Small Devotionals Introducing your Family to Big Truths
It is a wonderful privilege to watch children start to grasp the precious truths of Scripture. Parents may hope to see this in a family devotion time, only to become overwhelmed and exhausted by the daily difficulties involved. We need help!
Big Beliefs! is a devotional expressly intended to enable parents to succeed and children to grow in grace and knowledge. Three weekly readings accompanied by suggested Scripture passages introduce and simply explain thirty-three key theological concepts found in the Westminster Confession of Faith (included in its entirety, in modern English). Questions following each reading will help you to start a conversation about what you have learned each day. This nonthreatening, encouraging devotional will make a comprehensive beginning to your child’s understanding of Christianity’s big beliefs.
“Big Beliefs! is a great book. It’s faithful, telling children the truth about God, his Word, and what his people must believe. It’s substantive, not dumbing down doctrine to present it to children. And, it’s realistic, providing language, illustrations, and lesson length that will work for real families who have real children.”
— Starr Meade, Author, Training Hearts, Teaching Minds: Family Devotions Based on the Shorter Catechism
“A family devotional teaching the most important truths in the world in simple bite-size chunks with up-to-date illustrations and stimulating questions. Why didn’t someone think of this before? I commend this excellent resource to all Christian families.”
— David Murray, Pastor, Grand Rapids Free Reformed Church and author of Christians Get Depressed Too and How Sermons Work
