Book Review: "I Believe in Jesus- Leading your Child to Christ" by John MacArthur
Discover how to lead your child to Christ.
It's the most important conversation you'll ever have with your child, but that doesn't make it easy. The gospel is simple enough for little ones, but has kept theologians debating for years. So when it comes to explaining the Good News to your son or daughter, where do you start?
In I Believe in Jesus, John MacArthur walks children though the gospel of Jesus in a way that is easy to understand, and equips parents, grandparents, teachers, and loved ones to share the familiar story of God's love.
By opening the door to conversations that lead to salvation, this picture books has the potential to change lives forever.
This was an easy book to read and it paints a very clear picture for kids and parents to easily discuss the elements on the page to make sure the child understands what decision they could be making. That decision to follow Christ is a big one that will impact them forever so making sure you have ample time to discuss this book further in details is a must. I don't recommend it being a bed time story as that will not give you the time you need to take on it.
The author, John MacArthur, takes you through the gospel very well from creation to birth of Jesus, to His sacrifice. I like the last few pages as it lays out what salvation is and means.
The author includes scriptures on almost every page which is nice to relate the whole story back to Biblical references. However, it would have been nice if there was more guidance for parents on how to lead their child to Christ and what the next steps would be. I feel like there could be some major improvements in this area.
Overall I think this is a great resource for parents who are unsure on how to lead their child to Jesus and his love and forgiveness.
