“For this is the covenant that I will make with you after those days, declares the Lord: I will put my law within them, and I will write it on their hearts. And I will be their God, and they shall be my people.”(Jeremiah 31:33)
I have been listening to a podcast lately by Dr Haiser, an Old Testament Biblical scholar. There is a statement that he said in one episode that has been on my mind and has kind of stuck: “God wants a human family; He has His spiritual family, but He wants a human one… The world as we know it is a mess, but He would rather us go through the pain, anguish, the suffering, the joy and everything in between than to spend eternity without us, which is the other option” (paraphrased).
This revelation of God’s unwavering commitment to restoring our hearts and reconciling a human family to Himself, that would love and obey Him in a manner that He deserves is the reason why Superbook exists. We see our job as being vessels that proclaim the Good News of the Gospel through the Bible and working alongside the Holy Spirit in fulfilling Jeremiah 31:33. Providing children and parents alike with an exciting, media-rich and immersive experience of the Bible so that His law may be within them, so that it may be written on their hearts.
We believe the best way to do this is by being part of children’s social framework, using multi-media products such as the Bible App, website, DVD’s, TV broadcasting and more. Reaching families, caregivers, and communities through our various programmes. We want the Bible to be the content that influences children’s worldview, impacts character, and informs their moral judgement. The best way for us to do that is by being where they are.
We are also passionate about serving the church community as a whole through training and empowering children’s ministry leaders with resources that assist them in ministering to children effectively.
We prepare the world for the coming King by focusing on children and allowing them to become our partners in this glorious mission. A big Thank YOU as our partners for making this possible.
