The only thing I found confusing was why a bear and a red goose are the mom and dad - and that they have two children, a bear cub and a small red gosling. Not a big deal but it distracted me from the story a little.
I love that the series shows a natural progression. Book one teaches that God is not confined to a body. So where is God? God is everywhere! Once again, father (Brown Bear) and mother (Red Goose) handle their children’s (John and Charity) questions about God. The best part of this book is that it doesn’t just say that God is everywhere, it actually provides you with an explanation of what that actually means.
John holds up his cookie and asks if God is in the cookie. This would be true in a pantheistic (the universe is God) or panentheistic (the universe is in God) concept of God, but not in the Christian theistic concept. Craig explains the difference clearly, without using big words. When we say that God is everywhere, what we really mean is that he knows what is happening everywhere. Since he doesn’t have a body, he doesn’t exist in any place at all.
I have to commend Dr. Craig on managing to take such a complex topic and putting it into such simple terms without completely misrepresenting or misinterpreting the doctrine. The story helps avoid the two errors of “God exists in a specific location” (like heaven) and God is spread throughout the universe (like an invisible gas). Rather, he hits upon the balance that God is fully everywhere at every time.
I also commend him on having the children in the book ask questions and leave follow-up questions for the children reading the book to ask. What does it mean that God is everywhere? The answers to that are endless…you are never alone, God is always with you, God is keeping you safe, and so on. These are beautiful books and no other series I’ve found manages to have the theological depth combined with the simplicity Dr. Craig provides.

Great set of books. Highly recommend them. Too bad, though, that they couldn't be sold in a set. Really need to have all of them to give children a well-rounded picture of 'what... Read morePublished 18 months ago by SuzieQ
Using these books opens up dialogue with my kids, in a way which they can understand it. It is a good way to talk about the characteristics of God, and I would recommend it.Published on May 10, 2014 by Mradood

This book series seems to be ok but I am not sure that it will be very useful in teaching the doctrines of God to my little Bible club children.Published on January 20, 2014 by J. Lunde
William Lane Craig did a wonderful job at putting all these books together. They are "Mere Christianity" for children, and in a language they can understand.Published on January 8, 2014 by richminon
