Just Because takes children on an exciting journey through the Bible as a continous story. Children see the biblical characters come alive, and anticipate with excitment the coming of Jesus to 'crush the serpent's head' as Satan tries to discover His identity. Each chapter takes about twenty minites to read and ends with a short biblical lesson. Kids love it.
This is a story about us. It’s about you and me and Fred and Grandma, and, well, it would take too long to write down all our names because this story is about everyone. Everyone, that is, who has ever been born and even everyone who still hasn’t been born yet. It’s an exciting story too. It’s about why we are here alive and why some of us are not alive and why some of us can’t sing for nuts and why some of us are going to heaven and why some of us don’t even know where heaven is.
This is a true story. That means you can believe it, and if you believe it you will ﬁnd out how to get to heaven even if you can’t sing for nuts. It starts a bit strange, because it doesn’t have a start. You see, it’s about the Lord, and the Lord never started. But don’t worry, because you’ll understand soon enough even if you’re not real brainy. This story is about everyone and for everyone. So this is how it starts.
Once upon a time there was no such thing as time because the Lord hadn’t made it yet. And there was only one place, and it was so big that it had no end. It just kept on going and going and going forever and ever. Whew! That’s a long way. This place is called paradise, or heaven, if you prefer. It’s the place where the Lord lives and the place where people like Grandma and Aunty Jean go too if they know the Lord, because He’s the owner. The Lord has always been there because the Lord has always been. He doesn’t have birthdays like you and me. The Lord wanted to have millions of angels and people enjoying heaven with Him so He started His plan.
Now the Lord knows everything, even about things that haven’t happened yet. He looked into the future and saw lots of things that made Him very sad. But He also saw lots of people laughing and singing in heaven. He knew many sad things would happen to many people for a little time when they were alive, but He would wipe away their tears and use the bad things to make them happy forever with Him.
Now no people were living with the Lord. He hadn’t made any people yet, and He hadn’t even made the earth yet. But He made heaps and heaps of angels so they could enjoy heaven as well. The angels really enjoyed living there.
You see, it is a very cool place. Not cool like it’s cold. . .nah, but cool like it’s just very cool. It never, ever rains, and it never gets dark; so you can’t go to bed because it’s always daytime. And you never get tired or lonely or sick, and you always feel really great. How’s that for cool?
