Help the Bible become a life-long companion for faith and spiritual growth for the children in your church.
Wondering about the Bible with Children encourages natural curiosity and wonder as they read the biblical faith stories.This book addresses the following questions:
- How do we talk about miracle stories, healing stories, and the creation stories? What about violence?
- What’s my role in helping children learn about the Bible and feel comfortable asking questions about what they read?
- When kids ask about the relevancy of the Bible for today, what do we say?
How we read and interpret the Bible with children may mean the difference between whether or not it will continue to be an important source for their faith development as they become young adults. We want to teach them in ways that they don’t have to unlearn later.
Written by an expert in children’s ministry as a guide for anyone helping with the Celebrate Wonder Sunday school curriculum; however, it is relevant for all adults who want to explore ways to help children read, engage, wrestle, and grow into deeper understanding of the Bible. Wondering about the Bible with Children is for those who come to the Bible with souls open to be fed and who want their children to seek faith and wisdom.
