Book Review: I Believe in Jesus

I Believe in Jesus: Leading Your Child to Christ
by John MacArthur
Illustrated by Dominique Mertens
Published by Tommy Nelson

Starting with the account of Creation, this beautifully illustrated picture book shares the Gospel in clear words for children. John MacArthur, the author, explains how everything God created was good. But then the sins of Adam and Eve separated them (and us) from God. Yet because of His great love for us, God did not want heaven without us. So God had a plan. His plan included sending Jesus to die on the cross and offer us forgiveness for our sins. God offers us the gift of eternal life to each one of us so that we can live with Him in heaven forever.

What I Like
One of my favorite things about this book is that it provides an understandable and practical way for parents and grandparents as well as teachers and caregivers to share the Gospel with children. The text is conversational and engaging to draw the child in. Plus, there are Scriptures all throughout the book that ground each concept on the Bible. At the end of the book, there is an opportunity for children to BELIEVE that Jesus is the Savior of the world. And then RECEIVE Jesus as their personal Savior.

The most important thing we can share with anyone is the Truth about Jesus Christ and the Gospel. This is a wonderful book to read with children and share the Gospel in a meaningful and complete way. But it is more than that. It is a book that can be shared with adults, too. If you have unbelieving relatives or friends, this would be a very meaningful gift to give them or have in your home when they come to visit. Highly recommended.

Thanks, BookLook Bloggers for another wonderful book in exchange for my honest review.
