Title: The 21 Toughest Questions Your Kids Will Ask About Christianity
Author: Alex McFarland
Genre: Family and Relationships, Parenting
About the book:
University apologist, director, and popular speaker Alex McFarland has spent the last two decades answering questions about Christian worldview and the Bible from children, teens, and parents. In The 21 Toughest Questions Your Kids Will Ask about Christianity, he summarizes questions today’s children and teens are asking about God, the Bible, and the problem of evil.
Alex’s experiences have taught him that how adults answer questions about God is as important as, if not more important than, what kids ask. He provides parents with teaching strategies that will help them reach their children intellectually and spiritually. Today’s kids and teens are looking for authenticity, integrity, and straightforward truth. Alex comes alongside parents and gives them tools to effectively answer not only their children’s toughest academic questions but also the questions that plague their hearts.
When I got the opportunity to review this book I jumped at the chance because just the title alone drew me in. As a Christian I too have had questions about religion that I haven’t gotten answers that seemed to work for me. After reading the first five pages I could tell that I was going to not only get information to share with my children but I could also learn some things for myself. One thing I’ve always been told about having faith is that you are not to question God, the Bible or anything about it and at times it just leads to more confusion and questions instead of helping me build a stronger faith or belief in the bible. It seems that when hard times and trouble hits is when we are doubtful and questioning the most. This is a must have for any family for their book shelf. It’s not just about finding answers for your children but finding answers that could help anyone when you have a question about Christianity.
