With Back to School here for most of us, you may be looking at a way to sneak in some bible study, or looking for a different bible curriculum already, as your kids are bored, especially for older elementary kids.

I have JUST the book for you!


Give kids the tools to investigate the evidence of God in His creation!


God's Crime Scene for Kids cover

Synopsis:

In this companion to Cold-CaseChristianity for Kids, Jason uncovers a mystery in his grandmother's attic. He and his friends, Hannah, Daniel and Jasmine, enlist the help of Detective Jeffries at the Jr. Detective's Academy. Along the way, they develop the skills needed to investigate the mystery and the evidence of God's existence. The cadets learn logical-thinking skills as they examine the contents of a mysterious box and the vast universe.

In God's Crime Scene for Kids, real-life detective J. Warner Wallace shows kids ages 8 to 12 what skills are needed to solve Jason's mystery, and at the same time looks at evidence in the universe that demonstrates God is the creator. Ultimately, kids will learn how to make their own case for God's existence.

Review:

This is more than JUST a  bible study book for kids!  this easy reader chapter book, reads like a comic book, BUT what it is teaching kids is to not only realize how much they already know about Hod, but how they can justify his existence to others! At the older elementary age, when they start questioning, this is the perfect time for this book! By using a 'crime scene' concept, J Warner lets kids discuss and formulate their own theories, in a way that they can easily understand!

PLUS, there is an online component that goes along with the book, that helps both kids and their teachers/parents!

Before you start reading, I would suggest that you download all the adult guides, which can be found on the Crime Scene website, by each chapter, then download the activity sheets and notebook sheets, so that kids have them ready, as they are reading, for jotting down any applicable notes (as you can see below). Then when they finish reading the chapter, have your child go back online and view the video from J Warner, as his videos point out key information from the chapter, and offers valuable explanations and further examples, to make sure they are understanding each chapter's points.

This is actually the 2nd book in the J Warner's series for kids, the first being Cold Case Christianity for Kids (which we've previously reviewed), and a 3rd book, Forensic Faith will be coming out probably next year.

Miss Grace really liked the 1st book in the series, so i know she'll love working on this one too! I will probably use it in the Spring, after we finish the one we're on now. I love that it not only gets kids reading, but has them reading their bibles, and seeing how they CAN substantiate the case for God! if you home school, you not only are covering Bible, but also Reading, Writing AND Critical thinking! you have to love a book that does all that! If you have kids who hate bible study, this just might be the book to get them back to loving it! We highly recommend it!
