Product Description

'Taste and see that the Lord is good.' - Psalm 34 v 8

Beginning with God helps parents with young children to explore the Bible with their child. This book provides a simple way to start your child in a regular habit of reading God's Word and growing to know God, who loves them.

We hope this book will help you and your child to explore the Bible together. Along the way you will read about the beginning of everything; meet Abraham, who was called a 'friend of God'; and be thrilled by the wonderful things said and done by God's perfect Son, Jesus.

In today's culture so much pressure is put on us to feed our children well. We pray that this material will help those of us with pre-schoolers to nourish them with the word of God.

Beginning with God has been designed to work with The Beginner's Bible, but it can also be used with most other infant Bibles.

Each day is split into the following sections:

The main course: read today's true story from the Bible; answer some simple questions; pray together; then stick in today's colourful picture of the story.

Appetiser: an optional activity to grab your child's attention before the story.

A snack for the journey: a conversation to have while out and about.

Make it and munch it: optional craft activities to help your child remember today's true story.

Beginning with God

This book is designed to provide parents with the resources to start reading the Bible on a regular basis with their preschool children: it contains stories from both the Old and the New Testaments and suggests ideas for activities that could be used to reinforce what has been read each day. The format is friendly, which means that this book would be useful for a new parent who had no experience of teaching but who wanted to bring their children up to know and love the Bible. There are stickers to use as rewards and advice on how to pray with your child.
This book is obviously the first of a series, which is its main weakness. Six of the New Testament stories are connected with the birth of the Lord Jesus, but there is no mention of his death and resurrection (the last story tells how Jesus calms the storm). The book seems to be aimed at parents who are themselves young in the faith, and to leave the gospel half-untold will not help them lead their children to the Lord.
Having said this, it does divide the Bible up into small chunks that can be digested by small appetites (the analogy of a meal is used throughout the book). This would be a good book to give to new parents or to recent believers with children.
