‘A real children’s Systematic Theology! What a great tool to complement children’s story Bibles in communicating what the bible has to say about great Bible topics; God, Jesus, Salvation, Christian living and what happens in the end.’
Brilliant book; been looking for something to go through with my 4 & 5 year olds and this is perfect - wish I had it earlier. Enough to generate a wee bit of a discussion, and short enough to leave them wanting a bit more each night!
This is a really lovely book - quality pictures and print. The content is great - very simply put. Although I don't think the title is incorrect, it might be slightly off putting to some. I am giving it to families for Christmas.
Excellent book. We have used it in addition to reading Bible stories and my 3 and 5 year old have really enjoyed it. We have also given it away to non-Christian friends whose children are asking 'spiritual' questions. Would recommend!
This has been perfect for our nearly-4 year old - an excellent way to introduce the characteristics of God, with a short passage, simple question & lovely picture to illustrate the main point. She has loved it - we highly recommend it!
This would be a great book if there wasn't a HUGE theological problem. It states that Jesus coming to earth was an after thought. That only when He saw people behaving badly was the plan for Jesus to come concieved.
This one point ruins the whole book. God was not surprised by human sin. Jesus is the lamb that was chosen and slain from the foundations of the world for us. (Revelation 13:8, Ephesians 1:5, 1 Peter 1:20)
His coming was not “Plan B.” It was ALWAYS “Plan A.”
Equally, if the Trinity was surprised by men sinning, then God would not be omniscient and His original plan failed, making God fallible.
And we know He is omniscient and infallible.
Children shouldn't be taught this. They should be taught the biblical truth: that the Trinity always planned for Jesus to come to be our Savior.
A clear, concise resource for small children. We read one page & the accompanying question a day to our child (2). This book does well at encapsulating Christian truths. Also, the illustrations keep him fixed on the book. Although probably overly simplistic for older kids, it would definitely not be a waste of time going through this book.
I wasn't initially sure how I would use this with my children when it arrived but fortunately my daughter (age 7) did. She has been reading it to her brother (age 5) over breakfast, a few pages at a time and he answers the questions at the bottom of each page (I just get the tricky questions that sometimes follow!). She also sometimes does a little quiz of earlier questions. The language is clear, the illustrations are beautiful and it helps to answer some of the questions children naturally have (Who made God? Why can't we see God? etc). A wonderful supplement to bible stories for pre-school and younger primary aged children, adding another dimension to children's knowledge and understanding of God.
I've started reading this with my 4 and 2 year old and it has been fantastic. It's God made 'grabbable' for young hearts and minds. Cornerstone truths are explained in simple language, and basic questions at the bottom of the page help reinforce the message. My 4 year old asks for it every night (unheard of) and we've nearly completed the whole book within several weeks. It's a joy to read! Highly recommended.
