I'm very impressed. This is basically an in-depth, verse-by-verse study of the book of Galatians for children. There's so much more here than the usual over-simplifications of the gospel that Jesus died for our sins and we should ask him into our hearts. Each reading covers a key element of the gospel. Imputation, justification, sanctification, covenants...all these and more are discussed. The concepts are clearly presented and unpacked in simple, easy to understand terms.
One of the things I love about Ms. Meade's books is that she doesn't water things down...she has a real gift for putting difficult concepts into terms that are simple enough for young children to grasp. Using her books together, I've seen my kids have several "a-ha" moments where they were able to clearly understand and articulate back to me truths that I didn't fully understand until adulthood. This book continues to follow that trend. It's engaging and meaty, perfect for family or individual use. My nine year old is using it for his personal devotional time, but I plan to go through it to discuss as a family in the near future. I highly recommend both God's Mighty Acts in Creation and God's Mighty Acts in Salvation, and I'm hopeful there will possibly be more titles in the series!
Thanks to Angie Cheatham at Crossway for providing review copies to me.
Each devotion could be used as a family worship piece, with an "As For Me and My House" section that provides discussion points and home activities from the Bible. And, unlike most devotion books that seem story driven rather than Bible driven, they each take the child through a specific segment of the Bible (the Epistle to the Galatians for this one and verses and passages relating to creation for the other, divided by day of creation into the topics light and water; land and plants; sun, moon, and stars; birds and fish; and animals and people).
(Many thanks to Crossway for providing this book for me to review. My opinions are my own.)
Rarely as I read these books, I did come across an example that was not exactly the way I would have put it to my children. The example that comes to my mind from this book was just a little more blunt than the way I have been teaching my children to say things. I know I sometimes am particularly sensitive to blunt speech, often to a fault I think. Starr Meade's heart is very apparent through all of her talks and there is love and grace in the entries in this book. I loved so many of her illustrations that gave me pause to think--things I hadn't considered before.
I highly recommend this book and God's Mighty Acts in Creation. I think that they would be most appropriate for 8-12 year olds. The truths are definitely relevant for a 13 year old and 7 year old as well, so if you are wondering if they would be right for your family, you can read samples from these books on Amazon.
It is such an encouragement to me as a parent to find good books that I look forward to reading with my children that I know will help them understand the truths that I so dearly want them to know in their hearts.
Please note that I was given a complimentary copy of this book for review by Crossway Books.
