Cold-Case Christianity for Kids by J. Warner and Susie Wallace - A Review

So I signed up for a few different books that were more applicable when we had the girls, and this was one of them.  But I am glad I got it, because it is a really great introduction to apologetics. 

From the publisher:
Between the ages of 8 and 12, kids often start to wonder if Christianity is true.
In Cold-Case Christianity for Kids, detective J. Warner Wallace draws readers into the thrill of high-stakes investigation by showing them how to think rather than telling them what to think. In this children’s companion to the bestselling Cold-Case Christianity, detective Wallace gets kids excited about testing witnesses, examining the evidence, and investigating the case for Christianity. Includes author illustrations and links to a website where kids can download activities, fill in case notes, and earn a certificate of merit.


The book is really interesting, because it is a great mix of fiction and non-fiction, but does not confuse the two.  When the book starts out, it is a story about some children joining a junior detective class, and to be honest I was a little thrown off.  It was not the start I was expecting, but it soon made great sense.  In the book you look at how to examine evidence, and those skills are used to look at evidence for a kid-friendly mystery case, as well as Christianity.

It is a quick read, but still gives a very in depth (for children) explanation of why we can believe that the New Testament is true.  I enjoyed reading this book and it made me want to get the Cold-Case Christianity book to read for myself.  I also was intrigued at the thought of using this junior detective format to run a real life apologetics class for children.

Christmas is coming soon, and if I had anyone on my list that was the appropriate age group for this book, I would definitely purchase Cold-Case Christianity for Kids.

I was given this book free of charge from the publisher via LitFuse.  All opinions are my own.
