Review: Cold-Case Christianity For Kids by J. Warner and Susie Wallace with Rob Suggs

About the book:

Cold-Case Christianity for Kids (David C. Cook, October 2016)

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.

My Review:

Cold-Case Christianity for Kids is an engrossing read that shows kids steps for being a good detective.  There are two cases that are worked out: one is a fictional case about a mysterious skateboard and the second is the case that has to do with Jesus and if he was real.   There was some scripture, but the author/detective backed up the existence of Jesus with historical fact while giving assignments and tips throughout the chapters.  At the end of each chapter you received a “tool” for your detective bag.

My 11 year old son read this book and enjoyed it very much.  He especially liked the funny illustrations, he liked the engaging way the author made the detective work relevant to him, and the scripture verses the author used.  My son read this book quickly and when he discovered something new he shared his revelations with me.

I think this book is an engaging tool to get kids thinking about the truths of Christ and His existence here on earth.  I recommend this book for homeschoolers, youth ministries, or just leisure reading.  There is also a free “Cadet Academy” available online.

I received a copy of this book for free.   A favorable review was not required and all views expressed are my own.
