Profound: having intellectual depth and insight; difficult to fathom or understand; extending far below the surface; all encompassing  
My thoughts: When I received God's Great Love for You, I was prepared for another lovely, sweet, charming faith-based children's book. I was truly surprised at the depth of the simple statements from the start to the finish of this lovely picture book.

As Christians we know and realize that God has a great and wonderful love for us. Well, for all of mankind. He did, after all, give his only begotten Son to be our Saviour. But to calmly sit down and read a sweet little children's book that unabashedly states that God has a great love for YOU! That's right! You. Me. The kid down the street. All of us. And then to contemplate, even briefly, such a statement makes us realize just how profound that idea, that action, that depth of love is in actuality is almost beyond comprehension.

This is a book to read repeatedly to the young child and with each reading, the adult should read slowly contemplating and comprehending the depth expressed in the simple statements. While a sweet reading for a child, it becomes a source of soul-reaching contemplation for the mature reader.
"Deeper than all the oceans/ Higher than the moon and the stars”
“God’s great love for you is... perfect"
"will never end”
The illustrations feature a bright-eyed little girl with beautiful backgrounds and include a trailing "ribbon" or flutter of specks that seem to signify fluidity and continuity. Another understated feature of the illustrations is the simple white dove that is present throughout. As Christians know, the dove is symbolic of the Holy Spirit or God's presence. The book is charming.
The bare, stark beauty of God's perfection and how that perfection is shown in a perfect love for us.

About the book: God’s Great Love for You, written by #1 New York Times bestselling author and respected pastor Rick Warren, takes children on a whimsical and heartfelt journey that lets them know God’s love is with them wherever they go. With breathtaking illustrations by Chris Saunders, the simple yet poignant text comes alive as a child journeys to places far and near and discovers God’s great love is perfect, and everywhere, and will never end.
God’s Great Love
Created the entire universe
And everything in it
Including you.
No matter where we are or how isolated we are God is there.
Always when we sleep at night in the darkness of sleep or despair.
