It begins with Part One: Looking for God, and Part Two: God is Very Great. Each "part" consists of about 5-8 individual lessons on the subject, using people from the Bible to learn from, in how God uses them. Then we are taken through the introduction of sin, God's law, what Jesus did for us, prayer, and several others, ending with Part Fourteen: Things That Are to Happen. Each lesson includes "something to talk about" (questions for the children to answer about the lesson), a related Scripture from the Bible, suggested Bible reading, a hymn to sing that relates to the lesson, and a prayer to say, asking the Lord to help us with those things we learned that day in our lesson.
Needless to point out here, I can't say enough about this devotional. It is a wonderful way to teach your children about God in a thorough and consistant way, and help them to love learning about the Lord and his nature, and what he does for his children. You'll love going through it with your little ones and watching their love and understanding for God grow.
My 3yr old daughter grasps most of it and reading through it requires VERY little adjustment even for a 3yr old's theology. Book has HUGE focus on who, what, how, where, why God/Jesus Christ is - which I think is spectacular - and a lot less on the "7 steps to sanctification" kinda stuff, or "how to be a kind person". While these things are not bad - will honestly still get you straight to hell without Christ :)
Questions at the end of each lesson are kinda funky, some WAY too abstract for younger children but.. you should be asking your own anyway, use printed ones as spring-boards! This book WILL help you lay the proper foundation of Christianity for young children. I found myself only making ever-so-slight adjustments to the wording/teaching as I read through with my daughter, and I am VERY picky about content. IGNORE the nay-Sayers who complain about using KJV wording, its very sparse and should be easy for any adult to edit on the fly with modern wording/pronouns etc.
FYI I am a professionally trained pastor/bible teacher so.. I've read a LOT of these kinds of books.
Highly recommend for ages 3-10
So, instead of asking a question and giving an answer, the concepts are presented in a conversational fashion. While I do agree with one reviewer who balked at certain word choices like 'happy', if the adult will read the material first, those words can be substituted with more appropriate ones. In other words, it shouldn't be a deal breaker. I've also found that some of the Scripture readings at the end of the section aren't the best ones. Again, with a little prep work, the adult, using their own Bible concordance, can find Scriptures that relate to the section a little better and use the same verbiage. This is a good thing because you are studying right along with your children.
Moving along. The questions after each reading are great and while not always terribly thought-provoking, ensure the child/children were listening and grasp the main concepts. The hymns are strange to me because I only know the tune of a few of them. We usually skip them or sing the ones we know that speak of the same things.Read more ›
