Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Osborne, president of Lightwave Publishing and bestselling author of 101 Questions Children Ask About God, provides advice for parents seeking to tell their children about spiritual matters. Arranged in a Q&A format, the book explores six religious topics: the nature of God; the reliability and religious role of the Bible; the role of the church in modern society; the function and importance of prayer; the biblical idea of angels and heaven; and the nature of religion. Osborne writes concise prose so that parents who follow his lead can answer their children in the same clear manner. For example, to the question "How can I teach my kids about God when I don't know much about the Bible and my own spiritual life is shaky at best?" Osborne responds by noting that history reveals that kids learn by seeing parents struggle, move toward God and grow. To the question "How do I explain it to my children when their prayers are not answered?" Osborne instructs that such dilemmas teach the reality and value of yes, no and maybe answers in life. Osborne's accessible handbook provides parents with the tools they need to talk with confidence with their children about religion.

From Library Journal

This much-needed resource for helping children think about God encourages parents struggling to define their own beliefs and deepen their spiritual lives. Unlike Jean Grasso Fitzpatrick's Something More: Nurturing Your Child's Spiritual Growth (Penguin, 1991), this offers a decidedly Christian treatment. Osborne gives an excellent overview of the Bible, recommends biblical reference tools, and emphasizes the importance of making the Bible come to life and using a variety of tactics to reinforce its ideas. He also suggests criteria for Bible study and discusses church attendance, prayer, angels, and heaven. This thoughtful, humorous, and very practical guide is recommended for all public libraries.

Format: Paperback
I really like this book. It covers all sorts of aspects of talking to kids about God, but it's fun and easy to read and full of useful stuff, like lists of the most interesting parts of the bible, suggestions on how to talk to kids of different ages, that sort of thing. Very helpful.

Format: Paperback
This book was very helpful. It is a great teaching tool to help parents who do not have a lot of knowledge about Christianity and God, or who have not been to church in a long time. I loved the short summary of the Bible's major events. This is a great book to read while your child is a toddler so you can get ready to anser the big questions that will be coming soon. This book is easy to read.
