Big Truths for Young Hearts: Teaching and Learning the Greatness of God by Bruce A. Ware

I love when a wonderful resource comes out that is done in an easy to read and understand format for multiple ages that can easily explain Biblical truths. Big Truths for Young Hearts is one of those books, geared for parents of children ages 6 - 14, it explains Christian theology in an easy to read and understandable format.

Oftentimes parents can find themselves lost in answering questions and this book can be a jumping off place to start in explaining Biblical truths. The truths covered in this book make it a good read for any denomination of Christianity who believes the Jesus is the Savior and He is the only way to Heaven. One chapter discusses God as Three in One and goes on to break down into there is only one God, one God in three persons, the Father is God, The Son is God, The Holy Spirit is God and how the Father, Son and Holy Spirit relate.

At the end of each chapter are questions for thought, which even the youngest child could answer with rephrasing it for the child's age or ability. Also included are a memory verse - the family can use their own version of the Bible for this or use the book which is using the ESV (English Standard Version). I really enjoy the straight forward approach to teaching children about God - which all Christian parents should strive for.

Overall, this book is a wonderful resource for any Christian family and it will prove to be invaluable to the homeschooling family as it would definitely be an easy way to approach devotionals and teaching about the Bible in a easy to do manner, especially with multiple age ranges.

**I'd like to thank Amy Stephansen at Crossway for providing a copy of this book for my honest review.
