From the Back Cover
"My prayer is that God will use this book to both motivate and equip you to help your kids develop convictions about their faith."--From the foreword by Dr. Sean McDowell, Biola University professor, speaker, and author
You want to pass on your faith to your children. But in today's increasingly skeptical and hostile world, how can you prepare your kids for the challenges and doubts they will inevitably face? In a friendly, parent-to-parent voice, Natasha Crain brings clarity to this question by walking you through thirty essential conversations about God that parents and kids must have today, including discussions about
· the existence of God
· science and God
· the nature of God
· believing in God
· the difference God makes
Organized so that each chapter builds upon the last, this book provides a cumulative learning experience appropriate for home, church classes, youth groups, small groups, and homeschools. Every chapter has a conversation guide, and content is adaptable for use with kids from elementary age through high school.
"Hey parents: Do you want to reduce the chances that your child will follow the crowd to the point of rejecting Christ and the values and truths you hold so dearly? Then you need to have the conversations that Natasha Crain so brilliantly describes in this book. Prevent heartbreak later by reading and heeding this book now!"--Dr. Frank Turek, president of CrossExamined.org and author of I Don't Have Enough Faith to Be an Atheist and Stealing from God
"I can't think of a more relevant or more needed book for parents raising kids in today's culture. This book on apologetics will lead parents in critical conversations that will help grow and guide kids to be lifelong followers of Christ."--Kristen Welch, author of Raising Grateful Kids in an Entitled World

A few decades ago, Francis Schaeffer’s work was described as a stepping stone into apologetics because it helped people with little background get started—especially college students.
Natasha Crain’s book is an even easier stepping stone. It is geared toward parents who want to get better equipped to answer their children’s questions. Like her earlier book, Keeping Your Kids on God’s Side, it is for parents who recognize how important it is to prepare their children to meet the objections and criticisms they encounter living in a secularized society.
My favorite aspect of the book are Crain’s family-oriented examples and homey illustrations. This is a fun way to learn apologetics. And based on what I hear from other people who have read the book, the stepping stone is working—several readers have become so interested that they are making plans to sign up for MA courses in apologetics, maybe even at Houston Baptist University where I teach.
These parents are now oriented toward becoming life-long learners. I call that a success.
“Just have faith.” This is the answer many Christian parents offer their children when faced with tough questions about the existence of God, the nature of God, the reliability of the Bible, and the myriad of other queries their children will inevitably ask about their faith. With the massive amount of information (not all true) available to our kids via the internet, and the crushing pressure to live up to a certain ideal thanks to social media, our kids will absolutely, 100%, no doubt about it….question their faith. It’s not a matter of if—but when.
This is where Natasha Crain comes in. In her typically relatable, down to earth, clear and concise writing style, she guides Christian parents through answering their kids' questions, but takes it a step further by teaching parents to actually engage their kids in discussion about their faith before they experience their first doubt.
Each chapter begins with great storytelling that connects the imagination with the information presented, and ends with a “Key Points” section, followed by a very practical “Conversation Guide.” In the Conversation Guide section, parents are guided through “Opening the conversation, Advancing the conversation, and Applying the conversation.” This provides a fool-proof method for provoking kids to think deeply about their faith, making them ready to encounter the relentless skeptical attack that is coming for them as they grow up. It also promotes an atmosphere where Christian kids feel safe to talk with their parents about difficult topics in regard to faith. As a Christian parent, this is a tradition I want to start with my kids as young as possible. Thanks to this book, I can do that in a way that is engaging, safe, and fun for my kids.
