About the Book

One day my son asked me, “Mom, how can God be a rock if He is alive?” Figures of speech are often used in our daily language, and they are also found throughout the Bible. Many children who think more literally find these phrases difficult to understand. This is especially common for those on the autism spectrum. Interpreting idioms can be particularly challenging for our literal thinkers. This book will help “shed light” on just a few of those found in the Bible.
