Think- Act- Be, these are the responses every Christian should have when studying God’s word. BELIEVE KIDS’ EDITION by Randy Frazee is a Bible study for young children using the NIV Bible translation, recommended age 8-12.
My grandson (age 7) has the BELIEVE storybook edition and my granddaughter (age 11) has the BELIEVE student edition I approached this book review thinking about how they would receive the information as it was presented.
Unlike most Bible commentaries and study guides BELIEVE focuses on application of the word. The reader is encouraged to think about what he or she has read, consider how to respond or act to what was read and apply what was learned in his or her life. This book makes a great introduction to faith and Bible study because it matches Old Covenant Scripture with New Covenant Scripture. Upon completion of BELIEVE KID’S EDITION young people will understand why it is important to follow Jesus.
I have reviewed each of the BELIEVE books: Storybook, Kid’s Edition, Student Edition and the adult version, I think I enjoyed the student’s edition the most though I appreciated the value of each. There is something very appropriate about the presentation of the material as well as the order in which it was presented. I am amazed at the amount of information that was presented though the book is less than 1/4 the size of a Bible (Kid’s Edition is 210 pages)
Any of these books including BELIEVE Kids’ Edition would be great to use for Bible Study at home and in your church. I recommend this book.
