Why do I bring your attention to this book? It is really a set up to introduce you to another book by Josh McDowell that we have recently ordered called Children Demand a Verdict. Our 10 year old, K is a very intellectual child. She has lots of questions and is not about following blindly. After having had a recent conversation with her about God, which got very deep for her age, she replied, "It is going to be a
long time before I am sure I believe in this stuff!" And this opened the door for the need for "evidence" that we can study together. This book is written directly to the audience of children, so is much easier to comprehend.
As parents, we felt the need to provide this solid foundation of indisputable evidence of history and fact so that as we are raising them to be Godly Women, they will have no doubts as to the validity of God's Word as their authority.
I have seen so many teenagers fall away from their faith because they never claimed it as their own. While they lived at home, they lived under the umbrella of their parent's faith, and at the time, that was enough for them. As they go off to college or get married, their faith seems to be left behind in their parents home. We are hoping to instill their personal faith at very early ages so that it becomes part of who they are. The hardest part of their lives will be when they leave home and have to defend their faith to non-believers. Laying this foundation is crucial in their success in standing firm in their faith. For my 8 and 10 year olds, I only have 8 more years to help them establish an unshakable faith. I'd better get started!!
