This book is a simple summary of the truths of God's Word, and is compiled as a set of questions and answers to help children aged 7 to 9 learn not just the Bible stories but the truths behind them.
The Truths of God's Word can be used at home, for catechism or Bible class, for home schooling, and in Christian schools. Teaching our children, however, is primarily our responsibility as parents. "Come, ye children, hearken unto me: I will teach you the fear of the LORD" Psalm. 34:11. "Those that seek me early shall find me" Proverbs. 8:17. "Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it." Proverbs 22:6
A Teachers' Manual for the Truths of God's Word is also available.
