Fantastic New Apologetics Resource for Families: Cold-Case Christianity for Kids!
If you’ve read my blog for a while, you’ve often seen me recommend the books of cold-case homicide detective (and former atheist), J. Warner Wallace. Det. Wallace’s books, Cold-Case Christianity and God’s Crime Scene, evaluate the case for the truth of Christianity and God’s existence from a detective’s perspective. They’re excellent, engaging, and wonderfully balanced between being sufficiently meaty and readable at the same time. I love them so much that Cold-Case Christianity and God’s Crime Scene are two of just five books in my apologetics reading plan for Christian parents!
Earlier this year, Det. Wallace announced that he and his wife, Susie, were writing kids’ versions of these books, and I couldn’t have been more excited. Parents regularly email me to ask for resources written directly for children, but there are very few available. I’m thrilled to let you know that the first of these kids’ versions is coming out in just three days!
I had the opportunity to read a pre-release copy for review and wanted to share with you today why you need to get this if you have young kids.
Cold-Case Christianity for Kids: Investigate Jesus with a Real Detective is written for 8- to 12-year-olds and corresponds to the chapter sequence of the adult version of the book, so parents and kids can study together (I love that!). Even though 8 to 12 is the target age range, you can absolutely use this with 6- or 7-year-olds if you’re working through it with them and helping them understand the concepts. My 7-year-old son was so engaged by it that he read the first 60 pages in two days after receiving it. continue reading
