Yes, Bible commentaries for parents to read to their children. This series of books provides what children need—solid truths to grow in. In these books, Nancy Ganz draws out the beautiful implications of the Old Testament narrative that are foundational for Christian faith.

Nancy Ganz has spent the last twenty years in her native land of Canada, helping her husband, Dr. Richard Ganz, in church-planting work and home-schooling their four daughters. She received her formal theological training from the University of Toronto prior to her conversion to Christ at L’Abri in the Netherlands. However, it has been the many years of Bible study since that time which has produced here Herein is Love commentaries on the Old Testament. Currently, most of her time is spent studying the Scriptures, writing various books, and taking long walks along the country roads and woodland paths near her home.



“Interesting and very competent… a major contribution!” — D.A. Carson, Research Professor of New Testament, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School

“Doctrinally sure-footed, warmly devotional and refined of years of practical teaching experience, these lessons will prove an invaluable resource for all those engaged in training children for God. As society drifts ever farther from biblical moorings, here is timely help towards preparing a new generation to stand steadfast in the faith and, by God’s grace, impact the world for King Jesus.” — Ted Donnelly, President, Reformed Theological College, Belfast

“Where can one even think of finding such treasures as these fine commentaries on Bible books written for children? A tour de force in children’s literature.” — Derek Thomas, Professor of Systematic and Practical Theology, Reformed Theological Seminary

“What I have appreciated most—in addition to fine insights into the text—is the spirit and tone in which it is written. It reads as one who delights in the greatness and love of God; one who has childlike respect for God. And this also commends itself to children. I have been helped in ‘becoming like a child’ in reading Nancy’s work. I am thankful for her fine work and dedication.” — Brian Coombs, Pastor, Syracuse Reformed Presbyterian Church
