Published on June 07, 1994

When Stars Come Out: Bedtime Psalms for Little Ones Book Cover(1994) for pre-schoolers to age 5 (Christian). This book takes passages from the Psalms and re-writes them in rhyming, child-friendly language. We read of God as the Shepherd who watches over us while we sleep and the God of forgiveness. We also recognize God as Creator by pointing to passages found in the Psalms like Psalm 19:1, “The heavens declare in a voice as still, As moonlight streaming over the hill, The heavens declare in a voice so still—God is there.” And from Psalm 147:4 “Do you suppose the stars have names Like Sally, Henry, Sue, or James? I couldn’t tell—But just the same, God calls every star By name!”

Dear BioLogos reader ...

In the escalating vitriol in our culture, “science” and “faith” have found each other on opposite sides of a polarized divide. Truth and community are under attack.

If there is one thing the pandemic has shown us, it is what science can and cannot do. Scientists and doctors have done amazing things during the pandemic—identified the virus, treated the disease, and developed safe vaccines that work.

But in these polarized times, science can’t reduce anger, forgive sins, build mutual respect, or fill us with compassion for others.

Science alone can’t give us hope. Faith can. Join BioLogos today in reaching a world desperate for hope. Your tax-deductible donation will be the difference between someone encountering misinformation, or a thoughtful, truthful, and hopeful Christian perspective that shows faith and science working hand in hand.
