THE TRUSTWORTHINESS OF GOD FOR TEN YEAR OLDS

12/13/2017

My son just turned 10. He thinks at a deeper level than most 10-year-olds and is having a hard time understanding why we believe the Bible to be true. I have answered some of his questions, but the evidence is not necessarily kid-friendly. Are there are any apologetic-type resources for kids in this age group?


Joe,

Thank you for your good question. Every person is different and every 10 year old is different. With your counsel in mind, let me recommend the following:

Geoff Thomas, THE SURE WORD OF GOD; Brynterion
Press

Greg Gilbert,WHY TRUST THE BIBLE?; Crossway

Kevin DeYoung, TAKING GOD AT HIS WORD; Crossway

I hope your son has the help of the Holy Spirit to lead him into all truth. Scripture teaches that each of us is born with a such a bias that 2 + 2 =5 or 87 or anything but 4. Tell your son that unless he reads with a humble, submissive spirit, He will not see or know the truth (John 7:17; Romans 1:18-21).

Your Book Servant,
