In today’s world, our children are bombarded by teaching and messages that argue against what the Bible teaches. It is hard as parents to not only counter this, but teach kids to defend the Bible in an understandable way to their own friends. The Way of the Master for Kids is such a tool for handling the difficult questions that arise, as well as laying a sound foundation for salvation.
Ray Comfort and Kirk Cameron, co-hosts of the television (and now radio) program also titled “Way of the Master,” begin by writing an open letter to parents, encouraging them to “prepare our children to stand strong in their faith in spite of our secular culture.” They then proceed to explain how to do so using this book.
With simple and colorful artwork, the first half of the book is for preschool-age kids. It begins in the Garden of Eden, going through the introduction of sin, how we received the Ten Commandments, and then describes each command. Every page contains large-sized text, an illustration, and then below is a smaller quotation from the Bible that reinforces the point. This section wraps up by explaining that Jesus came to take our punishment for not following the laws, how to be saved, and the hope of Heaven.
The next portion of the book is dedicated to elementary school kids, and is singular in its presentation of youth apologetics. Before reading this, I was unconvinced that such young minds would be capable of understanding the arguments for the existence of God, the fallacies of evolution, and why bad things happen. Comfort and Cameron treat their young readers with respect, giving ample yet clear information that answers a myriad of questions that naturally cross curious intellects.
The Way of the Master for Kids is a book that needs to be on every family bookshelf, and read over and over until it is committed to memory. It gives assurance of salvation, and is an invaluable tool for combating the secular thinking of our postmodern culture. Don’t just buy one copy, this is a book that must be shared. – Anne Walker, Christian Book Previews.com
What should you tell your children if they come home from school saying that the Bible is full of fairy tales and science has proved that man came from monkeys?
