Helping Children Think Christianly - Resources for Christian Parents Part 3

Today we are going to talk about the older kids a little (6-14). Earlier this year, Theologian Bruce Ware came out with Big Truths for Young Hearts: Teaching and Learning the Greatness of God by Bruce Ware that teaches the basics of theology in 2-3 pages snippets with a key verse of scripture to read and questions. This book project came out of his nightly bed time routine with his own kids -- a captive audience and they don't want to go to bed just yet ;).

Parents will learn a ton from this book! It is well written, but very accessible. You could buy it, and stay a day ahead of your child. Ware does a good job on teaching what Christians believe. This is a wonderful resource!


"A theologically rich resource to aid parents in training their children. Anyone who wants to help children grow in their love for Jesus and understanding of the Bible needs this book." - Mark Driscoll, Pastor of Mars Hill Church, Seattle; President of Acts 29 and The Resurgence

"This is a great book for children and their parents on the classic doctrines of the faith. I heartily recommend it to every parent!" - Dennis Rainey, President, FamilyLife

"My conversion and discipleship as a young girl were significantly influenced by my parents reading to our family a book that taught biblical doctrine to children in a systematic way. The church today must be intentional in passing on to the next generation the core and precious beliefs on which our Christian faith rests. To neglect that responsibility is to leave those who come behind us vulnerable to every wind of (false) doctrine and to risk their rejecting our faith altogether. Big Truths for Young Hearts is a rich resource for parents, teachers, and others who care about helping the next generation know and love God and his ways. In addition to being a theology course for children and young people, it is also a great refresher course for adults." - Nancy Leigh DeMoss, author; host of Revive Our Hearts radio broadcast

"Imagine a respected theologian devoting himself to training a new generation of pastors and scholars in the seminary classroom. Now imagine him driving home at night to teach that profound theology in simple terms to his children at their bedsides. Now imagine this father compiling those bedside conversations into a book available to all pastors, parents, and children alike. Imagine no more. My friend Dr. Bruce Ware has done it." - C. J. Mahaney, Sovereign Grace Ministries

Product Description
Equips parents to guide their young children through all major doctrines in an understandable, chapter-a-day format.

Sure, it's easy to teach your children the essentials of Christian theology when you're a theology professor. But what about the rest of us?

With Big Truths for Young Hearts, Bruce Ware, (you guessed it!) a theology professor, encourages and enables parents of children 6-14 years of age to teach through the whole of systematic theology at a level their children can understand. Parents can teach their children the great truths of the faith and shape their worldviews early, based on these truths.

The book covers ten topics of systematic theology, devoting several brief chapters to each subject, making it possible for parents to read one chapter per day with their children. With this non-intimidating format, parents will be emboldened to be their children's primary faith trainers-and perhaps learn a few things themselves along the way.
