church year, and hymnody. This book is a must-read for pastors and Christian educators as well as parents.”

“This book will be most helpful to parents teaching their children the greatness of God’s grace manifested through Jesus Christ in the liturgy by the power of the Holy Spirit.”

Assistant Pastor and German Language Teacher, Our Savior Evangelical Lutheran Church
