Teaching children from the word of God is a challenge these days. That's why we need all the help we can get. And this is what this catechism gives you - help. If you want to take your children beyond Bible stories to the truths behind them then this book and the Teacher's manual it accompanies are just what you need.
We want our children to have a real and living faith in their Saviour. We want them to grow up with strong, biblical foundations. Bible Questions and Answers is a vital resource to help Christian families and churches teach their children the fundamentals of the Christian faith.
Books like this tackle Biblical ignorance at its source. Children who are introduced to this material early on in their lives will be given firm foundations in scriptural knowledge. These foundations are gifts that they will never lose.
Written for children aged approximately 5-7 years, Bible Questions and Answers is written in a clear, concise style. It is easily understood yet it does not sacrifice the richness of God's Word. Each question and answer is supported by one or more scripture references. Doctrines covered include creation and man's fall, salvation, the law, the sacraments, prayer, death and eternity.
