God's Crime Scene For Kids
I love J. Warner Wallace's books, and I'm thrilled he's taken his homicide detective skills to Christianity and apologetics. As a Dateline fan, I already "knew" him from the show, and thought it was super cool he also happens to be a Christian. In God's Crime Scene For Kids, he follows on the heels Cold-Case Christianity For Kids and teaches kids how to read the "clues" God has left in the universe to defend and explain God's existence.
"In this companion to Cold-Case Christianity for Kids, Jason uncovers a mystery in his grandmother’s attic. He and his friends, Hannah, Daniel and Jasmine, enlist the help of Detective Jeffries at the Jr. Detective’s Academy. Along the way, they develop the skills needed to investigate the mystery and the evidence of God’s existence. The cadets learn logical-thinking skills as they examine the contents of a mysterious box and the vast universe.
In God’s Crime Scene for Kids, real-life detective J. Warner Wallace shows kids ages 8 to 12 what skills are needed to solve Jason’s mystery, and at the same time looks at evidence in the universe that demonstrates God is the creator. Ultimately, kids will learn how to make their own case for God’s existence."
I have a 7 year old, a 9 year old, and an 11 year old, and this was enjoyable for all three of them. Kids are often confident in their beliefs, but don't know how to explain or share them with others. This book helps to bridge that gap between belief and knowledge. God's Crime Scene for Kids is full of engaging, comic-book-style illustrations and "CSI Assignment" sidebars that encourage kids to look up "clues" from the Bible. An engaging "detective" story full of interesting characters is used to draw out truths and teach children how God created the universe, and how to share this with others. This is a thoroughly fun and enjoyable book for boys and girls alike. I highly recommend it!
