I am thrilled to bring you guys this next book review! If you remember from a few months back I reviewed “Cold Case Christianity” and we loved it. Well, this week we are taking a closer look at “God’s Crime Scene for Kids”, a follow up to the previous book. I hope you enjoy this week’s review!
Disclaimer: I was given a free copy of this book by LitFuse Publicity to read and share my honest review here with you guys. All opinions expressed in my Personal Review section are my own.
About the Book:
In this companion to Cold-Case Christianity for Kids, Jason uncovers a mystery in his grandmother’s attic. He and his friends, Hannah, Daniel, and Jasmine, enlist the help of Detective Jeffries at the Jr. Detective’s Academy. Along the way, they develop the skills needed to investigate the mystery and the evidence of God’s existence. The cadets learn logical-thinking skills as they examine the contents of a mysterious box and the vast universe.
In God’s Crime Scene for Kids, real-life detective J. Warner Wallace shows kids ages 8 to 12 what skills are needed to solve Jason’s mystery, and at the same time looks at the evidence in the universe that demonstrates God is the creator. Ultimately, kids will learn how to make their own case for God’s existence.
My Personal Review:
I was thrilled to get another chance for my son and me to read another book from this author. We read his last book “Cold Case Christianity” and really enjoy it. The same is true of this follow-up title. I love the way Warner uses a fictional story and combines it with facts and truths about God and Creation. I find that this held my son’s attention really well, unlike if we were just covering a more straight-laced devotional lesson. Don’t get me wrong, those devotionals are important and we do them as a family, but let’s face it he is 8 and his little mind wonders if the lesson is not on his level so this book was a fun way to learn a few things. The book even makes the child reading the story part of the team of kids solving the book’s mystery. How fun is that!
You know what else is great? The author has a website that helps the kids get even more involved with the investigating. They have videos and fun worksheets that can be done as you go along. Overall we loved this book, and I felt like it was a great way for us to spend some time together as a family and practice our detective skills as we dug deeper into Creation and the wonder of Salvation.
