Book Review: "Believe: Kids Edition"
"Believe: Kids' Edition" is edited by Randy Frazee. It is divided into three sections, each with ten chapters.
"Think" is about the key beliefs of the Christian life and ask the question, "What do I believe?". Included are: God, Personal God, Salvation, The Bible, Identity in Christ, Church, Humanity, Compassion, Stewardship, and Eternity
"Act" is about the key practices of the Christian life and ask the question, "What should I do?"
Included are: Worship, Prayer, Bible Study, Single-Mindedness, Total Surrender, Biblical Community, Spiritual Gifts, Offering My Time, Giving My Resources, and Sharing My Faith.
"Be" is about the key virtues of the Christian life and ask the question, "Who am I becoming?"
Included are: Love, Joy, Peace, Self-Control, Hope, Patience, Kindness/Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness, and Humility.
Each chapter opens with a Key Question, Key Idea, and Key Verse. This is followed by a "Think About it" section and an Introduction. Throughout the chapter, core truths are shown in blue ink to make them stand out. Each chapter is finished with Discussion Questions. At the very end of the book there is a list of the Bible excerpts used in each chapter.
I think that this book is a good springboard to get children to studying and understanding the Bible and what it means to be a Christian.
"Believe: Kids' Edition" is available in paperback:
