The Radical Book for Kids (New Growth Press, October 2016)
A kid-sized explorer’s guide to faith and life
The Radical Book for Kids is a fun-filled explorer’s guide to the Bible, church history, and life for boys and girls age 8 and up. Along with examining some of the most exciting realities in the universe, the handbook is vibrantly illustrated and chock-full of fun facts and ideas. Deep truths are communicated to elementary and middle-school aged kids while stimulating their curiosity and sense of adventure within a gospel-centered framework.
This power-packed book is “radical” in more ways than you might think! It is “radical” in the sense of the original meaning of the word, “going to the root or origin.” The Radical Book for Kids will take children on a fascinating journey into the ancient roots of the Christian faith. But it’s also “radical” in the more modern sense of being revolutionary. Kids read about men and women who learned to trust Jesus and stand for him—displaying radical faith—even when everything seemed against them.
But The Radical Book for Kids is also “radical”—meaning fun or cool—in the eyes of a child. Kids read about ancient weapons (and how to make one), learn about jewels, create pottery, discover ancient languages, use secret codes, locate stars, tell time using the sun, play a board game that’s 3,000 years old—and more.
What an excellent book! This for sure needs to be on your Christmas list.
This is a great hard back book, perfect for kids devotions. 67 unique chapters, two-five pages each. This is geared for ages 8-14 and is meant for them to read on their own. I always encourage my kids to do individual devotions along with the Bible study time we do as a family. This is the perfect size for them to read and get some radical information from.
Radical means "Going to the root" of something. This book takes them to the root of who God is and how Jesus is our root.
Great chapter titles include;
Finding the Center of the Universe
Hard Work? No Sweat!
How to make Pottery
Grasping the Gospels
What church was like for the first Christians.
The book is written to the kids on their level. It includes great graphics and word pictures for them to understand the concepts even better.
Check out the table of contents, skip around, or read straight through. However a child chooses to explore it, The Radical Book for Kids will open new vistas for their imagination and help to make straight paths for their feet.
