Case for a Creator for Kids, Updated and Expanded

by Lee Strobel

Review  |   Author Bio  |  Read an Excerpt

Review:

New York Times bestselling author Lee Strobel revisits his arguments for intelligent design in Case for a Creator for Kids, this time using kid-friendly language and illustrations. Working with Rob Suggs and Robert Elmer, Strobel presents the basic reasons to believe in creation, helping kids understand principles such as the Big Bang theory, the complexity of DNA, and the finely-tuned workings of the earth itself, while guiding each child to draw his or her own conclusions from the evidence.

Strobel, best-known for writing Case for Christ, Case for Faith, and Case for a Creator, is well-qualified to write this book. He does an admirable job of explaining difficult scientific concepts in a way that children can understand, and the use of cartoon illustrations engages young readers’ attention. Kids will also enjoy the four short fiction stories at the end of the book that demonstrate a few of the principles Strobel has earlier explained.

Through this book, Strobel seeks to prove Genesis 1:1—that “in the beginning” God really did create “the heavens and the earth.” This book will be a valuable tool for parents or teachers seeking to enlighten children who are asking questions about creation or evolution. However, though most concepts are explained well, a few terms may still be difficult for younger kids to grasp. I recommend this book for children in upper elementary or early junior high. – Ruth Anne Burrell, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
