All parents want their children to grow up, well-prepared for life. I hope my own kids (all under the age of 11) learn to live in the reality of God's world: that there's a God, He's made this good (yet now-fallen) world, and He's come down into our world as the Rescuer from sin. These realities and many more are declared and reinforced all throughout God's Word. So, if the next generation is going to be ready for life, then all ages need to be saturated with Scripture.
That's one reason why I've spent the last few years writing The Radical Book for Kids: Exploring the Roots and Shoots of Faith (more on that title in future posts). Being published by New Growth Press in October, this book is for all kids, ages 8 and up. A quick search on amazon.com will yield various books promoting: “everything a boy/girl should know or do.” Yet all of them are secular in content and approach. The Radical Book for Kids is different; it’s what I wanted my own children to know about God our Savior, the Word He has written, and the world He has created.
