"I've tried asking grown-ups to explain God, but they aren't very good at it."

Explaining who God is can be really hard. Especially for grown-ups. They like to use confusing words like "Trinity," "outside of time," and "everywhere all at once." What's a kid to do if they can't explain God? Maybe it's not such a problem after all. The little girl in this story realizes there are so many things in the world that are hard to explain, but not hard to accept. Like how people speak in many languages; how the sun is a color, a feeling, and also light; and how people in her family have different names for each other. So what if you can't explain God? What matters is that God loves you--and that's not confusing at all!

In this new picture book by the author of Maybe God Is Like That Too, children will learn that accepting a bit of mystery is part of what it means to have faith.


"What If I Can't Explain God? is a delicate, warm-hearted, and realistic portrayal of a young mind puzzling over God while also finding comfort in his wide, bewildering love."
