A ‘Radical’ Book for Kids

Often we post excerpts of parenting books or related articles from authors in order to share helpful resources with you. Mostly those books target parents. But this book is for the kids. You will be involved, of course, whether through reading it to your preschooler or talking about it with your older children. However, as you will see in the excerpt below, children should be turning the pages on this beautifully illustrated hardback in order to appreciate and benefit from the entirety of its treasures.

Author Champ Thornton takes children deep into the ancient roots and origins of the Christian faith with the gorgeously illustrated and extremely kid-friendly The Radical Book for Kids. Think of this book as an explorer’s guide to the Bible, church history, and life, mixing practical and theological elements with fun activities such as a 3,000-year-old board game and a tutorial on how to make a (kid-safe) David-style slingshot.

Full of charts, design elements, and illustrations that captivate and inspire, The Radical Book for Kids will have beginning, advanced, and even reluctant readers engrossed in engaging chapters covering important aspects of Christianity, such as:

  • Biblical history
  • Theology
  • Fun facts
  • Church history
  • Daily Christian living
  • Radical faith in the face of adversity
  • Roots of the faith
  • The lives of historical men and women of faith

Take a look at chapter one.
