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 duahgter, 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 to share the familiar story of God's love.

Review:

While Christian parents agree that helping children to understand who God is is of the utmost importance, many struggle to find the words to explain the gospel to them. John MacArthur has successfully written a concise yet complete account of the gospel message in I Believe in Jesus, written entirely for young minds and hearts. With stirring watercolor illustrations from Melinda MacArthur, the author's daughter, I Believe in Jesus will hold the attention of little ones as well as communicate the most important message they will ever hear. Beginning at creation and moving through to eternity, MacArthur speaks directly to children in simple language by bringing theology (even tough subjects like the trinity) to a basic level. Pointed questions that ask, "Have you ever noticed how hard it is to always be good, kind, loving, and unselfish?" point out the child's need for a savior, while insightful answers give hope to young readers, saying, "Our sins should keep us out of heaven, but instead, God invites everyone--you too!--to come to Him and ask for forgiveness for our sins." As the child matures, he or she will begin to understand the Word of God in accordance with the childlike explanation coupled with it. This is sure to bring understanding that leads to wisdom (and hopefully repentance!) rather than the knowledge of a good story. The Word of God is trusted in this short story to change the hearts of children, hoping to usher them into His kingdom at a young, blessed age. --Jill Heatherly
