"Cold-Case Christianity for Kids" Blog Tour

Cold-Case Christianity for Kids (David C. Cook, October 2016)

Between the ages of 8 and 12, kids often start to wonder if Christianity is true.

In Cold-Case Christianity for Kids, detective J. Warner Wallace draws readers into the thrill of high-stakes investigation by showing them how to think rather than telling them what to think. In this children’s companion to the bestselling Cold-Case Christianity, detective Wallace gets kids excited about testing witnesses, examining the evidence, and investigating the case for Christianity. Includes author illustrations and links to a website where kids can download activities, fill in case notes, and earn a certificate of merit.

My Take:

Logic. Reason. Faith.

Can these three things ever go together?

According to Cold-Case Christianity for Kids - and the original book for adults - the answer is yes.

With an easy tone that is both conversational and compelling, J. warner and Susie Wallace take kids through a fascinating look at the evidence for Christ, His life, His death, and His resurrection.

My daughter is seven (the book is recommended for ages 8-12), but she thoroughly enjoyed this book. She liked how there was a mystery-type tone to the book and that she got to think for herself about something that she has mostly just been told about. We talk about God and Jesus and the Bible every day. We teach our daughter about faith and about how there are some things that we were just never be able to understand here on Earth. But this book allows kids to dig deeper and discover Jesus in a new way that relies very much on logic and reason. It really put everything into perspective - how the logic, reason, and faith very much go together in the Christian life.

There is always a danger with children that they respond to the truths of scripture only because they have been told to by their parents and other adults in their lives. Cold-Case Christianity for Kids challenges kids to explore and embrace the love and salvation from Jesus for their very own.

My husband and I really enjoyed going through this book with our daughter, and I'm sure we will be referencing it in the future. I would love to see other books of this type for kids!
