This week my 8-year-old son, Nate, and I had the pleasure of reading Cold-Case Christianity For Kids, Investigate Jesus With A Real Detective. We received a free copy of this book from LitFuse Publicity and we are sharing our book review with you all today. All opinions expressed in this post are 100 percent honest and ours.
About The Book:
Between the ages of 8 and 12, kids often start to wonder if Christianity is true. In Cold-Case Christianity for Kids, detective J. Warner Wallace draws readers into the thrill of high-stakes investigation by showing them how to think rather than telling them what to think. In this children’s companion to the bestselling Cold-Case Christianity, detective Wallace gets kids excited about testing witnesses, examining the evidence, and investigating the case for Christianity. Includes author illustrations and links to a website (coldcasechristianityforkids.com) where kids can download activities, fill in case notes, and earn a certificate of merit.

My personal Review:
I enjoyed reading this book with my 8-year-old son, Nate. He liked the illustrations that run throughout the book as well as learning how real detectives use all the steps to solve crimes and mysteries. Each chapter teaches another tool or process that detectives use to work on their case, and I know my son found it very interesting to see the kinds in the book follow those steps to solve the case. I really like how the author relates the skills the kids learn to check and explore their faith more. We strive daily to teach our son about the Bible and our faith but I think this book will teach him to search out and discover more for himself in the Bible.
Another great thing about this book is that author has a website that goes along with each chapter that offers print outs to use as you go through the book. I thought it was a great interactive book from that really held my son’s attention. He looked forward to each new chapter and work we could do together. Since I seen how much my son enjoyed the book and learning to investigate his faith more, I plan to do this book and the activities from the website with my Wednesday night kids class at church. I think they will enjoy it as much as my son did. I would recommend this book to those that have kids that love solving mysteries or learning how to dig deeper behind things they learn and believe in.
