For ages 8 to adult.
Catechism is a great idea—kind of.
Being exposed to central doctrines of the Christian faith is the great part.What’s not so great is wading through man made verbiage that often seems to hide as much truth as it explains. Now Building a Christian Worldview Verse by Verse handles that quandary by answering 52 core questions about the Faith with specific scriptures to explain doctrinal truths—word-for-word from the Bible itself.
This handy and helpful book works either as a highly organized Scripture memory tool or a family devotional with depth. If you choose the memorization route, your children will remember a scriptural truth for every week of the year. If you use Building a Christian Worldview for family devotions, you’ll all wind up with a deeper appreciation for why we believe what we believe.
The pages are designed to facilitate speedy memorization: each question and the scriptural answer is “writ large” on a single page. And when an expanded explanation is needed, you’ll find it on the page following.The friendly layout makes it easy to enjoy this refreshing way to train kids in core Christian beliefs.
Best of all, the knowledge you and your family will gain from Building a Christian Worldview Verse by Verse won’t just “sit on the shelf.” Each worldview question digs into a core Christian doctrine, and taken together, they construct a clear picture of how to apply Biblical truth to every issue and action in life.
