Book Review- "Believe Kids Edition" by Randy Frazee
About the book:
You know the story of the Bible, but do you know what it means? This kids’ edition of Believe teaches you the core beliefs, practices, and virtues of Jesus-followers so that you can understand how to live out God’s story in your own life today.
As you walk through the three big categories—beliefs, practices, and virtues—you’ll begin a journey that will take you closer to the heart of Jesus and deeper into the words of Scripture. You’ll learn what the Bible has to say about everything from the nature of God and the identity of Jesus, to prayer, worship, and the fruit of the Spirit. Each big category is divided into ten topics to give you an up-close look at the important things God wants you to know.
From bestselling author and pastor, Randy Frazee, the Believe: Kids’ Edition will take you on a step-by-step tour through the Bible and show you how to think, act, and be more like Jesus.
Becoming more and more like Jesus everyday should be our goal as Christians. We should be able to ask ourselves each day if we were more like Christ or more of this world. This new book gives you tools and helps keep you accountable to thinking and acting like Jesus.
There are still some pictures scattered throughout the story but this book is a chapter book for good readers. I truly think the younger readers will still need assistance from a parent to discuss some of the mature material and for them to relate it to their personal lives.
There are three main sections that answer these three questions: What do I believe? What should I do? and Who am I becoming? Each question has several chapters that discuss important biblical topics.
Each chapter will also include a key question, key idea, key verse, think about it, and discussion questions. This book could be used as a great study for tween aged kids or younger depending on maturity level.
This book is from Zondervan and retails for $11.99. Thank you Zondervan for sending me a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I was not paid for this review and all opinions are 100% my own.
